Two wins out of two have secured Spain top spot in Group B and a berth in the last eight at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Rio de Janeiro 2007. Their final game in the section pits them against the departing Iranians.

The game
Spain - Iran, Tuesday 6 November, 09:30 (local time).

The stakes
Following a successful outing against Portugal, in which they clinched their pass to the knockout stages and first place in the group, it is more than likely that Spain will give their supporting cast a chance to shine. With nothing at stake, coach Joaquin will be tempted to rest some of his habitual starters, and Amarelle, who is still struggling with a sore back, is perhaps the man most in need of a break.

The Asian representatives have been a revelation in Rio and the run-out against the group winners will give them another 36 minutes of valuable experience that should stand them in good stead for the future.

The players
Both sides have one man suspended. Spain's Javi Alvarez picked up a second yellow card against Portugal, while Iran's Hassan Abdollahi saw red against the Americans.

The past
This will be the second time the two sides have faced each other at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, Spain running out 6-1 winners in 2006.

The words
We wanted to finish top of the group and although we've achieved that we'll still be going into the Iran game with the same motivation and sense of responsibility - Joaquin, Spain coach.

We didn't expect to get knocked out, but that's the way it is. I'm now looking for us to beat Spain and end the tournament on the highest possible note - Marco Octavio, Iran coach.
