    A huge game for all the Spanish fans who have them winning the lot, if they fail to win and the Swiss get a win or draw they will not advance. It would be a huge upset so what do we all think will happen? I reckon they'll get beat, however with Chile looking most likely to get through their goal difference is very tight with Spain so they'll definitely give them a game. I predicted a 2-1 win to Chile

    This is the first round game I had circled before the thing started, just because of the styles of play. Now that something is really at stake, it should be a cracker. I think Spain will find a way through, 2-1.

    how funny would it be though to have spain, italy, and france all out at group play. would ruin my bracket but i would so love it in regards to US possibly winning it all. :)

    I look forward to seeing how well Alexis Sanchez do tomorrow. I hope Harry are keeping an eye on him as well....

    its been a torunament of upsets, and Sanche has been outstanding for Chile:


    it seems to me that teams with inidividual `Big Name` players this tournament are shitting the bed, and that teams who may lack the player qulaity, make up for it in team play.

    I wouldnt be surprised at all if Chile won this game by at least 2 goals. Infact, I think Chile may be one of the dark horses to keep watching.

    It will be nice to see Spain out as there a threat. Chile are no mugs do so it should be a good game.

    I predict it will be a rubbish game, probably 1-1 at the most, everyone will be falling over themselves and it will be a stop-start game.

    Don't underestimate Chile. I agree with Spursman18 - this is a big game and will be open. Spain could be another team joining Italy and France.

    Whichever team goes through no one will have an easy time playing either of them.

    Chile pressuring defensively all over the pitch, putting Spain out of sync.

    That was never a sending off. Thats a huge mistake by the referee, which could spell the end of Chile if Switzerland turn it on against Honduras.

    It'll be a big shame if Chile go out, as they've been playing some of the best football in the WC so far.

    What was the Chilean goalkeeper thinking?

    But agree, bad call on Estrada, a little trip like that and Torres falls like he's been run over by a tank. Cheat!

    I'm not sure that Torres could help it. It looked like Estrada just knocked his foot so he kicked his own heel, which probably would send him over like that running at the speed he was.

    Totally accidental though. I know he could have gone for his challenge earlier, but thats nothing to do with it. The Torres foul, well it wasn't even a foul, was never a yellow.

    As I type this Chile score!
    Big deflection left the keeper with no chance. Spain look nervous, Chile look fearless. This ones far from over.

    It did- he should have gotten his second booking for the challenge from behind on Iniesta a few minutes before.

    Chile are a joy to watch. They really throw men forward and in a world cup where every other smaller team has come to setup shop and park the bus, their commitment to attack has been refreshing.

    coming from the mid field I notice they normally have 5-7 players in their opponents' half, the most attack minded side this WC
