England are going through a tough reality check after losing a tense 0-0 draw to the youthful United States for a long period of time in their second World Cup Group B match on Friday.

A 6-2 win over Iran on Monday sent fan hopes skyrocketing, but Gareth Southgate’s side were fortunate not to suffer a repeat of the 1950 World Cup tragedy against the USA. .

England captain Harry Kane was restricted to half chances, but the closest England came to scoring was Mason Mount’s effort on the half-time stroke.

The second half saw a back and forth momentum, but the best chance came in the 87th minute when England’s Marcus Rashford fired a straight shot that was easily stopped by Matt Turner.

Then, in the 3rd minute of injury time, Kane headed a free kick, but the ball went outside the goal.

This was the first time the USA had shutout against European opponents at the World Cup since their 1-0 victory over England in Brazil in 1950.

Despite a disappointing result and performance, England lead the group with four points and remain in the box seat to advance to the last 16.
