Spain beat Iran 1-0 with Costa's third goal of World Cup

WORLD CUP 2018 By Mirror | June 20th 2018

Fernando Hierro's side have struggled to break down Iran, who have set up with 11 men behind the ball for most of the game.

David Silva has had the best chance of the game: swivelling 10 yards out but skying his volley over the bar.

Isco and Andres Iniesta's magic has probed the Iran defence, but a series of last ditch tackles have been enough to keep the game goalless at the Kazan Arena.


Spain finally broke through when Diego Costa scored without much knowledge of the situation as Ramin Rezaeian deflected his clearance off the Atletico Madrid star.

Iran thought they had equalised soon after though, with Saeid Ezatolahi blasting home from close range, only for VAR to correctly chalk it off for offside.
