Kieran Trippier Gets Start For England Against Iran



Kieran Trippier is in Gareth Southgate’s starting eleven, and gets front billing, as England get their World Cup started against Iran. Nick Pope and Callum Wilson are on the bench.

This is Trippier’s 38th cap for England as he gets the nod at right-back. The 32-year-old has been in top form for Newcastle this term with 17 appearances, 1 goal, and 4 assists across all competitions.

England are in Group B along with the United States and Wales, who play each other later today. In between the Group B matches, Senegal (without injured star Sadio Mane) face The Netherlands in the remaining Group A match.

Yesterday, the World Cup got underway as Ecuador soundly defeated hosts Qatar 2-0 through a brace by former West Ham and Everton forward Enner Valencia. The 33-year-old, who currently plays for Fenerbahce, tops the Turkish Super Lig with 13 goals.

    yep TFB, does not really matter if Trips goes off though as like in FPL virtually everyone has picked him.

    Shame for Wilson not getting on the pitch with the Maguire concern, he will get his chance at some point in the tournament hopefully

    I thought that TFB but it is wrong, Google Khalifa International Stadium capacity and it is 45K. Commentator must have got his stadiums mixed up and didn’t bother to use his eyes to see if it looks 1/3rd empty.

    I’ve only watched the last 20mins, but England don’t seem to use Trippier going forward at all do they l? They never seem to pass to him when he makes runs.

    Very good solid professional start by England, yes Iran are absolutely abysmal but it matters not as you can only play the opposition before you, i see this world cup very open as i think there are no outstanding international teams in the world at the moment so from that perspective England have as good a chance as any of lifting the world cup. Jesus it was hard for me to say that 😀 😀 😀

    Is it bad form to wish one of the Iranian players would kick Grealish up in the air.
    I fcuking hate that low sock wearing mother F’er.

    Misinformation from the commentator. You’d think as part of your prep for your days graft you’d get info like that squared away for your viewers 😆
