Qatar World Cup: England fans chant 'Are you Scotland in disguise?' taunt at World Cup match against Iran

England supporters mocked Scotland with a rude chant at the England v Iran World Cup match in Qatar.

After the England squad scored for the fifth time in their match against Iran, travelling fans started singing “Are you Scotland in disguise” – teasing the Iranian team who were down by several goals. England fans have chanted the cheeky dig against Scotland before, at a Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.

England beat Iran 6-2 in the match, which was their first group game at the World Cup.
