England vs USA: Numbers you need to know before their 2022 FIFA World Cup encounter

Despite all the talent they have on board, England have struggled to win games of late. Their 6-2 victory over Iran on Monday was their first in seven games. Their six-game winless streak included two losses against Hungary and one against Italy. England also settled for two draws against Germany during this slump.

The USA haven't done much better either. They are winless in their last four games in all competitions. It's also worth noting that the USMNT have not kept a clean sheet in their last 18 World Cup games against European opposition, shipping in a total of 32 goals.

Harry Kane has scored 51 goals in 76 appearances for the England national team. Kane suffered an ankle injury in the game against Iran and England are waiting for scan results to see if he will be fit for the game against the USA. The Tottenham Hotspur striker is key to this team and fans will be hoping that the injury isn't too serious.

This will be the third meeting between the USA and England at the FIFA World Cup. The United States won the first game 1-0 in 1950 and the second one in 2010 ended in a draw. Suffice it to say, England will be looking to pick up their first win over the USA at the FIFA World Cup when the two sides clash on Saturday.
