The rivalry between England and the United States is a weird one. The hatred ranges from petty jibing to purely visceral. It made for a great backdrop prior to their World Cup group stage clash.

After a quiet start, Harry Maguire impressed a global audience with a swivelling dribble in the USA box.

The USA had the better opening chances, with Christian Pulisic hitting the crossbar just after the half-hour mark.

England were poor for much of the first half and were a bit fortunate to get into the break level.

The start of the second half wasn't much brighter for England, with Mason Mount receiving plenty of criticism.

Three Lions fans were begging for substitutions. They got Jordan Henderson. Mount stayed on the pitch.

But ultimately, neither side could find a goal and the spoils were shared. England are helped more by the point, but the USA will be happier with the performance.
