Andres Iniesta confirms Spain retirement

Andres Iniesta confirms Spain retirement

Spain had a loud claim for a penalty late in extra time, with both Ramos and Pique appearing to be pulled back during a set piece, although referee Bjorn Kuipers did not see a foul even after consulting the video assistant referee system.

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

Spain legend Andres Iniesta confirmed his retirement from global football following his nation's round-of-16 elimination to Russian Federation.

It was also the ninth time that Spain have failed to beat a host of a World Cup or European Championships.

"We were hoping for penalties", Akinfeev said.

Russian Federation came into the tournament derided by their own supporters after a string of defeats in warm-up matches but they thrashed Saudi Arabia 5-0 in their opener and then swept aside Egypt 3-1, making even their own sceptical public believe.

Emilio Butragueno, Fernando Morientes, Raul and Hierro himself have all scored five World Cup goals for La Roja.

President Vladimir Putin told Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov that nobody was going to judge his team if they lost to Spain in the World Cup last 16 on Sunday - a match they improbably won.

Ramos was involved early in pressuring Russia's Sergey Ignashevich into an own goal to give La Roja a ideal start, but the hosts equalised before the break when Artem Dzyuba converted a penalty awarded for a Gerard Pique handball.

It has been confirmed that legendary midfielder Andres Iniesta has retired from Spanish worldwide duty.

"It's a reality that this is my last game with the national team, on a wonderful stage", Iniesta told reporters after the defeat.

Tens of thousands of fans in the capital's Federation Internationale de Football Association fan fest crowded around several huge screens as they witnessed what many of them would have believed unthinkable before the match.

Huge men with painted faces held each other in bear hugs and cried tears of disbelief and joy, while others screamed the rallying cries of "Russya" and "Igor, Igor Akinfeev". "We left our pride and soul out there".

Russian Federation certainly seem to fear no one and are marching on in this World Cup, proving along the way that they are both adaptable and hard to beat.
