Covering the England v Iran match can be very useful to World Cup Fantasy managers. Highlighting line-ups, key moments and standout fantasy performances can aid decisions regarding future transfers, captaincies and chip strategy.

Line-ups – England

Defender Kieran Trippier (£5m) is the most owned player in the game. Trippier’s owners will be hoping to keep a clean sheet at the very least. Striker Harry Kane (£11m) will be hoping to fire England ahead and reward his owners.


Star striker Mehdi Taremi (£7m) is in fine form for his club. Furthermore, for Porto this season Taremi has scored an impressive six goals and created five assists so far. Former Brighton midfielder Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.5m) will also be looking to cause an upset.

Key moments

  • After a clash of heads, Iran goalkeeper Ali Beiranvand (£4m) looks to be injured but is adamant he will continue. Although that was the case, several minutes later, asked to be substituted off.
  • Iran midfielder Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.5m) fouls England defender Luke Shaw (£5m) and picks up a yellow card.
  • England defender Kiean Trippier (£5m) sends in a corner which comes off centre back Harry Maguire’s (£5.5m) head and strikes the bar.
  • Left back Luke Shaw sends in a looping cross which is met by midfielder Jude Bellingham (£7.5m) and glanced into the back of the net making it 1-0 to England.
  • Harry Maguire nods down a ball from the corner which was met with a stunning half volley from midfielder Bakayo Saka (£8m) to make it 2-0,
  • Striker Harry Kane glides a ball across the opposition’s goalkeeper and is poked into the net by forward Raheem Sterling (£8.5m) putting the score at 3-0.
  • The first half finishes 3-0.
  • Bakayo Saka added to his tally after dribbling in the box and curling a shot past the left-hand side of the goalkeeper, making it 4-0.
  • Iran forward Mehdi Taremi strikes the ball off the bar and into the net to score, 4-1 England.
  • Harry Kane plays the ball into forward Marcus Rashford (£7.5m) who despite just coming on, scores to make it 5-1 to England.
  • Harry Kane is substituted off on the 75th minute but is replaced by forward Callum Wilson (£7m).
  • Callum Wilson got into a fantastic position, despite that, he squared it to midfielder Jack Grealish who slid the ball into the net to make it 6-1.
  • Iran earned a penalty which was put away by Taremi despite this the loss was still heavy because the game finished 6-2.

Standout World Cup Fantasy performances

  • Harry Kane was one of the standout performers. Kane provided two of the assists to help England win.
  • Bukayo Saka was the biggest success. Saka’s two goals helped him reach a double-digit haul.
  • Another big performance came from Jude Bellingham after his goal.
  • Iran’s Taremi scored two goals. His goals put him on double points.

@FPLReaction’s comments

England were rampant offensively and Saka stole the show for me. Iran forward Taremi could also be an interesting option as his fixtures improve.
