The 34-year-old announced he had played his last game for his country following his country's shock penalty-shootout defeat in Moscow, adding: "Sometimes, the end is not as you dreamed it".

The midfielder started on the bench against Russian Federation, with Fernando Hierro opting to leave him out of the starting XI in favour of Asensio.

The host team won an astonishing upset victory over Spain by prevailing in a penalty shootout.

"We could not do more - we gave everything".

Spain had a loud claim for a penalty late in extra time, with both Ramos and Pique appearing to be pulled back during a set piece, although referee Bjorn Kuipers did not see a foul even after consulting the video assistant referee system. However he defended the team after they controlled the match before losing on penalties. "He is one of the best players in Spanish football history - I can't say anything else".
