England were cruising the match. It took a while for them to break Iran’s defense. But slowly England found their rhythm and scored their first of the tournament at 35th minute of the match.

Saka played brilliantly in this match. He scored one goal and was involved in most of the attacks of England. England coach Gareth Southgate will be pleased to see his players’ performance.

It was overall clinical performance from England. Their substitute also played a vital role in this thrilling win. The England camp will be very happy with this triumph. iran must reconsider their tactics and must find a way out very soon.
