Iran vs Spain 0-1 Highlights 20 June 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia 2018

VAR denies Iran shock equaliser as Spain escape with 1-0 win.

KAZAN, Russia -- A scrappy second-half goal by Diego Costa broke Iran's stonewall and lifted Spain to a 1-0 win in a nerve-jangling World Cup clash on Wednesday.

Costa claimed his third goal of the tournament in the 54th minute at Kazan Arena but the striker hardly knew about it, the ball deflecting off his legs from an attempted clearance by hapless Iran defender Ramin Rezaeian.

The result left Spain joint top of their group with Portugal on four points, with Iran close behind on three going into the third and final set of games. After two defeats, Morocco are out.
