Spain will be hoping to get their first victory in this 2018 FIFA World Cup when they face Iran tonight. Sergio Ramos and his teammates could only draw against Portugal thanks to a magnificent hattrick scored by Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Spain is still expected to win the group and the remaining two games against Iran and Morocco could be crucial to decide just that, given that Spain and Portugal could potentially finish the group stage even on points.
Real Madrid starting right-back Dani Carvajal could return to the lineup but coach Fernando Hierro might as well keep trusting Nacho for that spot after his brilliant performance against Portugal. However, Carvajal is the best fit for that position and he should probably return to the starting XI sooner rather than later.
Goalkeeper David De Gea has been under a lot of pressure lately and his howler against Ronaldo didn't help. Some rumors in Spain suggest that Hierro could give Kepa a chance to start, but it seems unlikely.
