Spain 1-1 Russian Federation

No tactical revolution at Russia World Cup says Jose Mourinho

Russia's win over Spain in the round of 16, 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw, will be remembered here - by soccer aficionados and casual observers alike - as a crowning achievement, an incredible accomplishment for a team expected to deliver mostly disappointment. The World Cup is into the knockout stage, and every match will end with someone going home.

Ramos was accused of setting out to deliberately hurt the Liverpool forward as they tussled for a ball, resulting in Salah needing medical treatment before eventually being substituted midway through the first half, leaving the field in tears.

Spain took the first, Iniesta scoring, before Smolov followed his example - despite De Gea getting a faint touch - and then Pique scored via the inside of the post and Ignashevish sent De Gea the wrong way.

Fernando Hierro's side have conceded five goals in three matches, with questions in particular over the form of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

In farewell to United States shoppers, Toys R Us urges Play on!
It was only a few months later in January 2018 that the chain announced it would close 180 stores thanks to its $5 billion debt. By the end of the day Friday all Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores across the USA will be closed for good.

Cheryshev is nonplussed - it's likely the Villareal forward has heard worse during his many years in La Liga - and he slots his spot-kick straight down the middle to give Russian Federation a 4-3 lead.

Although Salah played and scored in the subsequent defeats to Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, the Pharaohs finished bottom of Group A with their star player unable to reproduce the form that had brought 44 goals in the 2017/18 season. In defeat I feel even more proud of being Spanish'. But it will also go down as a historic example of a thoughtful, disciplined group of players with a plan taking down an established power who never quite rose to the moment. But they managed to win just one match.

Akinfeev's winning save against forward Iago Aspas made the national stadium in Moscow shake with the roar of around 70,000 Russians celebrating their team's best World Cup run since it was the Soviet Union in 1966. "The match is now over, and I'm already thinking about the next game".

"We've put up with so much through the years, so much crap", he said, of Russia's long years in the footballing wilderness.

That resulted in the rarely-used fair play rule to determine which team advanced. Japan will now face either England or Belgium in the last-16.

"It's not a pressure", he said.

Coach Stanislav Cherchesov, still refusing to show any sign of the enormous relief he must be feeling after steering the hosts out of the group phase against most Russians' expectations, would not discuss his emotions and put the result down to packing a five-man defensive line to smother Spain. "They are two different things", said the 54-year-old.

"This is something like an exam in Russian - what you write your teacher or professor will read and check and you can't change anything".

"It was like a test game, tomorrow is an official game".
