Cristiano Ronaldo Reacts to Iranian Fans outside Portugal's Hotel

Iago Aspas’ decisive stoppage-time goal was ruled out before VAR intervened

The penalty awarded to Iran later in the game was the 20th of this World Cup, converted by Karim Ansarifard.

"Now we have to continue with this mindset of winning and wait for the next match".

It looked for all the world as though Spain would have to settle for second in the group, but Aspas' late goal was eventually allowed after VAR ruled he was onside when he turned home from a corner. With his second strike against La Furia Roja, the 33-year-old became only the second Portuguese to score a World Cup goal from outside the box, joining Deco, who managed to do so against Iran in 2006.

Two previously eliminated teams, Egypt and Saudi Arabia will play in the first dead rubber of the 2018 World Cup, as both teams try to leave the tournament with a victory. Portugal face Uruguay in the next round.

In a high-intensity World Cup match, the rock-solid Iran accomplished a one-for-the-books tie against Portugal.

Iran need to beat Portugal in their Monday match to progress to the knockout rounds of the tournament.

There was no VAR intervention on that occasion, but referee Enrique Caceres trotted over to the pitchside monitor after an altercation between Ronaldo and Morteza Pouraliganji. Saudi Arabia and Egypt faced off in the final Group A match-up.

Russian Federation 2018 has broken the record for the most penalties awarded in a World Cup, with VAR continuing to dominate debate.

El Hadary, who is 45 years and 161 days old, smashed the record set by Colombia goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, who was aged 43 years and three days when he played against Japan in Brazil in 2014.

Earlier in the day, Uruguay secured top spot in Group A with their third win in a row and third clean sheet. The goals might have come from a Luis Suarez free-kick and a cruel deflection off Denis Cheryshev from Laxalt's shot, but the dynamic attacking football of the men in sky blue clearly unsettled the Russians.

He both the free-kick and penalty he scored, and forced David de Gea's error, but regardless of the goals, he was consistently involved - leading the line, bringing others into play, out-jumping Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos.

"You are playing in the biggest competition in the world and it seems like VAR is on trial and it is not right".

And after all that, both games ended as draws with injury time levellers to put Spain and Portugal through.
