Iran vs Portugal match preview

Iranian tails will be right up on Monday with the opportunity to reach the knockout stages of the World Cup.

Having secured a late three points against Morocco in their opening game, they sit on three points in Group B, one point behind both Spain and Portugal.

Carlos Queiroz’s side were impressive against Spain and were unfortunate to lose against one of the tournament’s favourites, giving them confidence ahead of taking on the European champions.

Ronaldo’s response

Cristiano Ronaldo will now be looking to respond to Harry Kane’s hat-trick against Panama, which has moved the Tottenham Hotspur striker on to five goals – one ahead of the Portuguese captain.

The Real Madrid forward has been one of the biggest talking points in Russia thus far, helping his nation to four points from their first two games.
