Today Morocco and Iran will kick-off Group B with a must-win match for both teams. Each team seems to have been cursed by the draw as they were placed in arguably, the most challenging group of the tournament.

Morocco, beginning their first world cup stint in 20 years, are lead by their experienced Juventus star, Medhi Benatia. Benatia has a significant amount of experience with the highest level of club football on the planet, and will look to captain his team from the back, and force a shutout against the determined Iranian squad.

Iran will be looking to grab three points as well, lead by their striker, Sardar Azmoun, the Rubin Kazan star. Azmoun is a prominent striker in Russia’s first division and will look to put his team ahead in today’s game. This face off between each teams captain should make for a compelling match between the two nations.

Kick off begins at 11 AM EST, and is preceded by Egypt vs Uruguay at 8 AM EST, and followed by Spain vs Portugal at 2 PM EST.
