England vs Iran LIVE: Saka and Mount start, FA statement on OneLove, goal updateHello and welcome to live coverage of England's World Cup opener against Iran! Gareth Southgate will be hoping his side can get off to a perfect start in Qatar when they face Carlos Queiroz's men at the Khalifa International Stadium. With USA and Wales also in Group B, it's vital the Three Lions start the tournament with three points. England will be hoping to go one step further than they did at Euro 2020, where they were beaten on penalties by Italy in the final. Of course, Southgate's side also reached the semi-finals at the World Cup in 2018, only for Croatia to break fans' hearts in extra time.
As national federations, we can’t put our players in a position where they could face sporting sanctions including bookings, so we have asked the captains not to attempt to wear the armbands in Fifa World Cup games. "We were prepared to pay fines that would normally apply to breaches of kit regulations and had a strong commitment to wearing the armband. However, we cannot put our players in the situation where they might be booked or even forced to leave the field of play. "We are very frustrated by the Fifa decision which we believe is unprecedented – we wrote to Fifa in September informing them of our wish to wear the One Love armband to actively support inclusion in football, and had no response. Our players and coaches are disappointed – they are strong supporters of inclusion and will show support in other ways.
Striker Harry Kane is also backed close at 7/1 to win the Golden Boot, the favourite above France's Kylian Mbappe. For today, England are clear favourites to defeat Iran. Betfair have backed Southgate's men at 10/3 to defeat Carlos Queiroz's side, with Iran 10/1 to spring a shock win.

However, the final decision lies with Southgate and his track record in his previous two major tournaments warrants complete trust in his squad selection. England reached the 2018 World Cup semi-finals before finishing as runners-up in the European Championship three years later.
