Image result for russia vs spain
Hosts Russia reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup on Sunday when they beat Spain 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
Koke's third penalty for Spain was saved by Igor Akinfeev who then saved Iago Aspas's final shot.
Russia will face either Croatia or Denmark, who were meeting later on Sunday, in Sochi on July 7.
Both the goals came in the first half. Spain took a 12th-minute lead when veteran Russia defender Sergei Ignashevich put into his own net but Artem Dzyuba equalised from a penalty for the hosts in the 42nd minute after Gerard Pique handled in the area.
