England’s World Cup opponents: What can we expect from Iran, the United States and Wales in Group B? | Football News


England are favourites to get out of their group, but a World Cup like no other raises questions of how simple this opening round of fixtures will be.

Gareth Southgate has only a week working with his players before their World Cup campaign begins on November 21 and in England’s way are three teams who can pose problems.

England, themselves ranked fifth in the world, play three teams in the top 20 including a Wales side who want to make their first World Cup finals in 64 years with a scalp over their neighbours.

With recent World Cup disappointment with the United States and an unknown entity in Iran, Sky Sports analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the three teams that await England in Group B.

Opponent One: Iran (November 21)

  • FIFA ranking: 20th
  • World Cup achievements: First round (1978), group stage (1998, 2006, 2014, 2018)
England will start their World Cup campaign against Iran
