VAR sends Iranian to hospital!

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz said he was concerned after a member of his staff was taken to hospital during the nail-biting 1-0 World Cup defeat to Spain on Wednesday.

The Iranians thought they had scored an equaliser, but Saeid Ezatolahi's header was disallowed for offside after the referee consulted the Video Assistant Referee.

Portuguese coach Queiroz said: "We're more concerned because one member of our staff is in difficulties from a health point of view after the VAR decision.

"He went to the hospital. We hope everything will be alright."

“Our prayers go out to him at this moment."
