The runners-up of this group will face the winners of Group D.

England is the most historically successful team in the group, having won the 1966 FIFA World Cup. This is England's thirteenth appearance in the World Cup finals. This will be the United States' sixth straight appearance out of a total of nine. Algeria qualified for the third time after competing in the 1982 and 1986 FIFA World Cup finals. Slovenia is competing in a World Cup final for the second time.

Only England and the United States have previously met in a World Cup, the 1950 FIFA World Cup, where neither side advanced from their group. In their meeting, the United States defeated England 1–0. The United States did not play in another World Cup until 1990, and England qualified for eight of the next ten World Cups, including 1990.
