There was no doubt a goal was coming and Silva was involved in the build-up to Diego Costa's second-half victor in the 1-0 victory.

Iran began their campaign with a 1-0 win against Morocco but Queiroz has admitted they will have to produce their "best game ever" if they are to fulfil their aim of causing an almighty World Cup upset.

After a frustrating first half during which Spain could not find an edge to get past Iran well-organized defense, Costa broke the deadlock in the 54th minute after being set up by Andres Iniesta. David Silva took aim but failed to beat Ali Beiranvand, who made a routine save.

Carlos Queiroz's team fashioned chances of their own, and came close through Madhi Taremi who put a powerful header over when well placed just 10 minutes from time.

Spain: De Gea 6, Carvajal 7, Pique 6, Ramos 6, Alba 5, Iniesta 5, Busquets 6, Silva 5, Isco 7, Lucas Vazquez 5, Costa 7.

The moves brought the world's two largest economies to the verge of an all-out confrontation long feared by markets and industry. Tariffs on the remaining 114 items, including chemicals, medical equipment and energy products, will start later.

He said: "I think there are 32 great teams here at this World Cup and no-one is giving anything away, so anyone who thinks it is going to be very easy to score and win by a landslide is wrong".

Spain's frustration was in danger of boiling over shortly before the interval when Costa got involved in an unnecessary spat with Beiranvand, although referee Cunha opted not to punish the combative striker. "They were provoking us, and we were on the grass all the time".

But he was ruled off-side by the VAR, prompting howls of derision from white-clad Iranian fans.

Diego Costa has scored with all three of shots on target in this World Cup. Both the team look to have arrived in their best form for tonight. He also has nine goals in his last nine starts for Spain. The Iranians were awarded a freekick which they fail to goal in on!

Spain play Morocco in their final group game in Kaliningrad, with the Moroccans knowing they are already out having lost their two games so far. The Man City star is likely to start again against Iran and his influence will be crucial if Spain is to pick up their first victory of the 2018 World Cup. He was indeed the standout player on the pitch in the first-half, making 43 passes with a 93 per cent accuracy rate and registering, surprisingly, five shots on goal.
