Is Spain's World Cup already operating on borrowed time?

Diego Costa scored on a deflection to lift Spain past Iran, despite the best efforts of Carlos Queiroz's side to find an equaliser.
Spain managed to walk away with three points against Iran, but the FC crew explain how Iran managed to disrupt La Roja.
Don Hutchison says while Spain narrowly defeated Iran, there was always going to be one winner in the match.

Mehdi Taremi will see the moment again and again in his sleep. The next time a ball is aimed perfectly at his head at the far post, with eight minutes of a critical World Cup tie to play, he will launch his 6-foot-2 frame at the ball, time his leap perfectly and send the net billowing. The next time an opportunity that glaring comes around, he will leave nothing to chance, and Spain will not be let off the hook again.

But the Iran striker got his bearings wrong, and Spain, whichever way you see...

Quality full-back play among the contenders visibly absent at the 2018 World Cup so far

Spain managed to walk away with three points against Iran, but the FC crew explain how Iran managed to disrupt La Roja.
ESPN FC's Stewart Robson believes Juan Carlos Osorio and Mexico hatched a perfect, counterattacking game plan against an aging Germany side.
ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik feels France's midfield lacks a true leader which could be detrimental to their World Cup hopes.
The FC crew take a comprehensive look at how Iceland stifled Argentina and revisit La Albiceleste's continued dependence on Lionel Messi.

Seven days into the 2018 World Cup, arguably the defining feature has been the all-around quality. The matches have been positive, the ball has aided beautiful long-range goals, the refereeing has largely been good, there have been few reports of crowd trouble. Everything is going well.

That quality extends to the on-field performances. International tournaments are often handicapped by negative, defensive-minded displays, but throughout this tournament, we've seen purposeful possession play and...

Palace offer Zaha huge deal amid Spurs interest

Crystal Palace will offer attacker Wilfried Zaha a lucrative new deal to fend off interest from Tottenham, the Mirror reports.

Spurs have long been keen on Zaha, but Palace will shell out more than £120,000 a week to persuade him to stay in South London -- "believed to be more than their London rivals...

Cristiano Ronaldo tells story behind new goatee as Portugal beat Morocco

Ronaldo joins episode five of Project Russia to discuss Brazil's World Cup hopes and his ambitions for Neymar.

Cristiano Ronaldo underlined his G.O.A.T credentials in Portugal's 3-3 draw with Spain last time out... and is now sporting a goatee.

The Real Madrid star scored a stunning hat trick for Portugal in their Group B opener and his celebration caused a bit of a stir.

Some thought he was claiming himself to be the greatest of all time (or GOAT, as all the cool kids say) but his coach Fernando Santos laughed that off.

"In Portugal, it is a common gesture to touch your chin. It means that you...

Isco stands out with 8/10 performance as Spain struggle to beat Iran

Spain managed to walk away with three points against Iran, but the FC crew explain how Iran managed to disrupt La Roja.
Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record versus Morocco, Luis Suarez led Uruguay past Saudi Arabia and much more headline Matchday 7.

Spain put in their second mixed-bag performance of the World Cup, needing Diego Costa's fortunate goal to beat an Iran side that defended superbly and came close to getting a late equaliser.

La Roja were their usual composed selves in possession but were frustrated by Carlos Queiroz's well-organised defence through the opening 45 minutes, with over 80 percent of possession bringing just one shot on target. The goal soon after the break should really have freed Fernando Hierro's team to properly...
