  • KALININGRAD RUSSIA- JUNE 25 Iago Aspas of Spain back heels in past Monir El Kajoui of Morocco to score his sides second goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group B match between Spain and Morocco at Kaliningrad Stadium

Fernando Hierro has chosen which players will take Spain's penalties ahead of the side's World Cup last-16 clash with Russian Federation.

However, the 1998 World Cup champions have slipped to +850 on the World Cup championship odds after opening the tournament at +700, and have also fallen to defeat in all four previous meetings with Argentina while scoring just one total goal.

They will now face the host nation, Russian Federation in the round of 16.

The bracket for the knockout stage of the 2018 World Cup is officially set.

There has been some talk that England might have an easier route at the World Cup if they lose in Kaliningrad.

With 16 teams remaining, the tournament now moves to an elimination bracket, pitting teams against one another in decisive matches - the dramatic draws of the group stage will now give way to exhilarating extra time and the overwhelming anxiety of penalty shootouts.

As the tournament played out, the bracket proved to grow somewhat unbalanced, resulting in a "side of death" that features four of the top five teams in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings - Brazil, Belgium, Portugal, and Argentina - all competing for one spot in the final.

If Poland, who are yet to collect a single point in the competition, beat Japan in the other Group H clash, both Senegal and Colombia will go through with a draw.

The knockout round of the World Cup kicks off on Saturday, with France vs. Argentina and Uruguay vs. Portugal battling for their spots in the quarterfinals.

Spain faced Russian Federation for a warm-up match back in November and Sergio Ramos scored two penalties against the World Cup hosts in a 3-3 thriller.
