Hundreds of Iranian fans spent several overnight hours surrounding the hotel where Portugal's national team is based, making loud noises in an attempt to disrupt their opponents' sleep before a decisive World Cup match later Monday.
The result, combined with Spain's 2-2 draw with Morocco and an earlier win for Uruguay over hosts Russian Federation in Group A, means Portugal will play Uruguay in Sochi on June 30, while Group B winners Spain will face Russian Federation in Moscow on July 1.
"So the first conclusion I draw is that despite all these challenges, we emerged on top, so we need to look at the silver lining, think positive".
Portugal will face Uruguay, which took the top spot from Russian Federation in a 3-0 win earlier Monday.
"Overall, I'm happy we finished top of the group, which is what we wanted".
"Obviously we can improve and there are things we definitely need to work on".
It was all the invitation Boutaib needed and he pounced on the loose ball, left a flailing Ramos behind, and slotted the ball between David De Gea's legs to give Morocco a 1-0 lead. Entering the final matchday, both teams are +1, so whichever team's margin of victory is higher would win Group B. If the goal differentials are identical, then it comes down to goals scored in group play-entering the final matchday, both teams are level.

If Iran defeats Portugal in its final game, it will advance.
Renard said in his press conference: "We were a bit upset when Pique was not booked when he used both feet, but maybe this is not the most important aspect.
"I'm going to repeat that our initial goal was to be at the top of the group and we've reached that goal". "But now we need to be very demanding with ourselves and have clearly in mind that if we concede goals so easily, it will be very hard to reach our ultimate goal".
"It was a very competitive World Cup game, minute-by-minute, duel-by-duel, playing against one of the best teams in the world".
He added: "We would have loved to have beaten Spain - that was why we came here".
That hurts a lot, more to them than to the other players.
