Spain will face Iran today, a match which will probably decide whether the 2010 FIFA World Cup winner will secure their spot in the knockout stage or not. After a disappointing opening round draw with Portugal, Spain need to overcome the disappointment be beating Iran.
Spain's World Cup already was off to an awful start after head coach Julen Lopetegui was shacked just two days prior to the World Cup opening game, and the 3-3 draw against Portugal was a bit of hangover for the team. While Iran looks strong on the front with 3 point lead at the Group Stage.
