The central defensive optionsa and goalkeeper are entirely Iran-league based.

Your defence is impressive at what it does, I just hate the great wall, my apologies. Iran played like they did since the goal and I could get behind them.

Spain’s performance very similar to portugal’s earlier. Not great but just about doing enough.

Spain are a shambles when Iran attack them, should have done it earlier.

Have you got behind Saudi Arabia?

The way Iran have played since going behind makes their first half tactics even more bizarre.
They really could've got a shock result here, shame they waited until being behind before they started to play.

This doesn't make me scared of Spain I have to say.

Having said that, I've no doubt we'd lose against them :D

Dude, I've said before the game and during the game several times that this is what happens, even if Spain hadn't scored.

But let's pretend everything is ****.

Don't worry if we win the group we'll probably have to play Brazil in the QFs.

This tournament has been proper turgid. So many teams underperforming.

Yeah, hard to make a claim for any team winning it.

Mediocre at best so far.

I don't know why people expect anything different, it happens every tournament but people forget by the time the next one roles around. It's what international football is.

Ghoddos finally on with 8 minutes left.

My only complaint about Carlos is the late subs, but it worked against Morocco and I'm complaining about a hero who's massively overachieving.

Pre-Carlos results include drawing with Angola, losing 3-1 to Mexico and getting thrashed by Peru.

Spain have not been very convincing, yeah Iran have been decent but still Spain haven't killed it off and they've let Iran in the back a few times.

Need to improve in the future games, a much better could finish them off.

You normally see 1 or 2 teams that just ooze class, even after the first round you can already see who is well above the others.
This is just so very ordinary so far.

Dreadful refereeing! The Spain 2nd was on.

No chance, they can try but they're just rubbish.

Germany weren't far away from being knocked out by Algeria in 2014 iirc

Maybe it's the nostalgia talking but I remember some great tournaments when I was younger. USA 94 and France 98 my two favourites.

You at least expect to see a couple of teams looking strong. All the favourites have been turd so far.

Let's take our time over a throw-in.

Target remains the same for Iran: Beat Portugal and they're through. If they play in that game like they played towards the end of this game, Portugal will have real problems.

Really enjoyed that. And for all that, Iran are no worse off really than they would have been with a draw. Beat Portugal and they’re through.

I think the weaker teams have simply got a lot more organised in the last 20 years. They may not have much more talent than before but they are better conditioned, coached and capable of playing solid defensive football.

Doesn't help that nobody seems to have managed to score early yet in this tournament against a defensive minnow.

So when Iran play like how they're playing, you say you could get behind them if they played more open.

But if they did that and lost 5-0 and 3-1 as Saudi Arabia did, you'd say "they can try but they're just rubbish".

I thought the same. That or Allah is properly pissing his pants.

Best game of the WC so far. Putty Iran couldn't hold on longer, and had that goal chalked off. 

That summersault throwin was just all kinds of amazing :D

Queiroz should have attacked.

Yeah, abandon the game plan that's given Iran their best ever results in a 4-year period in their entire history so they can get destroyed by Spain 3-0.
