Isco kisses David De Gea's glove after Spain beat Iran

2018 FIFA World Cup | Spain confirm goalkeeper for Iran clash

Spain and Portugal are tied for second in Group B with one point each, while Iran leads the group with three points after beating Morocco 1-0 earlier Friday. Portugal and Spain drew 3-3 in their tournament opener last week.

Eight minutes into the second half, Spain broke the deadlock as a clearance by Iranian defender Ramin Rezaeian ricocheted off Costa and sailed into the back of the net, 0-1.

Spain took a short corner and after Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos headed the ball back across the face of goal from Andres Iniesta's cross, Silva went for the overhead kick at close range, but saw it fly over the crossbar.

But they all count and, while Iran could point to another hard-luck story after Saeid Ezatolahi's effort was ruled out for offside, the 2010 winners did enough to move to the brink of the knockout stage.

Iran did make a further good chance, Mehdi Taremi heading just over, but Spain - who will know and feel like they were in game - hung on.

Chris Fox: Ronaldo's hat-trick and Kane's last-minute victor have just been overshadowed by the Iran throw-in as the moment of World Cup so far. 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.


Spain celebrate a Diego Costa goal against Iran. Their service includes Fox Sports 1, Fox and Telemundo (in most markets) so you can stream the game with English or Spanish commentary.

Iran famously picked up the victory in the World Cup for the first time since 1998 against Morocco.

Another alternative to watch Iran vs Spain is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial.

Another man-of-the-match performance from the Real Madrid forward, who was once again a key part of Spain's attacking play. 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. Fubo TV also offers three days of auto recording and 30 hours of Cloud DVR service in case you're busy at work for the Spain Iran soccer game.

"A World Cup match is completely different from all others, it's incredibly lovely", he confirmed.
