June 20 (UPI) — Spain won a match against Iran in the group stage of 2018 FIFA World Cup Wednesday in Kazan, Russia.
Spain’s frontman Diego Costa scored the only goal in the 54th minute. That was his third goal in the tournament. He shares the second position on the list of strikers with Denis Cheryshev.
Cristiano Ronaldo is holding the first position with four goals scored.
The referee counted a goal by the Iranian halfback Sayed Ezzatollahi in the 62nd minute but used the visual assistant referee [VAR] system and canceled it, since Ezzatollahi was offside.
The Spaniards have scored four points and are sharing the first position in Group B with the Portuguese who won a game vs Morocco 1-0 earlier on Wednesday. Iran occupies the third position while the Moroccans have not scored a single point and will not get into the knockouts.
