Morocco will make their first appearance at the World Cup finals for 20 years and they face Iran on their return, the first Asian country to have secured their place at the tournament from qualifying. Iran are overseen by former Manchester United assistant coach Carlos Queiroz, who served alongside Sir Alex Ferguson for many successful years. He is 9/4 with Paddy Power to secure an opening victory against a promising Morocco outfit.
Morocco vs Iran Key Player to Watch
If Iran are to achieve such a feat then they will have to deal with the threat of Morocco star Nabil Dirar. The versatile Fenerbahce midfielder was a vital component of the Monaco team that rallied to a Ligue 1 triumph in the 2016/17 season.
