'That's Life' Says Andres Iniesta After Spain Farewell Ends In Defeat

"It's a reality that this is my last game with the national team, on a wonderful stage", Iniesta, who scored the victor in Spain's World Cup final victory over Netherlands in 2010, said.

Following a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes of play, Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev saved Koke and Iago Aspas' penalties as Russian Federation emerged 4-3 winners in the shoot-out lottery. "It is necessary to announce a series of rallies demanding to give the Akinfeev hero of Russian Federation". On the coast, fans jumped into the sea as the party got started.

"A wonderful period has come to an end".

Before the penalty shootout, Kasper Schmeichel was already at it when he denied Luka Modric's penalty shot in extra time.

When Ivan Rakitic sent Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way with the final penalty to send Croatia into the last 8, Croatian fans all around the world went insane.

The famous Man United and Danish keeper Peter Schmeichel took a break from his coverage of the FIFA World Cup on RT to watch his son perform magic on the pitch against Croatia in Nizhny Novgorod. He refereed Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco and Germany's 2-0 loss to South Korea, which eliminated the defending champions.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, after Russian Federation knocked the 2010 champions out on penalties in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, that Putin - who watched the game on TV - had not put any pressure on the team to win. "A group that has a big ambition to triumph and that is why I am happy about everything". And then we drew Spain, I thought everything would end. "So I'm looking forward to being a part of it again". We dominated it and created lots of chances. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below. Cavani, meanwhile, explained: "I just felt something at one point and couldn't recover". De Gea also made a bad error in a pre-World Cup friendly against Switzerland, and the goalkeeper will want to quickly restore his reputation with United when the 2018-19 campaign begins.
