England are set to begin their 2022 World Cup run from Group B with a clash against Iran at the Khalifa International Stadium on Monday.

The Three Lions have endured a frustrating wait for more World Cup glory since winning the title in 1966 and head into the game on the back of a winless Nations League campaign, which included a 3-3 draw against Germany.

Meanwhile, Iran have entered the finals for the third time in a row but are yet to make it past the group stage, and will also be underdogs against Wales and the USMNT in Group B this time around.

James Maddison is a huge doubt after missing England's final training ahead of the Iran encounter. He is set to join Kyle Walker on the sidelines, with Kieran Trippier in line to replace Walker in the XI.

Southgate might be tempted to start with Jude Bellingham over Kalvin Phillips alongside Declan Rice in midfield, with the Manchester City midfielder lacking match sharpness after surgery on his shoulder.
