The host Russia have advanced to the quarterfinals with a 4-3 victory over Spain on penalty kicks on Sunday afternoon, July 1, 2018.
The two teams had to play extra-time in their World Cup last-16 clash in Moscow after they ended normal time locked at 1-1.
The 2010 world champions dominated possession against the hosts in the first half and went ahead courtesy of a Sergei Ignashevich own goal in the 12th minute.
But as the clock ticked down to half-time, the referee adjudged that Gerard Pique had handled the ball and Artem Dzyuba made no mistake from the spot.

Meanwhile, the introduction of Andres Iniesta from the bench in the second half failed to break the deadlock for Spain.
After extra time, Koke’s third penalty for Spain was saved by Igor Akinfeev who then saved Iago Aspas’s final shot.
