After the opening game and that insipid taste left by the duel between Qatar and Ecuador, England quenched our thirst for goals with the first win of the World Cup in their debut against Iran, whom they beat 6-2 after the Asian team lost their goalkeeper in the first minutes of the game.

Iran had to make the first World Cup goalkeeper change after the starting goalkeeper, Alireza Beiranvand, after a strong collision with one of his teammates, which apparently caused him a broken nose. In his place came Hossein Hosseini, who had to receive the win.

Another of the players who had to leave the game due to physical problems was the England defender, Harry Maguire, who after Iran’s goal, threw himself on the grass and received medical assistance for apparent dizziness.
