England vs Iran preview


Having reached the semi-finals at World Cup 2018 and been runners-up at Euro 2020, England’s aim is to go one better again - but they do not arrive in Qatar in good form. Gareth Southgate’s men haven’t won in six, and were relegated to Nations League League B in September.

However, they will be expected to begin with a win against Iran, who are the lowest-ranked nation in Group B.

Appearing at a third straight finals for the first time in their history, Iran are once again led by head coach Carlos Queiroz, who was also in charge in 2014 and 2018. The Asians, who have never previously progressed from a World Cup group stage, will be facing England for the first time.

Iran’s recent form is rather better than their opponents’: they’re unbeaten in their last three games, a run that includes a win over Uruguay and a draw with Senegal in September friendlies.

England vs Iran prediction: 1-0

England don’t have a habit of turning in stellar displays in their opening World Cup game, and their recent results don’t inspire optimism that they will buck that trend. The Three Lions should get the job done, though.
