They actually attacked and had over 20 shots. What style did russia have other than sit back and pray for penalties? Spain controlled possession, got in the box, and had opportunities. At least they tried to win
Their goal was a fluke (granted so was Russia's) and other than that there was like one attempt that I thought was dangerous, the rest of their attempts were weak.
Russia pushed some opportunities at least, they were supposedly over-matched in terms of talent so not sure what you expect them to do. Spain could have pushed the ball but never did, just walked it up. Their movement was non-existent off the ball, just guys standing around. If they played more aggressively, they would have scored. Not like Russia is some dominant defensive team, Spain just made them look good and gave them plenty of time to set up their defense the whole game.
