World Cup 2018: How to Watch Iran vs. Spain

Spain were camped in the Iran half for the most part of the opening 30 minutes, but they struggled to find openings in the final third.

Spain will end their Group B campaign against eliminated Morocco on Monday, while Iran face Portugal, where only a win would be enough to secure them a place in the round of 16.

The FIFA World Cup 2018 Match-20 between Iran vs Spain is going to be played on 20th June 2018.

Nacho scored a stunning goal in a 3-3 draw with Portugal last week but also conceded a penalty that Cristiano Ronaldo converted on his way to a hat-trick.

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.

Iran equalized the match in the 64th minute but Saeid Ezatolahi's goal was disallowed after VAR rueled it offside.

Spain managed to walk away with three points against Iran, but the FC crew explain how Iran managed to disrupt La Roja. However, highlights showed that Costa didn't step on his opponent's feet and probably all that was play-acting in order to waste time. Any concerns about turmoil on the Spanish squad were laid to rest following the coaching change that occurred just before the World Cup began.

The Iranians are trying their level best to get the ball in their possession, trying to score a goal.

After an exhilarating first six days, the seventh day of the World Cup will see some of the biggest players in action.

But while lady luck smiled on Spain, the same was not to be said for Iran, whose efforts went unrewarded - Spain left breathing a collective sigh of relief on a day they were far from "Supermen".

Goal! Diego Costa opens the scoring for Spain with a lovely finish!

Diego Costa scored a fine brace in the opener and is likely to start again against Iran. Live streaming is available on Fox Sports Go, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscription, either online or through their app.

"After so many years in this business, the first game of a World Cup is always hard and tough and this was no different - but it was also lovely", Iran coach Queiroz said of the country's second-ever World Cup win. In fact, the manner of their return to the pitch for the second half - with players closely grouped together and patting each other on the back - gave every indication they were just as united as ever.
