Russia Draw 3-3 with Spain in International Friendly; Sergio Ramos Scores Brace

Russia drew 3-3 with Spain in a pulsating international friendly on Tuesday, as the hosts of the 2018 FIFA World Cup fought back in Saint Petersburg. Jordi Alba gave the visitors an early lead in the ninth minute, and Sergio Ramos doubled the advantage from the penalty spot after 35 minutes at the Krestovsky Stadium. However, the Russians fought back as Fyodor Smolov found the back of the net four minutes before half-time.  The home crowd were on their feet as Russia pulled level through Aleksey Miranchuk six minutes into the second half, but Spain won a debatable penalty just seconds later, allowing Ramos to reclaim the lead. Smolov had fans on their feet with 20 minutes left to play, hammering the ball past goalkeeper David De Gea with a sumptuous strike to make it 3-3.                  This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.
