ngland have named an unchanged starting XI for tonight’s World Cup showdown with the USA, with Harry Kane fit to start after an injury scare.

The Three Lions captain had a scan on his ankle on Wednesday morning, after a heavy challenge early in the second half of the 6-2 win over Iran. Kane played on before being taken off 25 minutes later for Callum Wilson.

Gareth Southgate downplayed the incident and in his press conference on Thursday made it clear that Kane would start in England’s second group-stage match.

England have kept faith with the 4-3-3 deployed against Iran, meaning it is an unchanged side that faces the USA.

James Maddison does not feature once again, as he continued to miss training ahead of the game. Harry Maguire came off against Iran with illness, but the centre-back has confirmed he has recovered and is ready to play his part against the USA.

“I felt unwell during the second half but I’ve done all the tests and appropriate action and felt well since,” Maguire said. “I feel well and ready to go.”

USA XI: Turner; Dest, Zimmerman, Ream, Robinson; McKennie, Adams; Musah, Weah, Wright; Pulisic.
