Spain's World Cup roller-coaster ride finally ground to a halt on Sunday and the finger-pointing began after their third consecutive failure at a major tournament.

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

Argentina and Portugal's eliminations from the World Cup on Saturday has led to much talk over the worldwide futures of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

This was their first penalty shootout in World Cups, while for Spain this was their fourth. I've already said it a lot of times.

Mighty Spain dominated the field at Luzhniki Stadium, dulled the senses with mind-numbing ball movement around the perimeter of the penalty area Sunday. Misses from Koke and Iago Aspas during the shootout allowed Russian Federation to clinch a 4-3 victory and progress to Saturday's quarterfinal in Sochi against Croatia.

Iniesta lost just 15 games with Spain, winning 96 and drawing 15, and scored 13 goals.

Spain, which was a favorite to win the tournament, came out strong with a goal off Russia's Sergei Ignashevish's foot, but then evened the match with a goal of his own.

Despite Mr Trump's stance, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the chamber would press ahead on legislation next week. Instead, Trump has blamed the Democrats for refusing to acquiesce to his demands on immigration.

Russian Federation fans wept and leapt for joy as Moscow went into meltdown after their football team knocked Spain out of the World Cup on penalties.

And Pique handled at the other end to concede a penalty before the break. Against Russia, Igor Akinfeev starred in the shootout while he failed to save at least two spot-kicks he might have kept out.

And he told Radio Estadio afterward yesterday's match: "This was my last game for Spain". "On a personal level, it's the end of a wonderful phase".

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

David de Gea is under alot of scrutiny after an very bad World Cup display as Spain were dumped out of the tournament by hosts Russian Federation.

"Honestly, before the tournament I had very low expectations, everyone was just hoping to God that we would get out of the group stage".
