Despite the frustration of conceding an 88th-minute equaliser to Ronaldo following two goals from Diego Costa and a stunning strike from Nacho, Isco believes Spain's resolve remains intact.

A lucky goal by Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa handed Spain their first win of the tournament following a 3-3 draw with Portugal last week.

At first glance, it looked like Costa had stepped on Beiranvand's feet as he threw the ball before dropping to the ground. That being said, Spain were rightly judged to have too much of a defensive focus given the opposition.

Iran's last three World Cup goals had all come in the final 15 minutes of matches and they continued to press Spain for a leveler and nearly succeeded on 83 minutes but Taremi headed over.

Kissing the ball and tapping it against his head, Mohammadi then proceeded to try and pull off a somersault throw-in towards Spain's goal box.

However, consultation with the video assistant referee saw the goal correctly ruled out for offside.

Carlos Queiroz's Iran side had gone close through Karim Ansarifard and Mehdi Taremi before the crucial offside call and their endeavour throughout seemed to endear them to the crowd at the Kazan Arena.

But Hierro insists the problems posed by Iran - who thought they had equalised only for Saeid Ezatolahi's effort to be ruled out by the video assistant referee - indicate there can be no guarantees in Russian Federation.
