Another goalless draw as England hold off USA

A vibrant United States side outplayed England in their World Cup Group B battle but were left to rue a flurry of missed chances as they were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw at the Al Bayt Stadium on Friday.

England, unchanged from Monday’s 6-2 win over Iran, could have sealed their place in the knockout phase with a win but were careless in possession and struggled frequently. The youthful American side, full of pace and skill, kept England on the back foot for much of the game.

The Three Lions didn’t manage a shot on goal in the second half until the 87th minute, with only three shots on goal in the whole match.

Even with this poor result, England will qualify for the last 16 unless Wales beat them by four or more goals when they face off next Tuesday.

More to come.
