England cruised into the World Cup tournament on Monday afternoon with a decisive 6-1 defeat of Iran in their Group B opener.

A brace from Nigerian born Saka and goals from Bellingham (35’minutes), Raheem Sterling (45’+1minutes), Rashford (71’minutes) and Grealish (89′ minutes) suppressed the Iranians who were completely dominated in the match.

Proceedings ended at 3-0 at the end of first half and Iran pulled back one through Taremi in the 65th minute and pulled in another one through a penalty in the 12 minute of the extra time to make it 6-2. The penalty was awarded by the referee after the VAR drew his attention to John Stones pulling an Iranian player during a scramble in the England half in the last minute of the game.
