Russia's penalty shootout hero, goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, thanked God, luck and the Luzhniki Stadium crowd for bringing the hosts home safely against Spain on Sunday to reach their first World Cup quarter-final since 1970.
Akinfeev saved Koke's and Iago Aspas' spot kicks after both teams had scored two apiece in what was Russia's first ever World Cup penalty shootout, to send his team to the last eight after a lacklustre 1-1 draw over 120 minutes.
He saved Koke's effort to hand Russian Federation the advantage and then, denied Iago Aspas to awaken the subdued 78,000 crowd in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.
Their quarter-final opponents will be decided on Sunday night, when Croatia face Denmark in Nizhny Novgorod.
Suddenly, Russia are brimming with confidence and Spain look patchy at best.
Everyone inside the Luzhniki Stadium, and all those watching at home, held their breath as the referee and the VAR team checked footage for holding on Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos late on in extra time.
This Russian team, on the other hand, still have history to make and with big names falling by the wayside on an nearly daily basis, they must now be considered serious contenders for a return to the Luzhniki Stadium in the semi-final and perhaps even the final.
