Ansarifard added: "After conceding the goal against Spain, we created so many chances".

World Cup Group B came to a dramatic close on Monday evening as Spain and Portugal qualified for the last-16 at the expense of fearless Iran.

We will fight for our pride in the match against Portugal.

And with Argentina facing a tough task to avoid elimination, Starsport has looked at what lies ahead for the final matches for the group stage beginning tomorrow.

The two sides shared the points in a dramatic finale as Iran were awarded a controversial late penalty through VAR, before nearly nicking qualification to the knockout stages from Portugal in the 95th minute.

Portugal's dramatic 1-1 draw with Iran in Group B's final round on Monday included the 19th and 20th spot-kicks of the tournament.

In the first half alone, Khalid Boutaib burst through the Spanish backline - scoring once and firing the other at David De Gea, who at least now has now made a save in the 2018 World Cup (something he hadn't done in the first two games).

Group A was won easily, while Group B came down to injury time, before we knew the first two knockout stage matchups for the weekend.

Cristiano Ronaldo had to ask a group of rowdy Iran fans to quiet down after they gathered outside the Portugal team hotel in Saransk on Sunday evening. The likes of Luis Suarez will be rearing to take on Ronaldo and his men.

"Uruguay then started playing their type of football". He later escaped a red card after the referee consulted VAR and showed him a yellow for elbowing an opposition player.

When he made his worldwide debut in 1996, Ramadan Sobhy, who came on a substitute, was not even born.

The Saudis ended a dispiriting run of 12 World Cup matches without a win, recording their first victory at a finals since 1994 with a last-gasp victor from Salem al-Dawsari.

On the stroke of halftime, Quaresma, making his World Cup debut at the age of 34, played a one-two with Adrien Silva to cut in from the right flank and curled the ball past the outstretched hands of Beiranvand with the outside of his boot.
