Russia Stun Spain, Advance to World Cup Quarterfinals After Winning on Penalties

They have been second best in this first half, but they are back on level terms.

Aspas almost picked out Carvajal with a cut-back seconds into the start of extra time, which saw Aleksandr Erokhin come on as Russia´s fourth sub - the first time the rule has been applied at the World Cup.

Spain are yet to hit their groove and take on the hosts at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow for a place in the quarter-finals. Russian Federation will return to the Luzhniki Stadium, having played their opening match at the iconic venue, and will lean on fervent support to go in search of a famous win.

Russian defender Sergei Ignashevich was trying to wrestle Ramos down to the ground at the back post at a corner only for the ball to ricochet off the Russian and into the back of the net. Subs - Granat 5, Smolov 6, Cheryshev 6, Erokhin 5. The Spanish players are incensed that they haven't been awarded a penalty kick for what they perceived to be a foul in the box.

Andres Iniesta came on for Silva and Nacho was replaced by Dani Carvajal in another Spain switch with 20 minutes remaining.

Spain, refusing to give up on its passing game for a more direct approach, continued its drilling of the opposition defence, but Russia's closing down of space left it with few openings to test Igor Akinfeev as the second session started in a similar pace.

But despite recording 78.2 per cent possession in Moscow, Spain could not find a way to break down Russian Federation as the tie entered extra time.

However, Iniesta's effort was parried away by Igor Akinfeev and extra time was called in Moscow.

Russia's 2018 World Cup campaign got off to a dream start on day one and and still going strong.

With neither side able to break the deadlock they went into extra time level at 1-1 after 90 minutes.

Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, who saved two penalties and was named the Man of the Match, had "one of his best games", Anokhin added. But after consulting VAR the referee ruled out a penalty.

The 32-year-old keeper saved Koke's and Iago Aspas' spot kicks after both teams had scored two apiece in Russia's first ever World Cup penalty shootout, to set up a last eight clash with either Denmark or Croatia, after a lackluster 1-1 draw over 120 minutes.
