The Spanish national team won the game against the Iranians, scoring a single goal in minute 54. Despite some intense moments and one truly massive pileup, the Iranian team could not put the ball in their adversary's net.
Iranian midfielder Saeid Ezatolahi Afagh could have had a chance to equalize the score midway through the second half, but his would-be goal was overturned after the referee consulted the video assistant referee system and found that Iran was offsides.
The match sparked some colorful reactions on social media. Some praised the players' teamwork.
Others simply enjoyed the more awkward moments of the game.
Just like previous games, this one had its share of forceful collisions — sometimes even involving a referee.

Some found some important life wisdom in certain moments of this game.
