Andres Iniesta announces retirement after Spain’s ouster

Shock as Iniesta left out with Asensio given the nod

"We're f***** but we'll get up again and never give up".

Iniesta surprisingly started as a substitute for the last-16 tie in Moscow, but despite coming on in the second half, the former Barcelona midfielder was unable to inspire his country to victory, with La Roja going down 4-3 on penalties. "I admit that Spain is better than us in many ways and we had to choose tactics keeping that in mind". Russia's Deputy Prime Minister and chairman of the government's council on the preparations for and holding of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Vitaly Mutko has thanked all who believed in Team Russia's win over Spain in their Round of 16 match. "The thrill and the desire to continue remain, but I've always said that I would end up doing the best thing for the national team", he added.

The team looked somnolent as ever in Moscow against the 70th-ranked host, unable to break through Russia's defense and letting it all play out in a shootout following a 1-1 draw in regulation and extra time.

Veteran Andreas Iniesta, who scored the winning goal in the final eight years ago, announced his worldwide retirement after the game and the future of other players could be uncertain.
