Spain crashed out of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil with a shock 0-2 defeat to Chile at the Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday. After a 1-5 thrashing by the Netherlands in their opening game, Spain now have only one game left to play in Brazil, a meaningless one against Australia. Chile and the Netherlands, in turn, have both secured their place in the knock-out stage of the World Cup and will battle it out for the first spot of Group B on 23 June.

Spain crash out
The praise heaped on Chile after their victory is fully deserved. The team pressed relentlessly high up the pitch, forcing Spain into making mistakes, and pounced on their chances, scoring twice.
