How to Watch Iran vs. Spain

Iran was down 1-0 in stoppage time, when Mohammadi had to throw the ball in a little before 93 minutes and 30 seconds had been played.

But on Wednesday the Brazil-born striker was the difference-maker as La Roja finally managed to break down a superbly-drilled and fantastically courageous Iran side to win 1-0 in Kazan and put themselves on the verge of a place in the last 16.

Iran did their utmost to frustrate the 2010 world champions in a clash of styles, but Diego Costa eventually opened the scoring with a scrappy 54th-minute victor that ended up the evening's only goal.

Now, Spain and Portugal are in command of this group with one win and one draw apiece. By the time the final whistle was blown, it was a relief for Spain who had grabbed full points against a stubborn side.

He was excellent for La Roja under Julen Lopetegui and he is proving he can be just as good when playing for Fernando Hierro. "We are very happy with three points". "It's just a feeling".

"What I can say is that we have three more points".

This looks like it could be Isco's World Cup, with the Real Madrid midfielder proving to be the most effective player on the Spain team. Spain may be the favorite, but there's no reason Iran can't pull off an upset if they're able to disrupt the Spanish offense.

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz has had to reshuffle his starting 11 following injury to Roozbeh Cheshmi. Iran next faces Portugal on Monday. They have to improve - and fast.

But Isco's spot of silk is notable because it turned out to be an anomaly: this Spain performance was a sluggish, unbalanced slog. "We know we still need to improve but hopefully we will keep winning as we improve". In the 60th minute, Mehdi headed wide from a promising position off a cross from the right wing.

What does Lucas Vazquez do? .

David Silva succeeded in exerting a measure of command in a disjointed midfield, but barring a fine half-hour spell against Portugal, Spain have looked like a side that lacks spark and fluidity. "We knew it was going to be very hard and, sure enough, it was a very complex game", Hierro said during his post-match interview.

Diego Costa was the star against Portugal with a brace, but Iran are likely to be rather more compact than the European champions.
