England vs Iran Preview

England enters this game with Iran as a big favorite(-275) and is considered a big favorite to advance out of Group B. However, England comes into this World Cup after suffering a 4-0 loss to Hungary in the UEFA Nations League.

As usual, following a disappointing performance like that, the Three Lions will be under a ton of pressure as they enter this World Cup. However, England had a strong showing in the 2018 World Cup as they advanced to the semifinals.

Iran will be missing one of their best attackers in this World Cup due to injury, but they are known as a solid defensive team that can be tough to score on. The biggest problems for Iran might be in their own locker room and not on the field.

Some players on the team supported women’s rights protests in Iran and that has drawn some criticism from the national federation. Iran isn’t the only team in this matchup that has some issues though.

England has a number of injuries as they are without full-backs Reece James and Ben Chilwell. There are also questions about what kind of shape Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker are in.

Iran will be without Allahyar Sayyadmanesh and Omid Ebrahimi who aren’t on the roster due to injuries. There are also questions about Sardar Azmoun, who hasn’t played since suffering a torn hamstring in October.

This match will be the first meeting ever between England and Iran. The Three Lions haven’t won in their last six matches, which matches the longest streak in team history.

For Iran, the team only mustered 5 points during AFC Qualifying which all came in a draw and loss to South Korea. This is expected to be a low-scoring game with the oddsmakers setting the total at 2.5 total goals and the under currently at -155.

The big key for Iran in this matchup could just be applying pressure. If Iran can keep this game close for a while, does England start to feel all that outside pressure and play tight?

That could be the best opportunity that Iran has to pull off an upset and create some chaos in Group B. This match isn’t the only one in Group B as the US and Wales will face off at 2 pm ET on Monday as well.
