Cesc Fabregas is left "speechless" as Spain exit the 2018 World Cup to hosts Russian Federation on Sunday afternoon.

It's the first time Russian Federation have reached the World Cup knockout rounds since the collapse of the Soviet Union and their first competitive knockout tie since they played Spain in Euro 2008.

Earlier on Sunday, Russia defeated Spain 4-3 on penalties after the match ended 1-1 after extra time and advanced to the quarterfinals, where they will face the victor in the Round of 16 match between Croatia and Denmark that is to be played later in the day in Nizhny Novgorod.

Ramos himself is not expected to retire following the shootout defeat to Russian Federation today.

"I am very proud of playing for Spain when I have the chance, but because of motivation, or because you like to focus on other things, there is some stage of your life when you need to end it in the best way".

"It's reality that today has been my last match for the national team", he told reporters.
