    We're done.

    After an amazing afternoon in Moscow, Russia are through to the quarter-finals.

    What a World Cup this is.

  2. Post update

    Right, that's about all the drama I can take for one lifetime.

    There is more football, so get yourself here to follow Croatia-Denmark.

    Spain 1-1 Russia (3-4 pens)

    My Russian isn't great, but I think they are quite pleased...

    Peter Collins: Watching Russia defend deep for two hours isn't great for football, but if I'm being honest, watching Spain pass it around in defence isn't great either. They didn't do enough to win the game, and penalties is a good way to split them up.

    We're open to suggestions, Alex.

    Alex Howard: Have to say after that game (I dislike Spain is a disclaimer), Fifa need to find an alternative solution to penalties. Allows teams to play negative football for 120 minutes and hope for a slice of luck - Russia a prime example

  7. If that wasn't enough...

    If you can stand it, there's another game coming up in under an hour. Join Tom Rostance for the build-up to Croatia v Denmark right here.

  8. Rate the players

    Spain 1-1 Russia (3-4 pens)

    Igor Akinfeev saved two penalties, but still can't get an average of above seven in the player rater.

    Have you say here.

    We are not getting much sleep tonight! Soak it up, not often in your career do you get a moment like this in your own stadium.

    Plenty for the Barbershop Ballers to chew over after that one.

    Rio Ferdinand

    Former England defender on BBC One

    Spain have been so successful with that style of possession football but there comes a time when you have to get the ball into the strikers.

    You have to change it up a bit. Spain got what they deserved.

  12. 'Spain couldn't break Russia down'

    Alan Shearer

    Former Newcastle striker on BBC One

    We knew Russia would look for opportunities from set-pieces and defend very well, and that is exactly what they did. The number of times we have seen Spain play stubborn sides like this and break them down with sharp and incisive passes, but today they couldn't break them down.

    Rio Ferdinand

    Former England defender on BBC One

    No matter how many times you practice in training you cannot recreate the atmosphere and the emotions of a shootout like that.

    Russia celebrate

    Spain 1-1 Russia (3-4 pens)

    Russia will meet one of Croatia or Denmark for a place in the World Cup semi-finals. That match will take place in Sochi on Saturday at 19:00 BST.

    Remember, this is in England's half of the draw. One of Russia, Croatia, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, England or Colombia will be in the World Cupfalse final. Of those teams, Switzerland are highest-placed in the world rankings.

  17. 'Spain is a better side than Russia'

    Cesc Fabregas

    Chelsea and Spain midfielder on BBC One

    I am speechless because I expected a different game today. I think Spain is a much better side than Russia. Russia had a plan which was to go to penalties and pray, and it paid off for them. Andres Iniesta doesn't deserve to go out like this, in what could be his last game for Spain.

  18. Post update

    Spain 1-1 Russia (3-4 pens)

    Iago Aspas, who took the final spot-kick, took a massive run-up. It just looked like he would miss. What a shambles of a World Cup for Spain. Manager sacked on the eve of the tournament, then a curious, tepid performance here.
