Casillas mistake

A goal in the 20th minute by Eduardo Vargas was followed by a Charles Aránguiz strike in the 43rd minute. Aránguiz capitalised on another mistake by Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas for his goal.

Disbelief

When Chile had a free-kick the ball went straight to Casillas. Instead of catching it, the goalkeeper palmed the ball and it dropped to Aránguiz who scored with an excellent shot.

Stars dropped

Spain dropped Xavi Hernadez and Gerard Pique for the match and started with Diego Costa. But even when Fernando Torres came on for Costa, Spain failed to respond to Chile's 2-0 lead.

Not the first time

Spain are now the third World Cup holders in four tournaments, and the fifth overall, to be knocked out in the group stages. The previous occasions were Italy in 1950, Brazil in 1966, France in 2002 and Italy in 2010.

Hopes dashed

Spain did give their supporters some hope of a comeback, but when Sergio Busquets missed an open goal, many realised it would not be Spain's night.

Previous champions

Over the last six years Spain have won the European Championships, in 2008 and 2012, as well as the 2010 World Cup. In those tournaments they have conceded a total of six goals, one fewer than they've conceded in two matches in Brazil.
