In their most recent match, Iran played against England on Monday, with the final score of the game being a heavy 6:2 defeat. Before the last encounter, the team was on an unbeaten streak of three games, recording one draw and two wins. The nations involved in Iran’s latest ten clashes benefited from playing at their own stadium, as proven by the seven home wins compared to the two home losses. The result was a draw in just one of the team’s most recent 10 games. Two of Iran’s last five matches featured over 2.5 goals, with three featuring goals at both ends of the field. Iran’s defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in two of these meetings, and they scored on their own at least once in all of those. There were a total of 15 goals scored across the team’s five most recent games.
