Overall Game Assessment
Iran hung tough the whole game. They had their chances to tie too - including a disallowed goal on an offsides call. They gave Span a lot of pressure on the attack. Defensively, they were very conservative until the first goal as they were packing the box and daring Spain to beat them from the outside. It was an effective strategy and gave Spain problems. To hold Spain to one goal is also a major accomplishment!
