England vs Iran betting tips

England vs Iran betting tips and predictions for their first match of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. With the World Cup’s first winter tournament set to get underway on November 20th when Qatar meet Ecuador, England will have to wait another 24 hours before they kick-off their Group B campaign.

As football fans from across the globe brace themselves for a month of wall-to-wall international action, Gareth Southgate’s men will be desperate to shake off their pre-tournament rut and lay down an early marker.

With many still believing that the Three Lions are among the leading contenders to claim a first piece of international silverware since 1966, England will open their World Cup adventure when they face off against Iran at the Khalifa International Stadium on Monday, November 21st and you can see our England vs Iran betting preview below including betting tips for the big match on day 2 of the World Cup.

Hoping to avoid what would be an infamous banana skin in Doha, England will know that they have the eyes of a nation firmly fixed on them.


England vs Iran Betting Preview 

England’s odds to beat Iran are 3/10 with bet365 and not many people would seriously bet against Gareth Southgate’s side getting off to a winning start in Qatar. However, upsets do happen and the odds for Iran to beat England are 11/1 with Coral.

If you think England will be held to a draw in their opening World Cup 2022 match then you’ll get odds of 4/1 with Bet UK for the points to be shared.

Although England might still find themselves tipped as a standout pick to cruise their way out of Group B this year, it is no secret that Southgate’s side make the trip out to Qatar in the midst of what has been a worrying blip.

Left heartbroken at Wembley 16 months ago as they had to watch Italy lift their second European crown, the Three Lions endured a real nightmare during their Nations League campaign.

Remarkably failing to win any of their six League A appearances and losing their elite Nations League status, England also open their World Cup adventure after enduring their longest winless run since 1993.

However, while Southgate might find a huge amount of pressure on his shoulders and coming under scrutiny for his pragmatic approach, the European giants are still regarded to be among the leading contenders to claim a first international trophy in 56 years and our England v Iran prediction says they’ll get off to a winning start in Qatar.

Reaching the semi-finals in Russia four years ago before slumping to an extra-time defeat at the hands of Croatia, England will be desperate to go one step further this time around.

Although Iran might know that they need a minor miracle if they’re to find a shock route out of Group B this year, Carlos Queiroz’s men should open their Qatar adventure with the mood in their camp at a high.

Punching their World Cup ticket without breaking much of a sweat after mustering 25 points from their 10 qualifying appearances, the one-time Manchester United coach has also seen his side suffer just a pair of defeats across all competitions since November 2019.

Picking up some perfect momentum during September’s international break as they clinched a stellar 1-0 win against South American giants Uruguay in Austria, Iran have also continued to show some real defensive resolve under Queiroz.

Despite facing a huge task when they open their Group B run on November 21st, Iran do have plenty of European-based stars in their ranks.

Alongside Porto’s red-hot striker Mehdi Taremi and Bayer Leverkusen ace Sardar Azmoun, Queiroz also has the likes of Brentford’s Saman Ghoddos and ex-Brighton man Alireza Jahanbakhsh at his disposal in the Middle East.


England vs Iran Predictions

Although England might have endured a rather public struggle heading into this year’s World Cup, Southgate’s superstars should be confident of laying down an early Group B marker in Doha.

Still tipped as a team who could win the World Cup, and with a squad that includes a host of heavyweight options, the Three Lions will know that they must avoid a major upset when they open their World Cup adventure on November 21st.

Although Iran could prove to be a tougher test than some might believe, Queiroz will know that his side faces a monumental challenge at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Two nations who are expected to find themselves at opposite ends of the Group B table come December, England couldn’t have asked for a better start to their winter campaign.

Our England vs Iran prediction is for England to win the match without conceding a goal. 

You can bet on this using the ‘To Win To Nil’ market and at the time of writing, the best odds for England to win to nil against Iran are 5/6 with BetVictor. For this prediction to be a winning one on England v Iran, it doesn’t matter how many goals England score as long as they win the match and Iran DO NOT score a goal.

If you are looking for an England vs Iran score prediction then England to win 3-0 would be our betting tip. Southgate’s side will want to get off to a good start in Group B but Iran are likely to sit back and frustrate the likes of


England Star Player

Although Southgate might have a string of Premier League-based superstars in his ranks this winter, there is no doubt that Harry Kane will play a vital role in England’s charge for glory.

Helping Tottenham eventually book their spot in the knockout stage of this season’s Champions League, the Three Lions’ skipper has enjoyed quite the free-scoring run since opening the 2022/23 campaign.

While Manchester City’s Erling Haaland might have stolen most of the headlines since arriving in England, Kane himself has enjoyed his most fruitful start to a Premier League campaign.

Along with being crowned the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner four years ago, the 29-year-old has already notched 10 domestic strikes from his opening 13 appearances.


Iran Star Player

If Iran are to spring what would be a major Group B upset this year, Queiroz will be calling on his attacking talisman to spearhead their charge in Qatar.

Once again finding the net on November 1st as Porto clinched a famous 2-1 victory against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, Taremi has enjoyed a remarkable run of form this season.

Playing a crucial role as Porto shockingly booked their Champions League knockout stage ticket as group winners, the 30-year-old has received a string of plaudits from across Portugal prior to this year’s World Cup.

Bagging five Champions League strikes in as many appearances, Taremi also notched 20 Primeira Liga goals last season on route to lifting Porto’s Golden Boot.
