Spain beat Iran 1-0 on Costa's third goal

A frustrated Spain worldwide had a few words to say about Carlos Queiroz's Iran, criticising the former Bafana Bafana coach's team for their negative tactics in La Furja Roja's 1-0 win in Kazan on Wednesday.

For that reason, Saeid Ezatolahi's "goal" provided great relief until VAR ruled it out and extinguished Iran's hopes.

Spain's Diego Costa (19) scores in the 52nd minute of the match with Iran at the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia.

Still, Iran continued to push forward with Mehdi Taremi emerging as their likeliest source of an equaliser.

"We're more concerned because one member of our staff is in difficulties from a health point of view after the VAR decision", the former Manchester United coach said.

'He went to the hospital. Our prayers go out to him at this moment'.

Sexton is dogged on defense, which in today's National Basketball Association is important for smaller players especially. For Cleveland in this situation, they may be locked in with their preference following what they saw this past weekend.

Not every game will be like this, and most opponents are sure to show more endeavour than Iran, who utilised a similar park-the-bus approach in their 1-0 win over Morocco.

Costa, who scored twice in a 3-3 opening draw with Portugal in Sochi, courted controversy early in the Group B encounter when he stepped on the toes of Iran 'keeper Ali Beiranvand as he waited to kick the ball out.

Iran played toe-to-toe with Spain and deserved more from the match, but Spain's central defense made some important stops, got the victor in the second half and held on to move into a tie for first place with Portugal in Group B. "Football is not like this but it is fair to say we deserved a better result", said Queiroz. We lost the top spot in the group, but the reality is this: "our dream is not over", he said.

There was no doubt a goal was coming and Silva was involved in the build-up to Diego Costa's second-half victor in the 1-0 victory.

Queiroz sounded upbeat about his side's prospects against the reigning European Champions, as he likened his team's situation to a tennis match: "If you think of it like tennis, we had one match point today and we will have another against Portugal". Everything is still open.

"We can guarantee that we will keep working for our dreams, and our dream is to qualify for the second round".
