The US was the better side in a game lacking in clear cut chances. The closest threat came when Christian Pulisic rattled the crossbar with a ferocious effort midway through the first half, but neither side was able to break the deadlock.
The result leaves the head coach Gregg Berhalter’s team third in Group B with two points from two games. Victory in their final group match against Iran on Tuesday will be enough to guarantee a place in the knockout stages. Meanwhile, England will qualify as long as it avoids a four-goal defeat in their match to Wales.
