  • Spain Iran World Cup 2018

With Morocco heading towards their first win of the tournament, Iago Aspas delivered the late heroics when he back-heeled the ball into the net to cancel out Youssef En-Nesyri's brilliant 81st-minute header for Morocco.

Spain have finished top of Group B at the World Cup after drawing 2-2 with Morocco in Kaliningrad, and will play Russian Federation, the runners-up of Group A, in the last 16 on Sunday.

The result, combined with Portugal's 1-1 draw against Iran, sees Spain through to the round of 16 as group winners because of total goals scored and will now face Russian Federation in the knockout round.

Morocco striker Khalid Boutaib gave the north African side a shock early lead but Isco levelled, blasting high into the net after a layoff from Andres Iniesta.

Morocco returned to the pitch with renewed objective after the break, taking the play to Spain and Nordin Amrabat almost gave the North Africans the lead in the 56th minute when his thunderbolt from 25 yards clanged off the far post and crossbar.

Spain then went close twice just after the hour mark with Isco's goal-bound header cleared off the line by Morocco's Romain Saïss before Gerard Pique nodded just wide of the far post from a set piece.

With time running out Spain finally began to play with urgency but could not find the equaliser until Aspas struck and his goal was finally given after a long wait for VAR confirmation.

Social media users took delight in Ramos' error-strewn display as Spain scraped a 2-2 draw against an unfancied Morocco.
