Both the teams don’t have a good history in World cup. The other two teams in the group are Spain and Portugal which are much superior in terms of quality.
Morocco topped a group in 1986 FIFA World Cup despite having teams like England, Poland, and Portugal against it while Iran never made it to last-16. Atlas lion’s Nabil Dirar is expected to start against Iran. The coach had not allowed him to play the friendly match against Geneva as he wanted to make sure that his top player is fit before the tournament starts.
