The match kicks off this afternoon at 1pm, read on for a full break down of how to watch an England vs Iran live stream and get the World Cup 2022 game from anywhere.

England are winless in their last six matches after a massively disappointing UEFA Nations League campaign, but there nevertheless remains plenty of optimism that another deep run in a tournament is on the cards. Skipper and star striker Harry Kane arrives in Qatar in good form and a potentially kind route through the knock out stages awaits, should they reach them.

Managed by Alex Ferguson’s former No.2 at Man United Carlos Queiroz, Iran will be looking to make it past the group stage at a World Cup for the first time.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Sardar Azmoun and Porto’s Mehdi Taremi are expected to lead the line for the Iranians who will come into Monday’s game determined to create a positive story amid political turmoil in their home country.

It’s set to be a scorcher in Doha, with temperatures set to rise to 28 degrees time and humidity levels expected to be around 55% within the stadium come kick-off time.

Will Gareth Southgate’s men be able to stand the heat and lay down a marker and start the tournament with a convincing win today? Or will Iran pull off a massive World Cup shock? Read our guide on how to watch a England vs Iran live stream, including what TV channels and services you’ll need – and make sure you know how to watch Qatar World Cup 2022 on your games console as well.

Group B kicks off in Doha as England and Iran go head-to-head

England and Iran get Group B going when they meet in Doha today. These two sides have never met in a competitive men’s international before, but both will be looking to make a winning start. Who will come out on top in the Qatar heat?

After going so close at Euro 2020 and reaching the semi-final in Russia four years ago, England are one of the favourites to lift the trophy in Qatar, so they’ll be expected to win this opening game fairly comfortably. Gareth Southgate’s side come into the tournament on a rotten run of form, though, having been relegated from their Nations League group back in September, which could give Iran hope of causing an early upset.

Iran have never managed to reach the knockouts of a World Cup, but their qualifying performance was impressive, beating South Korea to top spot in their group and scoring the joint-most goals in the AFC in the process. Carlos Queiroz’s side scraped a 1-0 win against lowly Nicaragua in their last pre-tournament warm-up game, but they’ll need to perform much better if they’re to get anything here.

England’s quest to go one better than in Euro 2020 begins later today in their first game at the 2022 World Cup against Iran.

After a rather pitiful calendar year so far, Gareth Southgate’s side are under pressure, though the kind that could easily be lifted with a convincing early win in Qatar.

This Iran side have been talked up as perhaps their best ever at a major tournament and to call manager Carlos Queiroz experienced would perhaps be doing a CV spanning 33 years and four continents a disservice.

England are ready to go. They face Iran in their first encounter of the World Cup 2022 as Gareth Southgate’s men hope to qualify out of Group B.

Their recent tournament runs under Southgate have been impressive. They reached the semi-finals of the World Cup four years ago before losing in a penalty shootout to Italy in the final of Euro 2020 – not that we need reminding of that. With a core group of players set to play a part in all three tournaments can this campaign prove to be a long hoped for success or has Southgate’s team already passed their peak?

James Maddison is a doubt for the match after training away from the rest of the squad but everyone else should be fit to go. The manager may choose to start Kalvin Phillips in midfield to test his fitness and Southgate must also decide between a solid back three or a potentially more attacking back four as England’s best formation. Today’s encounter is the first time England have ever played Iran in competitive football. Russia 2018 saw Iran record their best performance at a World Cup as they lost out on the knockout stages by just one point. The Iranians are 20th in the Fifa rankings and have an experienced squad to call on which could make this a tricky opener for the Three Lions.
