:D 

Based on today’s matches, I can’t see how Uruguay beats France.  Portugal had two thirds of the possession.  Uruguay can’t win like that against France. 

What was even more curious was only one yellow card. Many more could have been called.

This is what Cavani will be showing his grandkids 30 years from now. Guy became immortal tonight.

What was the reaction in Madrid to Argentina losing?

Don’t forget, I’m among the mostly tourist crowd. Guess how the Brits reacted to Argentina’s loss...

So are Thiago and Carvajal.

Let’s hope we will not miss Iniesta!

And Putin sent in his minion too. He only attends those matches where his team has a 100# chance of winning.

Spain really should be strong enough, even without Iniesta, surely

It's not an impressive display; possession without much attack. They need to put Iniesta in.

I think the Russians will try to take this to penalties. That is the only way they will have things equal.

And who can blame them. Spain seem to have no plan B.

just as I type that Spain (Iniesta,of course) finally put one over the top for Aspas to chase, they need to mix it up a bit

They don’t even have a Plan A.

:lol: apart from pass it prettily outside the the Russian box. Fabregas on UK TV asking why they still have two defensive midfielders on the pitch. Which is a very good question

I'll still not be surprised if my favourite player doesn't score a winning header with 2 minutes left

Well, another favourite falls and the competition gets more open. It's always the most cruel way to lose. Sad for Iniesta, his last competition

It's a bitter pill but they didn't really play well in the World Cup, except for the first match.  I feel bad for Iniesta.  What a way to go out, especially when they dominated the game.  Not a bloody goal was scored from the field in this match.  The PK loss to South Korea in 2002 was more disappointing but this one is close behind.

До свидания, España!
Gritty win by Russians- probably the only way they could pull it off. Glad Spain is out- their game is unbearable to watch. 1000+ passes = 5 shots on goal hardly makes a winning formula.

At least now we know that Pique is one hell of a volleyball player. 

The mood in Madrid is somber.
