This year’s England-Iran match will be the first-ever at this level, as the two countries have never met at senior levels before. Iran is no stranger to the World Cup Finals, having qualified for six competitions total and the two previous competitions in 2014-2018.
After beating Iraq in Tehran’s play-off, they were the first Asian Football Confederation team to qualify for the World Cup.
They had a very disruptive qualifying campaign that began under Marc Wilmots, ex-Belgian boss. He was fired and replaced by Dragan Skocic from Croatia. Skocic oversaw a turnaround in fortunes, and they finished at the top of their group.
