Team News


Among major injury concerns for England is Kyle Walker who is recovering from a groin injury. On the other hand, James Maddison too decided to skip training in a move that was said to be in view of his workload after a bit of an injury scare. With Walker missing out, it is expected that Kieran Trippier could get a game. It is likely that Gareth Southgate might go ahead with Jude Bellingham especially with Kalvin Phillips having lesser game time behind him.

Predicted Line-up:

Pickford, Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Bellingham, Sterling, Mount, Foden, Kane

As far as Iran are concerned, Omid Ebrahimi is all set to miss out from the team owing to a groin injury. Sardar Azmoun has been named as part of the squad but did sustain a calf muscle tear last month so might not be among the favourites to start this game. A lot of Iran's goal-scoring responsibilities will rest on Mehdi Taremi who is likely to be assisted by Alireza Jahanbakhsh in the job. Saman Ghoddos may have to warm the benches for now.

Predicted Line-up:

Beiranvand, Moharrami, Pouraliganji, Hosseini, Mohammedi, Nourollahi, Ezatolahi, Hajsafi, Jahanbakhsh, Taremi, Amiri

Score Prediction:



England should be able to put up a clinical performance against Iran. While Iran has quality at this level, England before kickoff can prove to be an unsurmountable challenge for them. The Three Lions are favourites to bag 3 points from this match and any other result will mean Iran would be the happier side of the two.
