England will kickstart their 2022 FIFA World Cup with a match against Iran. The England side has been quite decent in major events recently. They made it to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and the finals of Euro 2020.
Iran, on the other hand, cannot be taken lightly. They are at this stage for the third consecutive time and have the skillsets to force the tournament’s first upset.
