The world cup continues to provide excitement to the excited football lovers. Earlier on Wednesday Ronaldo broke a record.
Diego Costa struck again for Spain to seal a 1-0 win over World Cup Group B opponents Iran, who had a goal disallowed for offside.
Costa, who scored twice for Spain during their 3-3 draw against Portugal on Friday, added his third goal of the tournament when Ramin Rezaeian’s clearance cannoned off the Atletico Madrid striker’s leg and into the net.
The result puts Spain top of Group B ahead of Portugal – who beat Morocco 1-0 earlier in the day Portugal 1 Vs Morocco 0 – on the ‘fair play’ rule, with both having four points and the same goal difference, but Spain receiving fewer bookings. Iran are a point behind in third and could still make the knockout stages.
Uruguay booked their place in the last 16 of the World Cup after a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia in Rostov-on-Don on Wednesday afternoon.
The victory, which also confirms Russia’s place in the knockout stage and eliminates both Saudi Arabia and Egypt, was secured through a close-range goal from Luis Suarez (23) on his 100th appearance for his country.
