Russia players pose for a team group

Now 2010 champions Spain have followed these favourites out of the World Cup revolving door after they were stunned by hosts Russian Federation in the last 16 in front of 78,011 fans at the Luzhniki Stadium yesterday.

Spain's exit from the 2018 World Cup will be remembered as an abject failure with Russian Federation eliminating La Roja on penalties, and Spain will now be stuck on 99 World Cup goals until at least Qatar 2022.

England know their opponents in the last-16 after Colombia topped Group H. The South Americans reached the quarter-finals last time out and are clearly stronger than Japan, who came second in the group.

The city had been gripped by World Cup fever since the beginning of the tournament, as fans arrived from across the globe including thousands from Latin America.

Vladimir Putin called King Felipe VI of Spain after a FIFA World Cup Round of 16 match between the two national teams. "We will party all night", said of the thousands of fans which gather on Zagreb's main square to watch the match.

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.

Spanish midfielder Andreas Iniesta thanks the crowd after the game. The Vatreni were back on level terms soon afer through Mario Mandzukic, but neither side was unable to land a decisive blow before the end of the 90 minutes.

"Like all Spaniards, we had high hopes and dreams and we are sad that we couldn't do it for the millions of people who were following the game back home", Hierro told reporters.

It is the biggest upset ever in the knockout stage and the third biggest upset overall in World Cup history. "We left our pride and soul out there". I've already said it a lot of times.

There is no denying that De Gea is one of the greatest goalkeepers in the world and his consistent feats of brilliance between the sticks of Manchester United over the years have placed him as the very best in the eyes of several supporters.
