Results have not been too bad, as Spain are level on points with Portugal for top spot in Group B and in an excellent position to qualify for the knockout stage.Knowing his team would be facing a very defensive Iran team Wednesday night, Hierro came up with a different formation to the one used for the 3-3 draw with Portugal last week.Hierro also repositioned Isco on the left, and it proved to be a successful decision as the Real Madrid was dominant in the midfield.Hierro, a former Real Madrid star who spent 14 seasons at the Merengue club, has no major coaching experience before joining the national squad and it's unclear whether he will remain at the helm of that after the World Cup.The 50-year-old Hierro was Carlo Ancelotti's assistant at Real Madrid and coached second-division club Real Oviedo two seasons ago.
