Host nation Russia beat Spain 4-3 on penalties after extra time following a 1-1 draw in a Round of 16 tie at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday, taking them into the World Cup quarter-finals.

Spain took an early lead through a Sergei Ignashevich own goal, with Artem Dzyuba equalising from the spot after Gerard Piqué handled in the area.

The 2010 winners controlled possession with a dreary passing style from thereon in but couldn’t break down the Russians, who were relieved when a VAR penalty decision deep into extra time went their way.

Igor Akinfeev then saved from Koke and Iago Aspas in the shoot-out to send the home fans into raptures.

Here are the best jokes from Spain 1-1 Russia as the hosts send the Spaniards out of the World Cup on penalties at the Round of 16 stage following a 1-1 draw in Moscow:

Listening to the Rissian national anthem reminds me of pretty much every cold war spy film #ESPRUS #SPARUS

This game should go straight to penalties if required, shouldn't be allowed extra time. #ESPRUS

I'm hoping that the final deciding penalty is taken by Putin and he scores it while the Russian national anthem plays in the background #ESPRUS #WorldCup

Spain just couldn’t get on the same page in Russia. It’s as if they fired their manager the day before the tournament or something like that. #ESPRUS
