England have thrashed the USA 45-7 on Thursday to maintain their perfect run at the rugby union World Cup in Japan.

However, the match was marred by a savage challenge on Owen Farrell which led USA's John Quill pick up the tournament's first red card.

"Two games with 10 points – no major injuries. Owen just has half his nose missing. Apart from that pretty good," England coach Eddie Jones said.

Meanwhile, England centre Piers Francis who avoided any on-field punishment could also be cited after a high challenge on Will Hooley.

Earlier, Italy secured a 48-7 victory over Canada.
