Russia vs Spain and Spain is the winner .... why?
Wow, the previous guy isn't too bright, I guess he didn't realize he was posting in a football forum.
To answer your ? I think it was Spain's ability to get around the Russian defence so well. In the previous games the Russian defence where they pull back all thier mid players and block out the forwards, has been very good at stopping the opponent offense. Russia's offence wasn't enough to keep them alive.
