    Spanish Steppes: Spain v Russia

    Spain need a rethink after the Morocco game, which cast a cloud over their trophy prospects. Russia could do a rope a dope like the Swiss in 2010. Spain should win but I have doubts and fears.

    I was in adidas earlier and saw that as well as the current Spain shirt they were selling a replica of the one that inspired it, multicoloured badge and all. That seemed to be the only nation that they were doing replicas of the the replica.

      Russia with five defenders. Good luck with that.

        If they're going to be trying to win on the counter attack they need to change the dosage/prescription from one which promotes stamina to one that favours speed

          Iniesta will start on the bench

            Ditto Cheryshev - to accommodate that blockade at the back. It should be noted, however, that his dynamic performance against the Saudis was from the bench.

            Obviously, Spain are something of a different kettle...

              They may have played one of the best games, but Portugal and Spain have been among the most boring to watch. Often are for me.

                  Crude tackle leads to soft goal - 1-0 Spain.

                      Would have been a pen had he not scored?

                              Have Russia got a Plan B for conceding early?

                                Six defenders?

                                  I know I'm biased but it looked like Ramos was trying to manufacture a penalty as much as him being fouled

                                    Not sure about that. I mean, I can understand folk wanting to nail Ramos, but perhaps not to the extent of ignoring the entire play...

                                      Yes I loathe Ramos as the next man but if that hadn't gone in it would have been a stonewall penalty

                                        And a red, so Russia maybe even got away a bit.

                                          That goal should do more to embarrass defenders out of rugby tackling at corners than a score of penalties

                                            Can't believe I used to hate Ramos. What a man.

                                              Dzyuba is not the most elastic, lithe player I have seen in my life.

                                                Naive defending if you ask me, Brian.

                                                  Have Spain gone back to being boring after their surprisingly interesting start to the tournament?
