This game has been hyped beyond reason on this side of the Pond, and the takes that will follow regardless of the result are sure to overheat Twitter’s understaffed servers.
But at the end of the day, it’s still just football, and two teams with high aspirations will battle it out for a crucial three points in Group B. An England win would guarantee them a place in the Round of 16. A USA win could practically do the same for them.
Both Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount start, as does Raheem Sterling.
England lost 1-0 to the US in 1950 and drew 1-1 in 2010. Third time the charm?
Here we go!
