Iran can only advance to the next stage of the World Cup if it beats the European champions. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

Iran coach Queiroz, who worked with him at Manchester United and with the national team, has called Portugal "Cristiano Rolando and a group of players who run after him". Find out by following our live matchcast.

Portugal have won three of their four World Cup games against Asian opposition, losing against host nation South Korea in 2002. "We have to do all it takes", a still joyful Fayez said, as he held an Iranian flag on the back of his head.

As Iran fans sang and cheered outside the Portuguese hotel, Ronaldo leapt into action.

Iran have had the fewest shots on goal in the World Cup, with two.

Colombia dedicate crucial win to embattled Sanchez
Jose Pekerman's men were better in possession, livelier and more willing to push forward and seemed to be a team transformed. Cuadrado collected the pass and rushed toward the box, timing his shot perfectly to beat goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny .

Carlos Queiroz also hit out at Iran and Spain referee Andres Cunha, saying the Uruguayan's decisions went against Team Melli.

Against Portugal, Ramin Rezaeian will likely be up against Bruno Fernandes, but the right-back is expected to shift into a central role in order to help the centre-halves stop the unsafe Cristiano Ronaldo, with the wingers dropping in deeper roles.

Team Melli striker Sardar Azmoun has played his club football in Russian Federation since 2013 and a year ago rejoined Rubin Kazan for a second spell.

Iran, on three points in the group, will likely need a win to save their dream of progressing to the knockout stages.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored all of Portugal's goals in this tournament including a hat-trick in the 3-3 draw against Spain.

Iran fan and IT consultant Mehdi Fayez arrived Monday morning after reading messages from supporters saying they needed to trouble Portugal to stand a better chance of winning the match.
