England (4-3-3)

Pickford, Jordan (GK) Sardar Azmoun made a fantastic save, although he was disappointed not to have kept the score clean. 6

John Trippie Kieran Trippierr (RB) Even though Reece James isn't here, he is still a solid presence. 7

Mr. Stones (CB) When Mehdi Taremi scored, the danger was poorly perceived. It was unfortunate to give up a soft penalty in extra time. 7

Harry Maguire (CB) Decent distribution and an assist but caught out for Iran’s goal. Was struggling with an injury. 7 

Luke Shaw (LB) His return to form is timely. He provided a fine cross for England’s opening goal. 8 

Declan Rice (CM) The West Ham captain helped England maintain control. Disciplined in midfield and set the tempo. 7
