England got their campaign under way with a 6-2 victory over Iran, before playing out a 0-0 goalless draw with USA in their second group game.

The BBC landed two of England's three World Cup group matches, including the fixture against Iran on Monday, the second day of the tournament. The BBC also secured the rights to broadcast the opening ceremony, however their coverage on BBC One focused on unpacking the controversy around hosting the tournament in Qatar.

In the latest share between free-to-air broadcasters, ITV screened the second match on Friday against USA, and will potentially show the last 16 and quarter-final.

Terrestrial channels have negotiated a share over coverage for major tournaments between themselves for more than 50 years and ITV are said to have had first pick this year.

The group stage England tie against Wales will be on the BBC but the corporation would then be waiting until the semi-final to screen another potential Three Lions match. ITV also had coverage of the USA’s 1-1 draw with Wales on November 21.

The BBC also has Spain against Germany on November 27.

After Iran, England failed to beat USA in a World Cup finals match at the third third time of asking, after a shock defeat in 1950 and a draw at the 2010 finals in South Africa.

England’s third game against the winner of the delayed European play-off gets under way at 7pm (GMT) on November 29.
