• Group B: Portugal, Spain, Morocco, IR Iran

    FIFA.com highlights some of the 'throwback' matches we can expect to see at the world finals in Russia next summer.

    Group B: Portugal, Spain, Morocco, IR Iran

    A 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late penalty to secure a 2-0 victory in Frankfurt for Portugal over Iran in Group D at Germany 2006. The Best FIFA Men’s Player 2017 will be looking to repeat that feat when Portugal face Iran and fellow countryman Carlos Queiroz in Saransk on 25 June 2018.

    Also in this group, one of Morocco’s most famous World Cup wins came against Portugal at Mexico 1986 when they won 3-1 and eventually finished top of a tight Group F. Portugal finished bottom of the group during that edition. The most recently-played World Cup fixture in this group is Portugal-Spain, as the two teams came up against each other in the Round of 16 at South Africa 2010. Spain booked a quarter-final date with Paraguay by beating a Portugal side, led by none other than the aforementioned Queiroz, thanks to a 63rd-minute David Villa goal.
