England vs Iran
There will likely be some VERY long lunch breaks in England on Monday.
The Three Lions will look to get their 2022 World Cup campaign off to a flyer against Iran, who sit 15 places below them in FIFA’s rankings.
Despite reaching the semi-finals in Russia and losing on penalties in the European Championship final, expectations on England are surprisingly low.
That could have something to do with their recent struggles, in which they were relegated from the highest tier of the Nations League.
England are winless in their last SIX and suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Hungary at Wembley back in June.
However, they still boast an excellent record under Southgate at knockout competitions.
There’s no doubting that Carlos Queiroz’s Iran are a solid outfit, and their record in qualifying suggests as much having only conceded four goals.
But England should win the match by a single goal, in a similar fashion to their 2-1 victory over Tunisia in the last World Cup.
If you think the favourites will prevail in the group stages, why not back England, Brazil, France and Argentina all to win their first match at a whopping 50/1 with BetVictor. Claim HERE*.

Senegal vs Holland
Africa Cup of Nations champions Senegal take on Holland but will be without their main man, Sadio Mane.
The electric winger is expected to be out until March 2023 after sustaining an injury to his right fibula while playing for Bayern Munich.
That should see Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands capitalise and continue their unbeaten record in 2022 (W6, D2).
Our pick: Netherlands to make the most of Senegal’s lack of firepower with a 2-0 victory at odds of 11/2 with Betfair. New Betfair customers can back this tip and get £30 in free bets HERE*
USA vs Wales
Group B’s other contest between the US and Wales is altogether more difficult assignment to unpick.
Their pair last went head-to-head in a friendly in 2020, with the match finish in a goalless draw.
USA have the edge on recent form with Robert Page’s side having won just ONCE in their last seven in all competitions.
But Wales are made for the big occasion and could open their tournament with a win.
Our pick: Gareth Bale to shine on the world stage once again by scoring the opening goal at 5/1 with Paddy Power. New Paddy Power customers who stake £20 on football will receive their money back as CASH if they lose. Claim HERE*
