Australia looks pretty deflated now. I think the dream's over for them.


I think the Netherlands losing because of a ball kicked to the back of a hand would have been worse.

The Netherlands can be the first team to clinch a second-round berth with a Chile win or draw; Spain faces a must-win scenario to have any chance of making the knockout stage.

We saw a lot of fireworks in the first game of the day, but the next match promises to be a good one, too.

Spain starting shakily

The champions are looking like they're going to be the first team eliminated in 2014.

The Soccerooooos are already eliminated
Wait, nevermind. Australia needs Spain to beat Chile, Netherlands to beat Chile, and destroy Spain. Uh....No.

Second, then.

The Red Fury needs a miracle in the second half to stay alive. With reports from the Portugal camp saying Ronaldo is out for the tournament, this is shaping up to be a grim World Cup for the Iberian peninsula.

Australia's only hope is if Spain wins. A Chile win eliminates both of them.

Spain's basically done. Wow.
post #282 of 1211
Spain a shadow of the team they were a couple of years ago. Casillas having a nightmare in goal, which certainly doesn't help, but what is more striking is the lifelessness of the performance. They look tired, as if they can't achieve the level of intensity that is required.

And it's worth remembering that the game Spain usually play is extremely demanding, physically. It doesn't just depend on them passing the ball around, it depends on them working hard when they haven't got the ball, pressing the opposition high up the pitch and chasing everything down. Almost all Spain's leading players have been involved in challenging for championships, reaching the late stages of the Champions League, all that stuff. I think they may just have left too much of themselves at home.

Whatever, they're out. I wouldn't have bet on that a week ago.

Is "Spana" even a word? Lol, i thought it was Espana.

Offense has ruled so far in this tournament; there was no place for tiki-taka in Brazil.

Lol, his paintbrush broke

20 minutes left of this Croatia - Cameroon match? Cameroon put themselves in a bad spot by that ridiculous hack in the back, forcing them down to 10 men. It's been a lopsided affair to say the least. 4-0, but could've been even worse. Still might be.
