Silva wants Spain to use speed at World Cup to beat Russian Federation

Heavy favorites Spain still offer plenty of ways to make money

Iniesta announced that it was his final match in Spain colours. Spain's passing record was trolled on social media by fans during and after match.

Having played more than 1,000 passes but never got to threaten the Russians in the box, the Spaniards made it look easy for the hosts, who are the lowest-ranked team in the tournament.

When the journalist persevered, Hierro said: "Statistics are there to be broken". "If we play very fast up front, we'll have more options and generate spaces in which we can hurt them".

"It's about tomorrow at 5pm, that's it".

Fernando Hierro's Spain totally dominated the match at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, hogging 74 percent of possession, but created few clear-cut chances and buckled under pressure when it mattered most. But a convincing 3-0 defeat to Uruguay suggests Russian Federation are unlikely to be a match for Spain.

Spain followed suit as Rodrigo replaced Asensio, and the former went closest to ending the impasse, sprinting towards goal after a clever dummy only for Akinfeev to claw his shot away before the rebound from Koke was blocked.

Godwin says on Facebook that Todd is recovering and is "being a normal puppy". As the reptile lunged at her, Golden Retriever Todd jumped to her aid.

"I was lucky and that's it, this is a success for the whole Russian team, we should not highlight anyone".

Instead, Spain seemed entirely incapable on increasing the pace as, minute by minute, home hopes grew from a long-shot dream, through a gradual realization that their highly-ranked rivals were not actually that risky, to eventual delirious celebration. In the end it was a tough group and Portugal also struggled. "It's a hard moment, one we have been through on various occasions - we weren't capable of going that little bit extra".

Russia, on the other hand, have already changed people's minds. "The national team has given everyone a party, but that's history, we want something more", he said. However, a dismal performance on the final day of group stage game when they lost 3-0 to Uruguay who went on to top the group.

"We have been working after each game and we have some time now to check who is ready to do what (against Croatia)". Football is about results, and they mark everything. Ramos said. "We have had this philosophy for many years, and comparisons with our best national team of all time are hard". But we believed in our team!

"I had to persuade them this was the only way (against Spain) as they don't like this system", said the coach, whose side also had one shot on target in two hours of football. It does not depend on us, but we would not mind if Hierro continued.
