Iranian National Team

Iran National team is currently second in the Group B table after two matches.

Iran had a pretty lousy start after losing 6-2 against England. Goals from Jude Bellingham and Raheem sterling, a brace from Bukayo Saka, and a goal each from Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish were enough to beat Iran. Taremi scored the two consolation goals for Iran in the first match of the group stage.

The Iranians won their first 2022 World Cup in the second game by beating Wales 2-0 to go second on the group B table.

The biggest asset for Iran Is its defensive organization. Besides the game against England, Iran has not conceded so many goals; they will use this advantage when they play the United States of America in their third game. Whoever wins this game will qualify for the knockout stage of the competition.

Iran will depend on their top players like Mehdi Taremi and Sardar Azmoun to enable them to qualify for the Round of 16 of the World Cup 2022.
