Phil Foden and Jack Grealish show off their superb ball control in England training ahead of next World Cup test against the USA

    After their World Cup opening win against Iran, it would be safe to say that spirits are high in the England camp.

    The Three Lions currently sit top of Group B, and in preparation for the next game, against USA, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden were showing off their impressive skills.

    Grealish was full of confidence in training after his goal against Iran and was seen in a rally with Foden

    The Manchester City duo came off the bench in the 6-2 victory against Iran, with Grealish getting himself onto the scoresheet late on in the match.

    In a video posted on England’s Twitter account, Foden and Grealish are seen practising their keepie-ups, before passing the ball to each other across a sports hall.

    The midfielders make each pass, juggle and control look effortless.

    Towards the end of an amazing rally between the two, Grealish then attempted to catch the ball in between his knees.

    The 27-year-old was successful in doing so, but he was unable to resume their back and forth, with Foden jokingly crying out: ‘What’s he doing?”

    Two of England’s other scorers against Iran, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford, could also be seen in the video as some of Southgate’s stars opted to practice with a football, with others having a go at basketball.

    The Three Lions will return to World Cup action in Qatar on Friday against the USA, who earned themselves a 1-1 draw against Wales earlier in the week.

    Both sides last met each other in the group stage of the competition in 2010, with a 1-1 draw being the final result as England eventually crashed out in the round of 16 against Germany.

    Southgate’s side know a win against the Americans would see them progress to the round of 16 and further solidify their spot at the top of Group B.

    Wales will then be their final test before the knockout stages, with England already in a commanding position compared to their opponents.
