Spain midfielder Isco admits that his country's exit from the World Cup on Sunday was the "saddest" day of his career.

Spain midfielder Isco has admitted that his country's exit from the World Cup on Sunday was the "saddest" day of his career.

Fernando Hierro's side took the lead against Russia thanks to a Sergei Ignashevich own goal, but were pegged back by Artem Dyzuba's penalty shortly before the interval.

Neither side could find a winner following the second half and 30 minutes of extra time, before the tournament hosts advanced with a penalty shootout victory.

"Today is the saddest day of my career," Isco posted on Instagram. "But, this is football and it doesn't stop, life doesn't stop.

"It's time to get up as we have always done and show pride in defending our country."

Spain's departure from the World Cup follows that of 2014 finalists Argentina and Germany.
