England-USA on the field at 8 pm on 25 November, for group B of the World Cup in Qatar.

The performance fielded against Iran "would not be enough" to get the better of the United States.

Despite the 6-2 in the first outing of the World Cup, Gareth Southgate wants his England to "raise the level further" tomorrow to take another victory and qualify immediately for the round of 16 with a game to spare.

If then three will be needed "so be it".

And which team would you like to avoid in knockout matches?: "Now let's think about the USA, there's no point in looking further".

"We will play against a highly motivated team and we will have enormous respect for our opponents. They have athletic qualities, they press everywhere, they are organized and well trained. We know their quality and we will have to be at our best - said the selector at the press conference - The risk is to think that,

having played well in the first game we can take it to the next.

It's not like that and I don't think we will underestimate the United States."

A team "that presses the ball very well. It will be a challenge that won't follow the same lines as the previous one. With all due respect, we face players who compete with the best European leagues".

England have never beaten the USA in a World Cup and for this reason the coach added: "We have to try to make history".

"No, the players and I have to concentrate on the matches" he then answered when asked if, after Germany's gesture of protest over Fifa's ban on wearing the OneLove armband, England are thinking of something like that.

Meanwhile, the good news comes from the infirmary because captain Harry Kane will be able to take the field, said Southgate.

The Tottenham striker suffered an ankle injury early in the second half of the match against Iran.

"Harry's fine. He's been doing a slightly different job than the group, but he's fine. We had an MRI to make sure everything was okay."

He didn't score against Iran, but Kane's importance in the Three Lions' offensive line is attested by the numbers: with 51 goals in 76 appearances, he scored 35% of those scored by the national team in matches that saw him on the pitch since his debut in March 2015. Manchester United defender Harry Maguire's condition has also improved, like Kane replaced on Monday,

after a blow to the head that had caused him vision problems.

Defender Kyle Walker is also ready for what would be his first game since groin surgery in October.
