Croatian president sees Russian Federation as worthy opponent in 2018 FIFA World Cup


But the way the draw has worked out, England have been presented with an awesome chance to potentially reach their first World Cup final since 1966. Today they need to make history if they want to continue on their journey to the quarter finals.

"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. Hierro has made his decision, Koke starts, but he's also made two other unforced chances as Nacho and Asensio replace Carvajal and Iniesta respectively.

The game lacked pace and tempo even after the break with both teams cautious not concede too much space and the Russians playing without an out-and-out striker after the substitution of Dzyuba.

"This morning I was very nervous, but now it is time to celebrate".

Julen Lopetegui's dismissal on the eve of the tournament undoubtedly unsettled Spain, but Iniesta insisted the players have no excuse for not overcoming the hosts.

Spain, who have never beaten a host at World Cups or Euros, went ahead after 12 minutes when 38-year-old Sergei Ignashevich bundled into Spain captain Sergio Ramos at the far post, knocking a free kick in with his heel for the 10th own goal of the tournament.

"Spain have been so successful with that style of possession football but there comes a time when you have to get the ball into the strikers".

There is the immediate effect of the Lakers becoming a contender after years of mediocrity (or worse). James agreed to a four-year contract with the team worth $154 million, Klutch said.

Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov said: "We spent two years working on this and did a good job". Four hours later, Cristian Ronaldo and his European champion Portugal team lost 2-1 to Uruguay.

Akinfeev saved a awful Koke penalty to put Russia in control and with David de Gea unable to stop any of the four kicks he faced, Aspas' effort was brilliantly blocked by the Russian goalkeeper to spark chaotic celebrations.

Igor Akinfeev. Any day you save two penalties in a shootout is a good day.

"The main culprits in football are the players that are the ones on the field".
