You got to do with what you got ...Should not blame them...
That is true
Bloody hell, what a result!
I hope so.
And I hope it is Colombia!
They had outrageous help from the ref. That was a drop dead obvious PK at the end.
I fault the people decrying spain for being boring when Russia was the epitome of anti-football. THOSE people are ********ing morons.
I have always mixed feeling when the "better team" still loose due to an "all defense" strategy. I hope we will not have to many game like this going forward. It is only "interesting" ( to an extent ) if it is your national team playing.
I hated when Greece or Portugal won the Euro with that kind of strategy ( it felt underhanded ) .
Still penalties can be fun once in a while, congrats to Russia ! They made the best of what they had.
The only way to stop it is to call penalties for clear penalties. defend the whole time? You better be spotless.
Bull..spain just didnt have the quality to open russia up..the better team won
The ref favors Spain from the beginning to end...That's the only break they got...
They hacked the goalie's leg in that last penalty.
I called this earlier guys!
So garbage Russia qualified.
Well, both England and Sweden have been to the final before...
I'm going off you Homie, big time.
Badly kicked penalties in both sides. Can't believe De Gea could not stop any of those down the middle penalties.
We may have a new world cup finalist on that side of the bracket!
Well....that half of the draw is there for the taking. Gonna be interesting, given that Croatia and Colombia have been playing some terrific football.
Russia is a team that got spanked by Uruguay lol. They’ll be brutally destroyed by athletic teams like France and even Brazil could do well.
Russia came to play, they just didn't come to attack.
Sooooooo 13 teams left and 4 are in FIFA Top 10 World Rankings.
What an amazing game by Russian football team and that last penalty save by Igor Akinfeev This world cup is really a lot surprising Germany, Spain, Argentina, Portugal are all out
De Gea has always been trash for his NT.
I agree - I said way back in this thread that Spain had zero pace like Germany and would have to grind this out. They couldn't. Russia would get torn apart by France or Brazil
Tikk Takka is boring and doesnt work anymore. Hope they learn it from now on.
Spain did nothing as well..keeping the bal possession in middlefield against a team who is all in defense, is not a bug deal.
If Spain was that good to deserve to win, they would have scored a goal and win. They didnt, and they had plenty of time for it.
clearing the way for a win by Russia. If Croatia or Denmark think they've got a chance of getting past Russia, well, that's cutely naive!
