England vs Iran - Kick-off time, TV channel and live stream
England begin their World Cup 2022 campaign with a Group B encounter against Iran on Monday.
The Three Lions will start their first ever competitive fixture with the Iranians as favourites and will be confident of the three points ahead of tougher assignments against USA and Wales.
Iran are managed by former Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz, who is managing the nation for the third time in a World Cup.
The Portuguese veteran has made the Iranians a dogged team to play against in recent years and they boast a number of dangerous players in the forward areas such as Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Sardar Azmoun, and Mehdi Taremi.
Here is everything you need to know about England’s match with Iran.
What time does England vs Iran start?
England’s opening game of the World Cup against Iran will take place on Monday, November 21 at 1pm.
The match will be staged at the 45,000-capacity Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.
The stadium is the oldest venue in use at the tournament having opened in 1976.
How to watch on TV and live stream
The game will be shown live on BBC One, with coverage getting underway from 12pm.
The clash with the Iranians will also be available to live stream on BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website.
How to listen on radio
Both BBC Radio 5 Live and talkSPORT will have live radio coverage of the match in the UK.
What is the England team news?
Kyle Walker is a doubt for the Iran game having not played since undergoing groin surgery on the injury picked up in the Manchester derby on October 2.
However, the 32 year-old has been taking part in training at England’s Al Wakrah Sports Complex and is hopeful of being fit enough to play some role in the Three Lions’ second group match against the USA on November 25.
Walker said: ‘I think the first game [Iran] is probably too short, but from then onwards I’ll be good and ready to go.’
Meanwhile, James Maddison has not trained properly since arriving in Qatar after picking up a slight knee injury in Leicester’s final match before the World Cup and is a doubt for England’s opener in Doha.
