Sergio Ramos posted a attractive Instagram message after Spain lost to Russian Federation

Russia players pose for a team group

Cesc Fabregas is left "speechless" as Spain exit the 2018 World Cup to hosts Russian Federation on Sunday afternoon. Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was the hero for the hosts, saving efforts from Koke and Iago Aspas.

Rewarded with a sponsor's trophy, Akinfeev acknowledged the part played by an 78,000 crowd in Moscow: "I'm not the man of the match, the man of the match is our team - and our fans".

The former Barcelona playmaker was the main man for Spain, scoring the winning goal in the World Cup final eight years ago against the Netherlands, finishing from close range in the dying moments of 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.

This is Russia's first appearance in the knockout stage of the FIFA World Cup as a standalone nation. Instead, Artem Dzyuba levelled the scores from the penalty spot before half-time as La Roja were continually frustrated in their attempts to break down the hosts' well-manned rearguard.

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. "We left our pride and soul out there".

"I was frustrated after the injury, but I've been doing a lot of work to make sure I'm back so I can make a contribution to the team", the Tottenham midfielder said.

Eleven host cities, namely Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara, were selected to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup.

Russian fans are daring to dream their team could win the World Cup.
