Good Evening!

Welcome to the WION.com live updates of Spain vs Russia 
 
The suspicion is that this is where reality will catch up with Russia and the hosts will be evicted from the tournament.

Russia have played with tremendous energy so far and some of their players have shown real class – Aleksandr Golovin is suddenly on the wish list of clubs.

Spain have never had any luck against hosts. Spain have faced the hosts eight times in World Cups or European Championships and never won – losing even to South Korea.
