England are back in World Cup action tomorrow evening with a big game against USA.
The next two games for England have always expected to be their toughest games, after facing Iran in the group opener and thrashing them 6-2.
Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount both started that game and played well, with the aforementioned getting a goal and an assist. But things are expected to get tougher now and they will all need to be on top of their game to get a result against Chelsea teammate Christian Pulisic’s USA.
England will also need all their best players fully fit, and there have been some concerns over striker and captain Harry Kane.
Sterling has been speaking ahead of the game this week, and he says that he hasn’t even noticed that Kane had a knock, suggesting it sounds like he will be just fine.

As reported by HITC, Sterling said: “He [Harry Kane] is someone, with his physicality, when he holds the ball up, he can create stuff as well. So, he’s someone you stay close to because you know that he does have a good eye for a pass.
“Honestly, I woke up this morning seeing all this stuff. I haven’t even noticed that he had a knock or anything, so I don’t know too much about it.
“Like everything, you don’t want to see anybody hurt in the squad. We want him on the pitch as much as we can.
“But if worse comes to worse, then we do have a good squad and people that can fill the void. The more we can have him on the pitch, the better for us.”
