2018 FIFA WC: Spain beat Iran 1-0 in tight Group B

Kazan, Russia (PANA) - Diego Costa's 54th minute goal gave Spain a 1-0 victory over Iran on Wednesday in their second Group B match at the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the Kazan Arena, giving three countries an opportunity to advance to the knock-out stage.

Costa scored when his shot bounced off Iranian Ramnin Rezaeian and was then deflected back off him into the net.

Iran thought they had found the equaliser in the 62nd minute through Saeid Ezatolahi, but it was ruled offside by the VAR.

With Portugal beating Morocco 1-0 in the first Group B match for the day, Portugal and Spain have 4 points each while Iran have 3 points. Morocco who have no point will play Spain in the final group match while Portugal play Iran.
