Before the United States men’s national team plays its next game against the Three Lions on Friday, and in the next edition since Robert Green’s all-time mess, the first World Cup meeting between the two teams Boston Tea Party opponents took place consisting of high-flying English men and part-time Americans.

Joe Gaetjens scored the game’s only goal to give the victory to the Americans, none of whom played professional football. It would be the biggest moment of the USMNT’s last showcase appearance until 1990.
