Hats off for what exactly? Parking the bus for 120 minutes?
Russia had ONE shot to the goal the entire match and that was their penalty mid game.
Only good thing out of the entire team is the goalkeeper.
That aside, Spain looked miserable. Time to end this tiki-taka nonsense that is only good for statiatics.

Hats off for putting on a great World Cup.
You win the best way you can with what you have of course.

I HATE penalties to decide a game, worst way to finish it.
My overriding memory from this World Cup actually belongs to a small bar on a road called Ulitsa Pyatnitskaya, where I watched Russia beat former world champions Spain in a penalty shootout. The streets soon filled with Russians and became a wave of white, blue and red as they partied to the soundtrack of car horns and trumpets long into the night. Yes, France or Croatia will lift the World Cup trophy on Sunday, but there have been many other victories along the way. Thank you Russia, for hosting a truly memorable World Cup.
