Contrastingly, England were beaten 1-0 by Italy in Milan, while USA suffered a 2-0 defeat to Japan.

Meanwhile on Thursday, Wales were turned over 2-1 by Belgium.

Posting the four results on social media, one Iran fan simply reacted: “Boom!”

While another added: “Iran are actually getting out of that World Cup group now!”

A third said: “Iran might be the World Cup’s dark horse.”

While a fourth jokingly quipped: “Iran going to the World Cup. Can’t say the same about [Erling] Haaland.”

Iran boss Queiroz praised his side’s performance on social media after their impressive victory over Uruguay.

Speaking on Twitter, he said: “Well done lads. Team cohesion with all playing the game with a winning mentality.


“We must use what we learn in this game to improve our football, always trying to be better.”

England have not won in five matches, scoring just one goal since their last victory over Ivory Coast in March.

USA have won just one in four – failing to beat Uruguay, El Salvador and Japan.

And Wales are also on a four-match winless streak following two games against Belgium and two against Netherlands.

Iran take on Senegal in their final friendly match before the World Cup on Tuesday.

They then kick off their World Cup campaign against England on November 21, before facing Wales on November 25 and USA on November 29.
