Host Russia extends World Cup party by eliminating Spain
02 July, 2018, 12:11 | Author: Heather Diaz
Russian Federation advances to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1970 after defeating Spain 4-3 on penalties.
Koke's penalty was saved by Akinfeev and Golovin stepped up to smash home and give the hosts the advantage, but Ramos kept Spain in it before Cheryshev put the hosts on the brink of victory - and then Akinfeev saved Aspas' effort with his foot to send them through to the next round, where they will face Croatia. It was the first match of the tournament to go to penalty kicks. Cherchesov has masterminded a remarkable upturn in fortunes, with back-to-back wins over Saudi Arabia and Egypt to launch their campaign sparking a wave of national euphoria. Apart from the own-goal on the night, the attempted clearance deflecting off Costa into Iran's goal was vital to their progression to the Round of Sixteen and they got out of jail in their final group stage encounter against Morocco.
Gerard Pique gifted Russian Federation the equaliser by using his hands to stop a header inside their box in the 41st minute.
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.

And it was those two who almost won it for Spain with five minutes to go, when first Iniesta and then Aspas fired shots at Akinfeev's goal - only for the skipper to parry both away.
