FIFA World Cup 2022 England Vs Iran Match History
The Three Lions have a wealth of expertise to draw upon as a result of their recent success in major events. During the World Cup in 2018, England made it all the way to the semifinals before losing to Croatia in extra time and being eliminated. The next year, Gareth Southgate’s team competed in the final of the European Championship, although they were ultimately defeated by Italy in a shootout. In addition, Jude Bellingham is quickly becoming a well-known name. Borussia Dortmund’s 19-year-old midfielder is a multitalented player who is capable of defending, attacking, passing, and shooting the ball.
In addition to his success in the Champions League, he is already considered to be one of the top players in the Bundesliga. With 51 goals, striker Harry Kane is the second-highest-scoring player in England’s history, trailing only Wayne Rooney by a margin of just two goals. After reaching the back of the goal six times during the most recent World Cup, Kane was named the tournament’s top scorer.
