Iran started the second round of fixtures top of Group B having beaten Morocco in their opening game, while Spain needed a win after a thrilling 3-3 tie with Portugal.

In the 54th minute, Spain broke through Iran's defensive wall to win 1-0 and avoid the precarious position of possibly missing the knockout stage of its second consecutive World Cup.

With Portugal winning their match against Morocco earlier in the day, Iran were well aware that every point matters heavily as teams eye a spot in the round of 16.

When the first half ended, Spain had 73% of the possession and completed four times as many passes as Iran.

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz did not reveal the identity of the person, who felt ill after referee Andres Cunha disallowed Saeid Ezatolahi's goal.

Moments later, the stadium erupted when Ezatolahi fired through a packed Spain area to beat De Gea but the assistant referee's flag was up.
