The Three Lions of England were held to a goalless draw by USA in their second Group B game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
With the result, England, who started their campaign with a 6-2 win over Iran, miss the chance to seal qualification for the knockout stage.
England however remain favourites to qualify for the knockout stage, knowing they only need to avoid a four-goal defeat against Wales in their final group game to progress.
USA had played a draw with Wales in their opening game, while earlier in the day, Wales were beaten 2-0 by Iran in the group’s other matchday two fixture.
In the other World Cup games played on Friday, Senegal defeated hosts Qatar 3-1 to send them out of the tournament.
In Group A’s other fixture, Netherlands and Ecuador played 1-1.
