Meanwhile, the Iranians are competing on the biggest global stage for the third time in a row but are facing an uphill battle to finally advance beyond the group stage.

Another attempt to emulate the heroes of 1966 awaits Gareth Southgate’s young crop, and should England continue the theme of going one better at major tournaments under the 52-year-old, they might just return home with something to cheer about or even the trophy.

The Three Lions could hardly have been happier when Kieran Trippier scored that memorable free kick against Croatia in the semi-finals four years ago, and even that moment was topped when Luke Shaw netted first against Italy in the Euro 2020 final, but England ended both competitions without the winners’ medals.

Optimism is not exactly high this time around, with England entering the World Cup off the back of a winless Nations League campaign which saw them relegated to League B, having failed to score from open play until their 3-3 draw with Germany on the final matchday.

Iran will expect to be battling Wales and the USA for second place in Group be should England ride off into the sunset as expected, but they are one of a number of nations to have become involved in pre-tournament controversy.

The Ukranian FA requested the expulsion of Iran from the World Cup over allegations of the Asian nation supplying weapons to Russia for the ongoing war in Eastern Europe, but the Iranians are now preparing to compete on the finals stage for the third successive time.

However, Carlos Queiroz’s side have never progressed beyong the group stage of the World Cup in its current format.

England vs. Iran Head to head

England Team News

Right-back Kyle Walker has already admitted that Monday’s game might come too soon for him following a groin surgery, while James Maddison missed training following an injury scare last weekend.

Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips formed an effective midfield partnership at Euro 2020, but the latter’s lack of game time could deny him a starting role.
