Vissel Kobe midfielder Andres Iniesta admits Julen Lopetegui's sacking unsettled Spain's players.

Fernando Hierro took over the reins of the team ahead of the first match in Russia after Lopetegui was sacked three days before the start of the tournament after deciding to join Real Madrid.

"It was a moment that we want to put behind us, it was not comfortable for anyone and we are concentrated on what we have ahead," said former Barcelona captain Iniesta.

"Our conviction over what we were doing and what we will do is what we need to concentrate on. The match against Portugal was not easy and the team showed that we know what we are doing.

"I don't want to stop there though and we need to keep going, Iran will not be easy but if we win we will be in a very good position.

"My role has been to give my opinion and what characterises this team above everything else is the union, we are all fighting together and we need to keep that up." (Tribal Football)
