A well-organised and spirited Iran side fell to Spain 1-0 as Diego Costa's goal separated the two sides.
David De Gea (GK) - 6
Quiet first 45 as play was mostly in Iran's half. Not too troubled in the second half as Iran threatened but were off target.
Jordi Alba - 5.5
Moved up the field to attack and then did well defensively. Some passes were wasted up front.
Sergio Ramos - 6.5
A compact figure in defence.
Gerard Pique - 7
Didn't have to do much in the first half. Latched onto the ball in Iran's box and his tap-in was stopped by Beiranvand.
Dani Carvajal - 6
Back in the staring line-up and was pivotal in moments.
Lucas Vasquez - 5.5
Directed a pass behind Iran's defence in a good effort. Didn't do much else in the remainder of the game.
Andres Iniesta - 8
Kept possession, no surprises there. Was the architect in building up to Costa's goal.
Isco - 8.5
Dictated play, wasn't afraid to run deep. Brilliant to watch his magical movement. Fabulous all match.
Sergio Busquets - 7
Another who kept possession and made accurate passes.
