Spain set a new record for the most successful passes in a World Cup match as they were taken to extra time by Russia in the last 16.

An early Sergei Ignashevich own goal had Spain on track to reach the quarter-finals, but Artem Dzyuba levelled from the penalty spot.

Argentina held the previous record of 703 successful passes in a World Cup match against Greece in 2010, although Opta has only collected this data since 1966.

Spain’s 779 passes smashed that record but they were unable to break the determined hosts down at the Luzhniki Stadium.
