England vs Iran FIFA 2022 Match Results

In the opening Group B game of the Qatar World Cup, England defeated Iran 6-2 with goals from 5 different scorers.

England officially announced their arrival in the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Bukayo Saka scored two goals for the Three Lions, while Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, Jude Bellingham, and Marcus Rashford each netted one. Mehdi Taremi scored both goals for Iran.

Jude Bellingham scored the game’s first goal with a strong header, followed by Bukayo Saka scoring the second and Raheem Sterling adding the third right before halftime.

Saka scored again for the Three Lions in the second half, and replacements Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish finished off the rout. Mehdi Taremi’s two consolation goals and Harry Maguire’s forced departure due to a head injury were the only minor downsides.

But with the Three Lions taking a significant step toward the World Cup knockout rounds ahead of matches against the USA and Wales, Gareth Southgate won’t have many complaints.
