VIDEO : #Russia2018 World Cup : Iran vs Spain 0-1 || WATCH Match Highlights



Diego Costa struck again for Spain to seal a 1-0 win over World Cup Group C opponents Iran, who were denied an equaliser by VAR.

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 shin and into the net.

Iran thought they had levelled things up 10 minutes later, but Saeid Ezatolahi’s goal was ruled out by VAR for offside after he had wheeled away in celebration.
