Iniesta was later subbed on and also scored during the penalty shootout, but his fairy-tale finish to an illustrious Spain career wasn't to be.

Russia's penalty shootout hero, goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, thanked God, luck and the Luzhniki Stadium crowd for bringing the hosts home safely against Spain on Sunday (July 1) to reach their first World Cup quarter-final since 1970.

There was another shock in the World Cup as Spain crashed out of the competition against Russian Federation.

"We have a team to keep dreaming", he said.

Russian Federation is staging its first-ever FIFA World Cup, which kicked off in Moscow with a spectacular opening show at the Luzhniki Stadium on the night of June 14.

Vladimir Putin called King Felipe VI of Spain after a FIFA World Cup Round of 16 match between the two national teams.

A total of 32 national football teams entered the 2018 FIFA World Cup and only 16 of them proceeded to the knockout phase after the group stage, which kicked off on June 14 and ended on June 28. It was not to be. In extra-time we did everything, again - kept the ball.

Spain had a loud claim for a penalty late in extra time, with both Ramos and Pique appearing to be pulled back during a set piece, although referee Bjorn Kuipers did not see a foul even after consulting the video assistant referee system.

"Penalties are a lottery - and we lost today, but I am very proud of these players as captain". If their big players are all performing, then England will surely have too much for either side. "We can not change anything now".
