Wednesday 20th June 2018

Group A
Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia Scorer: Louis Suarez

Group B
Portugal 1-0 Morocco Scorer: Cristiano Ronaldo
Iran 0-1 Spain Scorer: Diego Costa

Gareth Southgate, fell while out on a jog and dislocated his shoulder!

Social Media frenzy:
Iran v Spain. 94th Minute. Iran chasing an equaliser to stay in the competition….
Chance for a long throw into the Spanish box…
Iran’s Milad Mohammadi attempted a somersault flip throw-in : but failed to get the right momentum and had to abort and throw the ball back towards his own half way line.

Twittersphere went into meltdown.

It is now generally accepted to be one of the greatest moments of any World cup – whether you happen to be aghast at the failed attempt – or brightened by the audacity at the biggest point of their career!
