England vs Iran Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips 21/11/2022

The Top Two Tips for England vs Iran

England are one of the favourites to go all the way and win the 2022 World Cup and following the success of their Euro 2020 campaign, the pressure is on Southgate to finally end the nation's 54-year-long wait for a major international trophy. Iran make their sixth appearance at the World Cup and will be hoping to make it out of the group stage for the first time in their history.

England to Win-to-Nil

England are big favourites to beat Iran in the opening game of Group B and we're backing Southgate's men to keep a clean sheet in the process. England performed really well at Euro 2020 and a lot is expected of them in Qatar, providing they can adapt to the intense heat. On paper, England should dominate this game but we have seen big teams struggle in the early stages of the World Cup before. However, the English have a strong defence that kept five clean sheets in Euro 2020 and they go up against an Iran side that only have a handful of players that ply their trade in the top five European leagues.

Harry Kane to Score First

There will be plenty of Pressure on England's captain, Harry Kane, to score the goals required to take his country through to the latter stages of the World Cup and we're backing the prolific goalscorer to find the back of the net first against Iran on Monday. As things stand, Kane has scored a whopping 50-goals in 73-caps for England, four of which he scored at Euro 2020. The Iranian defence are going to find it tough stopping one of Europe's top strikers from open play and they can't afford to give away a spot-kick as Kane is a master from 12-yards out.

England Expects! Can Iran upset the odds?

England

The English have made it to every World Cup since France 98 but never before have they been so fancied to actually challenge for the trophy itself. In the last World Cup, Russia 2018, England finished 4th, their best finish since Italia 90. However, the last time they played in a hot climate, Brazil 2014, Roy Hodgson's side failed to make it out of the group stage, losing two and drawing one of their three matches. Southgate is under some pressure due to England's poor performance in the Nations League but certainly has the quality in his squad to go all the way in Qatar.

Iran

Nobody is expecting Iran to make it out of Group B but if they can shock the world by claiming as little as a point against the English then people might start to believe they have what it takes to make it to the knockout stage. Azmoun, Ansarifard, Taremi and Jahanbakhsh have all scored plenty of goals for their country, but can they do it against the big boys? That is the big question,
