Iran vs Spain, World Cup 2018

June 18

If you are a football fan and following the World Cup matches or the sport news,

Iran's victory over Morocco, their first at a World Cup finals since 1998 and only their second in five tournaments, means they head Group B.

Spain were left frustrated after they conceded a free-kick against Portugal in their campaign opener, scored by none other than Cristiano Ronaldo late into regular time in a 3-3 draw.
