AL-RAYYAN, Qatar -- United States men's national team midfielder Tyler Adams says that beating England on Friday at the World Cup would fast-track the impact his side can have on the sport in the US.

The two sides will square off in the second match for both teams in Group B. England top the group with three points following their 6-2 hammering of Iran, while the USMNT were forced to settle for a disappointing draw against Wales.

But a result against England will put the Americans in good shape to progress to the knockout stages, and is bound to generate an increase in enthusiasm and interest back home.

I think it's obviously a huge opportunity to fast track the impact that we can have, said Adams. These are the games where [it's a] high-pressure, privileged moment to step on the field against some of these guys. We respect them, probably mutual respect between both teams, and when you get a result in a game like this, people start to respect Americans a little bit more.

Adams also added he wouldn't be overawed by the occasion, given he already plays against many of the England players in the Premier League.
