Spain’s shocking exit: 1056 passes, 1013 touches, 0 chemistry

Spain’s shocking exit: 1056 passes, 1013 touches, 0 chemistry

The Spanish playmaker came off the bench against Russia in the second half (67') and converted the first penalty for Spain before seeing his team losing 3-4 after heroic performance from Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev who save 2 penalties.

Spain's King Felipe sat alongside Medvedev and Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino, then went downstairs to visit the national team near their dressing room to give words of encouragement after they crashed out of the World Cup.

Spain completed 1056 passes across the 120 minutes of play in their match against Russian Federation, and also managed 1013 touches of the ball in regulation time.

Peskov did not say whether Putin planned to attend the quarter-final.

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid follow just behind with 18 and 13, respectively, and the first Spaniard to ever find the net at a World Cup was none other than Athletic Club's Alejandro Irarragorri in 1934, the nation's debut appearance.

"We were hoping for penalties", Akinfeev said.

Sweden seeks win over Mexico with off-field issues behind them
Sweden had the better of the goalless first half and took the lead five minutes into the second half. Mexico and Sweden face each other in the final round of games of the group stages.

Remarkably, though, Stanislav Cherchesov's charges are now just two wins away from the World Cup final. The Vatreni were back on level terms soon afer through Mario Mandzukic, but neither side was unable to land a decisive blow before the end of the 90 minutes.

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.

Akinfeev kept out efforts by Koke and Iago Aspas as the 2010 champions - unbeaten in their previous 23 games - became the latest big-name casualty to exit the tournament after Germany, Argentina and Portugal.

"This is a great victory for us, for the whole country, the soul of the country", Mikhail Sitner, 34, from Moscow, said. And then we drew Spain, I thought everything would end.

Rubiales, who made the decision to remove Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup, stood by his move. I've already said it a lot of times.
