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.

Fernando Hierro has accepted the responsibility of Spain's exit from the World Cup despite taking over as head coach just three days before the tournament commenced. In extra-time we did everything, again - kept the ball.

Russia's penalty shootout hero, goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, thanked God, luck and the Luzhniki Stadium crowd for bringing the hosts home safely against Spain on Sunday to reach their first World Cup quarter-final since 1970.

"Like the entire country, Putin watched the game from the very beginning to the very end and supported the team", Peskov said.

Ramos was involved early in pressuring Russia's Sergey Ignashevich into an own goal to give La Roja a ideal start, but the hosts equalised before the break when Artem Dzyuba converted a penalty awarded for a Gerard Pique handball.

Fernando Hierro & Co were shocked by hosts Russian Federation in Moscow, losing 5-3 on penalties after drawing 1-1. A penalty was the only way they could cause us danger. "Lopetegui's work. We went 23, 24 matches without having loss. but we didn't accept it how it is".

Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique have certainly done their bit for La Roja and have confirmed their retirement after the defeat against Russian Federation on penalties.


"He said that under Cherchesov's leadership, our guys have already accomplished the impossible - made it out of the group", said Peskov.

The 34-year-old was a vital cog in the Spanish machine as they dominated world football across a period of six years, winning two European Championships and securing a World Cup triumph in 2010.

Ramos had a role in Spain's opening goal as Sergei Ignashevich converted into his own net trying to mark the Spaniard.

"It's a reality that this is my last game with the national team, on a wonderful stage", Iniesta told reporters after the defeat.

"We have been the better team and we leave with the feeling that we have been eliminated by an opponent who had not played at our level", Rubiales said.

"Penalties are a lottery - and we lost today, but I am very proud of these players as captain".
