Spain coach Fernando Hierro relieved after victory over Iran

Spain coach Fernando Hierro defended their performance for victory over World Cup opponents Iran.

Diego Costa's rather fortuitous goal was enough to take Spain to a 1-0 win over a resilient Iran.

"Nobody is winning easily at the World Cup, we've had it as hard as we thought," Hierro explained in a post-match interview with Telecinco.

"It's difficult to get into a rhythm with so much interruption. At half time we corrected some things and improved after the goal.

"Iran are a great team, with clear ideas.

"Queiroz has been working with them for seven years and they won't make things easy for anyone."
