The 2022 World Cup has already seen a number of massive upsets. The U.S. Men’s National Team hopes to add to that storyline as they take on an old foe, England, Friday. After a 1-1 draw against Wales in their first match, Team USA coach Gregg Berhalter has decided to make a change in the lineup.

Haji Wright enters the starting 11 for the United States, leaving Josh Sargent on the bench. Many were surprised when Wright was added to the USMNT roster, but he had been playing very well of late. He scored nine goals in 12 games at the Turkish club Antalyaspor. Berhalter hopes to capture some of that magic in a bottle in what will be a difficult game to capture even one point.
England, meanwhile, is maintaining the same starting 11 from their 6-2 win over Iran.
