Spain and Portugal collected 1-0 victories in the World Cup on Wednesday, moving to the top of Group B with one match remaining.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his tournament-leading fourth goal to give Portugal its victory over Morocco in the day's opener. Later, Diego Costa's goal pushed Spain past Iran.
