- Spain advance to the semi-finals at India 2017
- Abel Ruiz, Sergio Gomez, and Ferran Torres with the goals for La Rojita
- Spain face African champions Mali in the last four on Wednesday
La Rojita nearly doubled their advantage, but Gholam Zadeh made a superb save to deny Cesar Gelabert at his feet, with the ball flying over the Iran crossbar.
Any hopes Team Melli had of a comeback ended on the hour mark, as Sergio Gomez scored a fantastic goal when he took a Ferran Torres pass before turning and beating Gholam Zadeh with long-distance strike off his left foot. Torres then added a third goal when he finished off Mohamed Moukliss’s low cross.
Though Saeid Karimi pulled a goal back for Iran, Spain held on to secure their spot in the last four and a meeting with Mali in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday.
