Back!? At no time were England in control of the game.
I‘d say first 20 minutes were England we had the momentum, the middle part of the game was all USA and the last 20 minutes was pretty even both teams just cancelled each other out at the end probably settling for the point. Looked to me like USA changed formation at HT they went two up top with Pulisic playing as the tip of a diamond. The two striker and Pulisic completely shut down England‘s centre back passing options.
I don’t recall USA having an attempt at goal in the final part of the game. They had that spell of corners early in the second half which England dealt with but USA‘s last shot at goal came in the 62nd minute from what I can find.
The momentum was very much with USA when Henderson came on they were dominating the midfield after he came on England started to compete in there and were able to get a foot in the game.
1 limp attempt by Rashford but had a great chance to win it with the Kane header in injury time.
