World Cup 2022 – England vs Iran: Date, TV channel, live stream and kick-off time for Three Lions’ first Qatar clash

ENGLAND begin their 2022 World Cup campaign with a clash against unfancied Group B opponents Iran later this month.

The Three Lions’ last World Cup campaign ended in agony as they lost 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-finals of the 2018 edition in Russia.

But four years on from then, and with a Euro 2020 final appearance in the bag too, Gareth Southgate‘s men are looking to finally overcome the very last hurdle.

It’s been 56 years since England won their first and only World Cup, and expectations of the team continue to grow every four years.

Iran will be their first test, before further group stage clashes with rivals Wales and 2010 World Cup group rivals USA.

This tournament could be make or break for Southgate, who may view the Qatar showpiece as his last opportunity to finally win major silverware as England boss.
