Spain's Koke fails to score by penalty kick during the round of 16 match against Russian Federation in Moscow on July 1, 2018. In the end, the 2010 World Cup winners were made to pay for their lack of ruthlessness. With Sergio Ramos and Sergei Ignashevich tangling at the doorstep and going to ground, the ball hit off the Russian Federation defender, whose back was to the play, and in for the own goal, giving La Furia Roja a 1-0 edge. It was the first match of the tournament to go to penalty kicks. Iniesta also scored the first spot-kick of the shootout.
James Rodriguez's fitness has been one of the key talking points ahead of England's last-16 clash with Colombia, but the Three Lions have been boosted by the news that Dele Alli is fit to face Jose Pekerman's men on Tuesday.
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. Do Spain have reason to be upset?
Russia's defence was almost superhuman as they closed down the more talented Spaniards without flagging for 120 minutes, maintaining their shape and never allowing themselves to be exposed even when they mounted a rare counterattack. But Spain were unable to conquer a curse that has haunted them since 1934. Akinfeev will make the front pages tomorrow, but his whole defensive line warrant praise.
FW Rodrigo Moreno, 7 - The fourth sub in extra time provided a rare spark of imagination with a dummy nutmeg to set himself up for forcing Akinfeev's most hard save of the game.

Temple's option is worth $8 million in 2018-19, which marks the final season of a three-year deal he signed in July of 2016. Teams that can't afford a marquee free agent can try to entice the Spurs with a trade package for the 2014 NBA Finals MVP.
LeBron James ‘Strongly Considering’ Joining Los Angeles Lakers
Rockets GM Daryl Morey has shown enormous creativity in acquiring players before, but this move might be too complex even for him. James could opt to sign a "one-and-one deal", a one-year contract for the 2018-19 season with a player option for 2019-20.

12' GOAL! Spain 1-0 Russia: Spain have taken the lead!
Yuri Zhirkov gave away a free kick when he fouled Nacho on the right and, when Aesnsio curled the cross in, Ignashevish tangled with Sergio Ramos at the far post and the ball flew in off the defender.
Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, Russia have never beaten Spain (D2 L4).
"In the second half, we were trying to defend". After Denis Cheryshev converted his spot kick, Akinfeev stopped Iago Aspas's effort with his legs to spark mass celebrations in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
Russian Federation tried to hit back when Zhirkov got down the left, but the move fizzled out as home fans at the Luzhniki Stadium tried to digest their side's early setback.
The second game of the day got off to a blistering start in Nizhny Novgorod. His shot from a tight angle forces Akinfeev into a save!
