It's Morocco vs. Iran for the first Group B game played in the 2018 World Cup. Drawing into a group that includes titans Portugal and Spain, the lower-ranked Morocco and Iran should be happy to play each other in their first match. 2018 marks the first time Iran has qualified for back-to-back World Cups, and they're setting their sights on getting to the knockout stage, something they've been unable to do in previous tournaments. Morocco has been absent from World Cup competitions since qualifying in 1998, though they've played well in their 2018 friendly games, winning three and tying one.
The game at Saint Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg, Russia, starts at 6 p.m. local time, or 11 a.m. Eastern (8 a.m. Pacific). You can watch it live on Fox in English, or in Spanish on Telemundo and NBC Universo through your cable company. If you don't have cable you can stream it via Hulu with Live TV, or fuboTV. fuboTV offers match day bonus feeds to bring fans closer to each game, where you can select from Match360/Tactical View, two Team Channels, a Highlight Feed, and Cable Cam.
Morocco, Iran, Portugal and Spain compete in Group B. It's expected Portugal and Spain, the two strongest teams in the group, will move on to the knockout stage beginning June 30th.
