Spain (2010 World Cup Winners) and Portugal (2016 Euro Winners) along with Iran and Morocco comprises of Group B. Both the European giants had a solid qualification campaign. Spain won nine of their ten fixtures, drawing only against the Azzuri (Italy) in an away fixture with five points clear of the latter. A Ronaldo-inspired Portugal also won nine of their ten fixtures and eventually tied on points with the Swiss, but qualified directly on the basis of goal difference sending the Swiss to the play-off round. At least in the group stage, the sheer dominance of the neighbors can be witnessed. Iran also qualified quite comfortably in their Asia campaign ahead of South Korea and Syria, but still lack the skills to match the likes of La Roja (Spain) and Seleção (Portugal). Morocco edged the mighty Ivory Coast in order to earn their spot in to the World Cup. For Iran and Morocco to proceed from the group, they have to upset the big teams and play the role of party spoilers. But again, the possibility of this happening seems bleak and difficult.
