Kochi, Oct 21 (IANS) Iran are expected to face an uphill task as they aim to keep their history-making run going against formidable Spain in a quarter-final clash of the FIFA U-17 World Cup here on Sunday.

Much like their senior team, the Spanish youngsters have an exciting possession-based game. They had started their campaign with a narrow loss to Brazil in Group D, but have steadily improved since then.

The Spaniards are familiar with this venue, having played three of their four games so far here.
