Pick through the FOX sports betting analyst Jason McIntyre:
England come as heavy favorites in this match and to win the tournament.
The pressure on this squad will be the greatest since David Beckham patrolled the midfield. Can prolific goalscorer Harry Kane carry this team?
England are struggling with some injuries – Kalvin Phillips, Kyle Walker – and I hope they look forward against an inferior Iran team. A flat performance here from the Three Lions with the USMNT close doesn’t surprise me.
