Iran coach Carlos Queiroz reacts during the match against Spain in Kazan June 21, 2018. "We know it will be hard against Portugal but we don't come here expecting easy things".

Meanwhile, Spain will be confident in their chances of progressing as they sit joint-top of Group B alongside the Portuguese, with one more game to come against already-eliminated Morocco.

Providing comic relief in tense circumstances was none other than Iran's Milad Mohammadi, who gave the world a reason to cringe when, following a late throw-in, he kissed the ball before boldly performing a classic somersault throw-in technique - only to think twice at the last hurdle.

'There's no doubt Spain play wonderful, stylish football but we deserved more for the way we played.

70th minute, CORNER AND FLICK: Straight from the training ground, a lovely routine sees Isco roll the ball to Silva who had peeled off his man and then popped off the ball back to Sergio Ramos inside the penalty area.

Spain entered their match against Iran needing a win after they had drawn with Portugal in their opener and Portugal had beaten Morocco earlier in the day.

Rodriguez saw her man score the winning goal of the game in just the fourth minute as Portugal got off to the best possible start at the Luzhniki Stadium. "The important thing today was to win", he added.

Spain's Diego Costa (right) celebrates with teammate Isco after his side's first goal against Iran during the World Cup Group B match.

Frustrated throughout by a dogged defensive display from Iran, Costa courted first-half controversy when he walked towards the Persepolis shot-stopper as he prepared to kick out the ball.

Group B play at the 2018 World Cup resumes Wednesday when upstart Iran takes on Spain in Russian Federation.

His gesture went unpunished, and the Atletico Madrid striker required another stroke of luck on 54 minutes when his shot came off Ramin Rezaeian to beat Beiranvand after he had been sent through by Andres Iniesta.

"What game were you watching?" said Costa when probed by a Spanish journalist.

"They were provoking us, we were on the grass all the time, you can't just say that because it's your national team".
