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.

An own goal from Sergei Ignashevich gave Spain the lead after just 11 minutes, with the Russian veteran diverting the ball into his own net as he wrestled Sergio Ramos to the ground from a free-kick.

"Sometimes the endings are not as one dreams", said Iniesta, who scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final and won two European Championships in 2008 and 2012.

An error in Spain's defense let Russian Federation level in the 41st, after Gerard Pique's raised arm blocked a header by Artyom Dzyuba at a corner.

The German dressing-room divide might explain their World Cup exit
Low said he took responsibility for the failure, yet just 12 months ago he could do no wrong. But the team never really seemed to recover from its opening 1-0 loss to Mexico .

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.

41' GOAL! Spain 1-1 Russia: Russia are level!

Nearly 20 minutes into the second half, Russian Head Coach Stanislav Cherchesov opted for a reshuffle in the squad sending in midfielder Denis Cheryshev in place of Alexander Samedov.

Lamenting his side's failure to make more of their chances, he said it was a great shame two years of hard work and good results had come to an end "in a shoot-out which is basically a lottery and we weren't lucky". We don't like this type of structure with three central defenders but they trusted me and I spoke with every player individually.

Aspas was ready to go into celebration mode - he knew right away that Akinfeev guessed wrong.
