  • Dejan Lovren makes a tackle

With 35 minutes on the clock Spain had made 300 passes to the 63 of Russian Federation but had not mustered a single effort on target and led only through Sergei Ignashevich's comical own goal. I can safely say that we can all look each other in the eye.

Chelsea midfielder Fabregas has won one World Cup and two European Championships with the Spanish national team.

"We have a team to keep dreaming", the 32-year-old said on Spain's Telecinco channel.

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.

Putin did not attend the match in Moscow and it is not known if he will attend Russia's quarter-final.

Based on Russia's ranking of 70th in the world, this match was the biggest upset ever in the knockout stage of the World Cup, and the third biggest upset overall.

The famous Man United and Danish keeper Peter Schmeichel took a break from his coverage of the FIFA World Cup on RT to watch his son perform magic on the pitch against Croatia in Nizhny Novgorod.

Akinfeev saved Koke's penalty to give Russian Federation the advantage.




It has been confirmed that legendary midfielder Andres Iniesta has retired from Spanish global duty.

"It's reality that today has been my last match for the national team", he told reporters.

Tens of thousands of fans in the capital's Federation Internationale de Football Association fan fest crowded around several huge screens as they witnessed what many of them would have believed unthinkable before the match.

"This is a great victory for us, for the whole country, the soul of the country", Mikhail Sitner, 34, from Moscow, said.

Gone from the World Cup tournament so far are No.1-ranked Germany, No.4 Portugal and No.5 Argentina. "I'm sure all of Spain are proud of us".

Backed at a high of [30.0], England are now trading at just [7.0] to win the World Cup, and they are the only nation from the first four in the betting that are in their side of the draw.

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