2014 World Cup: Chile sends Spain packing after thrashing them 2 - 0

World Cup holders Spain have crashed out of the tournament after they were stunned 2-0 by a brilliant Chile side on Wednesday night.

The defending champions were aiming to become the first nation to retain the title since Brazil in 1962. But, after losing their opening match 5-1 to the Netherlands they surrendered their crown in a cauldron of noise in the Maracana.

Their elimination means they are the fifth defending champions to fail to progress from the group stage at the World Cup.

Spain must now contest a dead rubber against Australia on 23 June, while Chile and Netherlands meet in an encounter that will determine who finishes top of Group B.
