  • World Cup Iran vs Spain as it happened Diego Costa’s goal gives La Roja 1-0 win

Not an impressive result for Spain, who didn't look almost as sharp in attack as they did in the 3-3 draw against Portugal to open the tournament. However, the deadlock was broken in the second half when Costa scored in the 54th minute to put Spain ahead.

Iran is now on the top of the points table of Group B and they are looking for a win against the former world champions to seal their spot in the round of 16. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets.

Following a thrilling 3-3 draw to Portugal on Friday, Spain will look to bounce back against an Iran side high on confidence after their late win against Morocco. Spain will control possession and territory and create enough chances for Diego Costa or one of his fellow attackers to finish.

Spurred on by their vociferous fans, Iran's imposing players did well to handle Spain's attacks. Iran provide much tamer opponents than their Iberian rivals, but the current group leaders shouldn't be taken lightly.

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz has had to reshuffle his starting 11 following injury to Roozbeh Cheshmi.

Costa was accused of standing on the foot of Iran's Ali Beiranvand.

18 - Rob's Monday (Tropical Moisture flow) Morning Forecast
Tropical Storm Carlotta weakened to a depression on Sunday even as it soaked Mexico's Pacific coast in the region of Zihuatanejo. At this hour, convection is moving into coastal Texas and coastal Louisiana from the Gulf of Mexico.


Spain seemed rejuvenated after the interval, with Sergio Busquets unleashing a searing long-range strike that forced Beiranvand into a brilliant double save.

Another chance came and went some 20 minutes later, when Vahid Amiri brilliantly nutmegged Gerard Pique and sent in a cross from the left to find Taremi in the box.

It proved the only goal of an entertaining match, although Iran saw one attempt chalked off for offside with help of the VAR.

"What game were you watching", Costa replied.

Time and time again we've seen goalkeepers come off their lines time in a bid to be their team's hero and score the goal they so desperately need.
