History maker Andres Iniesta confirms Spain retirement after Russian Federation defeat

"It is more complicated than what it seems.

We will party all night", said of the thousands of fans which gather on Zagreb's main square to watch the match.

Russia's goalkeeper, Igor Akinfeev, made an incredible save with his foot on Spain's final kick.

But Schmeichel made a smart save to keep the 1-1 stalemate intact through two hours of at times pedestrian football.

"It's very hard", Ramos said, as per ESPN.

Mighty Spain dominated the field at Luzhniki Stadium, dulled the senses with mind-numbing ball movement around the perimeter of the penalty area Sunday.

Just before the end of extra time, Spain asked for a penalty but after the referee consulted with VAR they rejected the Spanish appeals. A penalty was the only way they could cause us danger.

"This morning I was very nervous, but now it is time to celebrate".

Epic Games Aims to Re-Release ‘Fortnite’ Playground Mode ASAP

The last addition to the elite group of 12 nations who have contested World Cup finals was Spain when they won the title for the first time in 2010.

Andres Iniesta confirmed he has played his last game for Spain after they crashed out of the World Cup on penalties to Russian Federation after Sunday's round-of-16 game in Moscow finished 1-1 after extra time.

Spain's dominance will do nothing to ease the disappointment following what can now be judged as a truly farcical World Cup campaign.

The Russians never stopped running - not even 38-year-old Ignashevich and surely they exceeded their tournament average of 110km covered - and maybe Spain were banking on them to tire in the extra 30 minutes. Instead, Artem Dzyuba levelled the scores from the penalty spot before half-time as La Roja were continually frustrated in their attempts to break down the hosts' well-manned rearguard.

Naturally, the world was shocked by this upset, with some of the best reactions coming at Spain's expense.

Spain joined Argentina, Portugal and Germany among the big guns to have been eliminated from this World Cup, but Iniesta said he believed the future for the Spain team was bright. I can safely say that we can all look each other in the eye.

Russian fans are daring to dream their team could win the World Cup.
