Portugal and Spain drew 3-3 in their tournament opener last week. Whatever you've got planned for Monday night, cancel it.

But after half-time Spain did a better job of keeping the width, and the goal, scored on 55 minutes when Ramin Rezaeian poked the ball against Diego Costa, had been coming.

Patience is a virtue, and Spain showed plenty of it to overcome a tough challenge from Iran at the World Cup. After some confusion, VAR was consulted, upheld the original decision, and play eventually resumed.

Carlos Queiroz's Iran side had gone close through Karim Ansarifard and Mehdi Taremi before the crucial offside call and their endeavour throughout seemed to endear them to the crowd at the Kazan Arena.

What does Lucas Vazquez do? .

Many expected Spain to score more goals, but the European giant failed to spark, despite having 78 ball possessions and 18 shot with six of hem on target.

Spain's frustration was in danger of boiling over shortly before the interval when Costa got involved in an unnecessary spat with Beiranvand, although referee Cunha opted not to punish the combative striker. Subs: Mohammadi 6, Jahanbakhsh 6, Ghoddos 6.

Spain: De Gea; Nacho, Pique, Ramos, Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Silva; Vazquez, Costa, Isco. Subs: Koke 6, Asensio 6, Rodrigo 6.

DF Dani Carvajal, 6 - Starting his first game of any kind since the May 26 Champions League final, Carvajal looked sharp from the off and proved his fitness, although he was rarely involved going forward.

29th minute, CHANCE: The City ace does well to get decent contact on the ball, hooking over the bar in a crowded penalty box.

CHANCES TO BREAK IRAN'S RESOLVE: With five attempts in the first-half, all of differing difficulty, you would have expected one of those to find the back of the net. A classic Costa finish!

La Roja managed to keep Iran out at the back in the closing stages to claim a hard fought 1-0 win.

Much of the build-up to this match was focused on an apparent lack of unity in the Spain side, following on from Julen Lopetegui's shock sacking last week, although Iniesta insisted such reports were nonsense in his pre-match news conference.

Another added: "It truly feels like a World Cup now Roy Keane has ripped into a former coach".
