Meanwhile, Spain opened the 2018 World Cup with an exciting game against Portugal last Friday.

Iran equalized the match in the 64th minute but Saeid Ezatolahi's goal was disallowed after VAR rueled it offside.

Subs used: Mohammadi (5), Jahanbakhsh (4), Ghoddos (n/a).

Subs used: Koke (4), Asensio (4), Rodrigo (n/a).

Named the man of the match, Costa took umbrage when he was asked why he played aggressively.

Cristiano Ronaldo headed home to claim a 1-0 win for Portugal over Morocco and later Spain found the back of the net to beat Iran 1-0, as the two European football heavyweights continued their dogged rivalry with a share of points to be tied at the top of their group on Wednesday (NZT Thursday).

CJ: That Iran throw-in will go down in history. From the best, David Silva hooked a tumbling volley over on the half-hour mark.

Silva had the best chance of the opening period on the half-hour mark.

David Silva sent a free kick straight into the arms of keeper Ali Beiranvand in the 25th minute for Spain's first shot on goal.

Sergio Busquets' drive from 20 yards was then parried by Beiranvand, who palmed the rebound away before Lucas Vazquez could pounce.

England team announced for opening World Cup game against Tunisia
Euro 2016 ended in humiliation for Kane and England with a loss to Iceland in the last 16, but the team has been transformed by Southgate.

Spurred on by their vociferous fans, Iran's imposing players did well to handle Spain's attacks.

Costa put Spain ahead in the 54th minute, although there was a touch of luck to the goal. "It was hard for us to create chances". That's his third goal of the World Cup!

The World Cup match between Spain and Iran will be broadcast live on FS1.

Spain is now unbeaten in 22 matches, with 15 of those wins. Any concerns about turmoil on the Spanish squad were laid to rest following the coaching change that occurred just before the World Cup began.

Striker Diego Costa did brilliantly in the box to turn his marker but his initial shot rebounded of the legs of the defender and ricocheted off his knee and into the net to give Spain a 1-0 lead. He attempted one more after his goal, which means he's attempted four overall. Cautious optimism will be the order of the day, and Iran boss Carlos Queros side will be looking for a similarly defensively strong performance against one of the favourites for the World Cup. He delivered a number of set-pieces and crosses into the area - with varying degrees of success - and continues to show his importance and quality for Spain.
