Qatar World Cup 2022, ENG vs IRN: Hottest Fantasy line-up, prediction, where to watch and more
FIFA World Cup 2022: Game 2 will see England go up against Iran on Monday. Here are the ideal Fantasy XI picks, probable XI, prediction, where to watch and further details regarding the tie.
Game 2 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will be played between former champion England against Iran at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha on Monday. While England would be desperate to succeed here, given that it is the top favourite in this tie, Iran can be unpredictable sometimes, especially against England's inconsistent defence, making Team Melli a strong contender to pull off a surprise. On the same note, we present the ideal Fantasy XI picks, probable XI, prediction, where to watch and other match details.
ENG (4-3-3): Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Mount, Rice, Bellingham; Saka, Kane, Sterling/Foden.
IRN (4-3-3): Beiranvand; Moharrami, Pouraliganji, Hosseini, Mohammadi; Ezatolahi, Nourollahi, Hajsafi; Jahanbaksh, Taremi, Amiri
He is the one that dominates over the Iranian, thanks to his extensive exposure in competitive Europe.
DEF: Shaw, Trippier, Pouraliganji and Hajsafi
While Shaw and Trippier have been consistent in England's defence, Pouraliganji and Hajsafi have played a significant role in the back for Iran qualifying for the tournament.
MID: Jahanbaksh, Amiri, Saka (vc) and Bellingham
Jahanbaksh and Amiri can hold things up in the midfield for Iran, where Saka and Bellingham are more into the attack and could come up with enormous assists for the forward line-up. Saka's consistency makes him the deputy captain.
FWD: Kane (c) and Foden
While Kane is a no-brainer for carrying the English attack on his shoulder, thus making him the skipper, Foden has been in the immense form of late and would be hard to be ruled out.
