What a performance from England? ENGLAND have thrashed Iran 6-2 to record their biggest World Cup opening game win.
Teen star Jude Bellingham opened the scoring to head England in front for his first international goal before Bukayo Saka notched twice either side of a Raheem Sterling strike.
Super subs Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish then ran in England’s fifth and sixth before Iran notched a 103rd minute penalty.
Saka and Bellingham were both outstanding throughout, causing numerous problems for Iran with their creativity.
Rashford and Grealish were also quick to make an impact when they came off the bench, along with Wilson who unselfishly claimed the assist for the sixth goal.
