Costa leads Spain past Iran

Spain vs Iran

However, the deadlock was broken in the second half when Costa scored in the 54th minute to put Spain ahead.

David Silva played the ball into Diego Costa in the penalty area and he turned and sent the ball past Beiranvand. But Iran could still go through depending on the results of the final group matches.

Now tied on points and goal difference with fellow leaders Portugal, the Roja know they will have to better Ronaldo's men's result to take top spot, as the Selecao play simultaneously against Iran.

Facing a very compact Iranian team that came out to defend, Spain pressed high and controlled much of the game but found it hard to threaten against Iran's 10-man defence.

Cristiano Ronaldo headed home to claim a 1-0 win for Portugal over Morocco and later Spain found the back of the net to beat Iran 1-0, as the two European football heavyweights continued their dogged rivalry with a share of points to be tied at the top of their group on Wednesday (NZT Thursday).

The FIFA World Cup 2018 Match-20 between Iran vs Spain is going to be played at the Kazan Arena. And the defence that conceded three times against Portugal was stretched quite easily again when Iran chose to come out and attack.

Spain seemed rejuvenated after the interval, with Sergio Busquets unleashing a searing long-range strike that forced Beiranvand into a brilliant double save.

They have yet to score a goal off their own boot this tournament and fans will have torn their hair out after Mehdi Taremi headed over the bar from six yards out in the 82nd minute. The team also created a few excellent chances, including that missed header from Taremi in the 83rd minute.

The Spanish had most of the possession throughout the match but were left frustrated as Iran defended deep, keeping men behind the ball whenever Spain attacked.

"What game were you watching", Costa replied. Costa replied. "It was during the first half, they were provoking us".
