Carlos Queiroz fumes after Cristiano Ronaldo was not sent off against Iran

Spain and Portugal were largely expected to finish in this order in this group, but not like this.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty before Portugal conceded an injury-time spot-kick in a 1-1 draw with Iran at the FIFA World Cup 2018 Group B match on Monday as the European champions set up a last-16 clash with Uruguay.

He said the boots "celebrate the 85 worldwide goals" he has scored during his career.

From a bitter supporter of the eliminated German team at World Cup, soccer didn't need anything else to slow down the game.

The turquoise-coloured boots are supported by a golden chrome sole plate and Ronaldo gave his new wheels a test drive during training on Wednesday morning at their Moscow base.

Two such decisions were in the Portugal-Iran match.

In addition to the boots Ronaldo will wear, 154 pairs will be made available to the public.

Spain rescued a 2-2 draw to top the group on goals scored after coming back from behind twice.

Emotions rose nearly immediately, after a clumsy challenge from Morteza Pouraliganji on Ronaldo handed Portugal a penalty, courtesy of VAR, but the Real Madrid star failed to beat Beiranvand, who kept his side in contention. Ronaldo then avoided a red card after a VAR referral and Iran were awarded a penalty in the dying minutes of the match which they scored to level the tie.

If Ronaldo had converted the penalty in the 53rd minute, it would have given Portugal a 2-0 lead and the Real Madrid player a fifth goal of the tournament.

Russian Federation 2018 has broken the record for the most penalties awarded in a World Cup, with VAR continuing to dominate debate.

"But last night, I don't know who was behind the screens and helping the referee but they didn't do a good job".

Earlier, Portugal coach Fernando Santos called Iran "the best Asian team" at the moment.

But I think Iran, without any doubt in my opinion, with the discipline, with the attitude, with the way we controlled the game, if there was some justice in football - which doesn't exist - only one victor would have come out in this game.
