Queiroz reveals Iran staffer taken to hospital after goal

Queiroz reveals Iran staffer taken to hospital after goal

The reason for the recent change would be Costa's three-goal return in Spain's opening two matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, where the No19 scored a brace against Portugal in Spain's Group B debut and the match-winner to take all three points from IR Iran.

"We came to this World Cup and nobody gave us a chance but we can still qualify for the second round and I think that is something we should applaud". "We were happier after the match against Portugal, but we only had one point".

Hierro said in the post-match press conference: "I think there are 32 great teams here at this World Cup and no-one is giving anything away, so anyone who thinks it is going to be very easy to score and win by a landslide is wrong".

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz was a big fan of Fernando Hierro the player.

Iran did get the ball in the net with Saeid Ezatolahi, but VAR disallowed the goal for an offside position after several very tense minutes. The only other days in World Cup history to see three 1-0 wins in a single day were June 25 1982 (3) and June 23 2010 (3).

Costa had a bust-up with Beiranvand toward the end of the first half after the Iran keeper went down in the box.

However, with just two years remaining on that deal, Real Madrid have begun sniffing around him again. "He led the way for us". Realizing he may have been taking away from his team, Ronaldo later apologized in the press conference.

Isco wasted two good chances in front of goal after some brilliant team buildup, but it now felt like a matter of when, not if, Spain would break the deadlock. On one occasion, in the 39th minute, Diego Costa objected after Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand began jumping in pain, insisting to the referee that Costa had stamped on his foot.

In fact, Spain didn't really look like scoring at all, at least until David Silva volleyed over the bar from close range in the 30th minute. "We're anxious because a member of our coaching staff has a health problem following the decision from VAR'", stated Iran's coach without giving any more details.

Despite the defeat, Iran still have plenty to play for.

Queiroz did not reveal who the staff member was, but the Portuguese insisted his side were not giving up their World Cup dreams just yet.

Spain, looking to emulate their 2010 triumph when Andres Iniesta hit an extra-time victor to deny the Netherlands in the final, now sit top of Group B before a final match against Morocco, who restricted Portugal to a 1-0 win earlier on Wednesday.

It comes two years after Federation Internationale de Football Association fined Mexico $30,000 for homophobic chants by supporters on five occasions since November 2015.
