After a tie against Wales on Monday, the United States soccer team is gearing up for a considerably tougher match today against England in their second 2022 World Cup game. Since the World Cup schedule was released almost eight months ago, fans have been feverish for this Black Friday match, and for good reason: It’s the third USA vs. England World Cup game in history, and it’s a crucial match for USMNT’s chances of making it to the knockout round.

In other words, this is a game to watch for any USA or England fans. Below, we’ve outlined a few ways to watch USA vs. England online today, plus a few options that let you live stream USA vs. England online for free.
How to Watch USA vs. England Online Free With a VPN
One of the best ways to watch USA vs. England online for free is to use a virtual private network (VPN) like ExpressVPN or NordVPN. This will let you access free World Cup live streams from the U.K. and Australia (with English commentary), including USA vs. England today.
VPNs, for the unfamiliar, essentially “trick” your streaming device into thinking it’s in another country, letting you access streaming services that aren’t normally available in the U.S. The best VPNs are safe, reliable, and easy to use, even if you’ve never heard of them before.
We recommend ExpressVPN and NordVPN because they’re fast, affordable, and super secure. ExpressVPN costs $12.95 a month and offers slightly more speed, while NordVPN costs $11.99 per month and delivers more servers (I.e. more locations).
Both VPNs come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can cancel within a month and get all your money back. Read our full comparison review of ExpressVPN and NordVPN here.
Once you’ve signed up for a VPN, use it to connect to a server in the U.K. and watch USA vs. England online for free on ITV, or connect to an Australian server and stream the game for free on SBS.

USA vs. England Odds, Prediction
Ranked No. 16 in the World Cup, USMNT faces an uphill battle today against No. 5-ranked England — especially after tying with Wales on Monday, when most fans assumed it would be a win for USMNT. England, meantime, has proven their high ranking after steamrolling Iran in a 6-2 victory. Still, when they’re on form, Gregg Berhalter’s U.S. squad has proven to be dangerous.
By the numbers, USA vs. England should be fairly close: Vegas has England to win with odds of -180 against USMNT’s +310 (FanDuel).
