Iran coach Carlos Queiroz: "If the game against Morocco was the World Cup final for us, the game against Spain will be the Universe Cup final".

One of those goals came from a goalkeeping howler from David de Gea, which have also turned the spotlight on the goalkeeper's form going into the second game at Kazan.

Fernando Hierro, Spain's sporting director, is now at the helm but barely a week into the tournament La Roja - expected to join Brazil, Germany and France in the latter stages - have endured more drama than they would have wanted or expected.
