Russian Federation beat Spain on penalties to reach World Cup quarterfinals

Croatia's Ivan Perisic left controls the ball to score his site's second goal as Iceland's Sverrir Ingason runs during the group D match between Iceland and Croatia at the 2018 soccer World Cup

But the way the draw has worked out, England have been presented with an incredible chance to potentially reach their first World Cup final since 1966.

And it looked as if they would seal their passage to the quarter-finals as a Sergey Ignashevich own goal gave them the lead after just 12 minutes.

"It's very hard", Ramos said. We dominated it and created lots of chances.

Spain had a loud claim for a penalty late in extra time, with both Ramos and Pique appearing to be pulled back during a set piece, although referee Bjorn Kuipers did not see a foul even after consulting the video assistant referee system. The team did everything possible to try and prove ourselves again. It was not to be.

Japan advance on fair play points despite loss to Poland
Japan , therefore, reached the round of 16 along with Colombia, with England or Belgium lying in wait. Japan and Senegal ended up tied for second in points, goal differential, goals for and goals against.

"As we perfectly well showed to the world, we welcome any fans from any country", Sorokin said.

From 1950 to 1978 there was something of a goal drought for Spain at the biggest global tournament with only two coming in 1962 in Chile and four in England's tournament held in 1966. We were hoping for penalties and that's what happened.

There have been 48 Spanish players who have scored on the biggest stage for the national team and it's David Villa who has found the net the most with his tally of nine goals from 2006 to 2014.

Critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin have accused him of using the World Cup to defy Western sanctions over the seizure of Crimea from Ukraine, though a number of national leaders and ministers have attended matches and met Putin or members of his government.
