Spain Face Buoyant Iran

Spain Face Buoyant Iran

The win sees Spain move level on points with Portugal in Group B, while Iran and Morocco are third and fourth respectively. The game against Iran will be interesting as Spain need to win this match if they want to keep their World Cup journey alive and a draw will be a troublesome result.

Despite the frustration of conceding an 88th-minute equaliser to Ronaldo following two goals from Diego Costa and a stunning strike from Nacho, Isco believes Spain's resolve remains intact.

Saied Ezatolahi thought he'd equalised midway through the second half but, to Spain's relief, the goal was chalked off for offside.

Queiroz's troops continued to threaten as the second half went on, with Mehdi Taremi heading over the crossbar at the far post on 81 minutes.

Spain will face Morroco in their final group stage game on Monday, June 25 while Iran will face Portugal on the same day. Pouraliganji is a threat from set-pieces and could be an outlet of Iran as they are pushed back by the possession game of Spain.

CJ: That Iran throw-in will go down in history.

Steam Announces 'Steam Chat' Client to Improve On-Platform Communication
Voice chat has also been rebuilt from the ground up, with Valve saying it now sounds a lot cleaner than it did before. Whether that is enough to convince users to skip third-party chat clients to go back to Steam remains to be seen.

But after half-time Spain did a better job of keeping the width, and the goal, scored on 55 minutes when Ramin Rezaeian poked the ball against Diego Costa, had been coming.

Former Ireland midfielder Roy Keane looked suitably unimpressed when ex-West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said that he had sympathy for Spain following their 1-0 win over Iran on Wednesday.

Where is FIFA World Cup 2018 Iran vs Spain match being played? On the other hand, Spain coach Fernando Hierro confirmed that David De Gea will continue as goalkeeper against Iran, despite failing to stop Ronaldo from scoring a hat trick in their opening game. The Atletico Madrid striker showed his individual class and poaching instincts with both goals and will be charged with breaking the deadlock against a mean Iranian defence.

Spurred on by their vociferous fans, Iran's imposing players did well to handle Spain's attacks.

It promises to be an interesting game as Iran and Spain meet for the first ever time.
