Minute by minute

86'Off, Jozy Altidore. On, Stuart Holden.
84'Frank Lampard comes close for England. Aaron Lennon scampers down the right, feeds the ball into the box just ahead of the Chelsea man and Oguchi Onyewu blocks bravely.
81'Peter Crouch's first touch is a header, from a Rooney cross, which is more of a gesture than an effort on goal.
79'Off, Emile Heskey. On, Peter Crouch.
77'Off, Robbie Findley. On, Edson Buddle.
77'Heskey is the next player to come close for England as he heads over the bar after a delicious right-wing cross from the skipper.
75'Shaun Wright-Phillips should have done better when played in by Rooney. The Man City winger has bags of time inside the box and side-foots the ball straight at the grateful Howard.
74'Wayne Rooney creates a chance out of nothing. He receives the ball with his back to goal, turns quickly and fires goalwards, but the ball drifts just wide.
74'Robbie Findley. Slides in late on Gerrard.
71'Gerrard swings a deep cross into the box where Rooney finds himself unmarked at the far post, however the ball is just too high for the United man to connect.
65'Rob Green produces an excellent stop to keep the scores level. Jozy Altidore cuts in from the left and tests Green at his near post, but the 'keeper tips the ball on to the post.
64'The subsequent corner, taken by Lampard, finds its way to the back post where Johnson controls brilliantly but can only shoot wide.
63'Howard saves from Lampard, tipping the Chelsea midfielder's shot over the bar.
62'Carlos Bocanegra is unable to direct Landon Donovan's in-swinging free-kick goalwards.
52'Emile Heskey should have put England back into the lead. He races on to Aaron Lennon's through ball, bares down on goal but plumps for power rather than accuracy and drills the ball straight into Howard's body.
52'Heskey has a great chance after Lennon's through-ball but shoots straight at Howard.
50'Lennon gets to the by-line and cuts a cross back, but it's just behind Rooney and Heskey and the USA clear the danger.
47'Jay Demerit. Handball.
46'Off, Ledley King. On, Jamie Carragher.
40'Clint Dempsey. The USA are level and it's a tragic mistake by Green. A harmless shot from Dempsey looks to have been easily saved, but the goalkeeper somehow loses grip and slips past him and into the goal.
39'Donovan comes as close as the USA have been, as he shoots inches wide from 25 yards.
39'Steve Cherundolo. The USA right-back is booked for a foul on SWP.
38'Wright-Phillips flashes a shot wide of the target, after cutting inside from the left.
34'A nice link-up between Wright-Phillips and Ashley Cole sees the latter race to the by-line bit his cross is cut out just before it reaches Rooney.
33'Green makes a simple save, to deny Altidore's low strike from 25 yards.
31'Off, James Milner. On, Shaun Wright-Phillips. England's first substitution of the game, as Milner is withdrawn to be replaced by Shaun Wright-Phillips.
29'A fine centre from Glen Johnsom on the right sees Howard make a brave save at the feet of Heskey. The American goalkeeper receives treatment.
27'Altidore sends another header wide of the target, following Donovan's free-kick from the right flank.
26'James Milner. England's first caution of the competition goes to Milner following a trip on Steve Cherundolo. He'd earlier committed a similar foul on the same player.
20'Rooney's low shot at goal from 20 yards is saved by Tim Howard.
19'Aaron Lennon breaks into the box after collecting a chest down from Wayne Rooney, but his centre is cut out and the chance is gone.
18'Altidore really should've brought the USA level, after rising highest to meet Landon Donovan's cross only to guide it wide of the target. A let off for England.
13'A third successive corner for the US, as they look to find a way back into the game.
12'USA force a corner when Gerrard blocks Alitdore's attempted cross.
11'Rob Green is forced into his first save of the game, when he makes a simple stop from Clint Dempsey's header in the box.
09'Emile Heskey wins a free-kick 30 yards from goal, but Frank Lampard's effort is deflected behind for a corner.
04'Steven Gerrard. England have the perfect start! A move from the right sees Emile Heskey slip a pass into the area and Gerrard was onto it in a flash to poke home past Tim Howard with the outside of his right foot.
02'Jozy Altidore's cross from the left is cleared by John Terry.
