Spain coach Hierro has announced his 11-men to clash with Iran in the second Group of the World Cup in Russia.

The clash kicks off at 8:00 pm Cairo local time.

The two rivals meet on the pitch of Kazan Arena in Russia.

Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Carvajal، Pique، Ramos، Alba
Midfield: Busquets، Iniesta، Isco
Attackers: Silva Vazquez، Costa.



After a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal in their opening 2018 FIFA World Cup encounter، Spain will be targeting victory when they meet Carlos Queiroz's Iran in their second Group B match. Here is how the teams will line up، Soccerladuma reported.

Even though the result from their first match was not what the Spaniards would have wanted، they are still considered as one of the favourites to win the showpiece in Russia.

The European giants will be slightly worried going into this encounter، though، having been eliminated at the group stages in two of the past three World Cups in which they have failed to win their opening game.

Portugal currently top the group after seeing off Morocco 1-0 this afternoon.

Iran، who will be facing La Furia Roja for the first time، are winless against European opposition at the World Cup، having lost five of their six previous fixtures against them.

Diego Costa will be the one of the many players Iran will need to keep a close eye on during the fixture as the Atletico Madrid star has scored eight goals in his past eight international starts.
