Portugal and Iran face off in a high-stakes Group B encounter that could send the Europeans to the next stage of the competition.
With a win and a draw in the bag, Portugal has a good chance of qualifying for the knockouts at this year’s World Cup. A draw should be enough to send Cristiano Ronaldo & Co to the next stage. However, if Iran manages to pull off a surprise win and Spain beats Morocco, Portugal’s journey at the World Cup will come to a surprising end.
The Europeans met Spain in Round 1 in a spectacular game that ended 3-3. It then faced Morocco, pulling off a narrow 1-0 win. It was a tough game for Portugal, but Ronaldo’s brilliance saved the team once again, gaining the three points crucial for advancement. He scored in the 4th minute, giving Portugal the advantage it needed to secure a victory. Ronaldo has scored all of Portugal’s goals at the World Cup so far.
Meanwhile, Iran’s journey at the World Cup has been bumpier. The team scored three points after its 0-1 win against Morocco in the opening game, but lost 0-1 to Spain in Round 2. Despite going toe to toe with Spain and putting up a good fight, a lucky goal by Diego Costa in the 54th minute cost them big.
With both Spain and Portugal placed ahead of it with 4 points, Iran really needs to up the ante during the Portugal encounter if it’s hoping to avoid elimination. Fun fact: a win against Portugal will send Iran to the World Cup knockout stages for the first time in history, since it failed to get past the group stage in its previous four tournament appearances.
The Group B match will be Portugal and Iran’s second encounter at a World Cup after 2006. Back then, Iran lost 2-0. That game also marked Cristiano Ronaldo’s first ever goal in the tournament. The Tuesday match will take place at Mordovia Arena.
