England will be keen to put recent disappointments behind them and start the FIFA World Cup 2022 on a high note when they kick-start their campaign against Iran. The Monday evening clash will have the Three Lions as heavy favourites and it is quite understandable when the quality of both squads is analysed. However, form is not on Gareth Southgate’s side, as they are heading into this contest on the back of a poor Nations League campaign. It should give Iran the confidence of pulling an upset result in their World Cup opener.

Placed in League A Group 3, which was regarded by many as the group of death, the Three Lions could only manage three points from six matches. England not only failed to win any of those six games but their struggles in front of goals would have been a major concern for their supporters. Despite their poor run, they are still expected to get the better of Iran on Monday. Meanwhile, Iran are heading into this contest on the back of a mixed set of results. The only concern is Iran’s inability to score frequent goals, however, to their credit, they are conceding less amount of goals.

Possible Lineups

England have a squad filled with quality players all over the pitch. Even though they have a few injury concerns, Gareth Southgate still has a great bunch of players at his disposal. It is highly unlikely that Kyle Walker will be risked in this match, while there were earlier question marks over James Maddison’s availability. He has a better chance of featuring at some point in the game. It is also unclear if Kalvin Phillips will partner Declan Rice in the midfield. Meanwhile, Iran will be sweating over the fitness situation of Sardar Azmoun. He could be involved as a substitute in this match.

England possible line-up: Pickford, Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Phillips, Foden, Saka, Sterling, Kane

Iran possible line-up: Beiranvand, Moharrami, Pouraliganji, Hosseini, Jalali, Nourollahi, Hajsafi, Ezatolahi, Jahanbakhsh, Amiri, Taremi
