brazil still in world cup.bad choice diego.b
Casillas, javi martinez, busquets and pedro for reina, pique, alcantara and mata. however the spain lost beacause of casillas and no other.
@xblu70 thiago is not here because of injury
best player for Brazil, Diego Costa, he did good job sinking spain
first squashed by orange then burned by red hot chilli
seriously, like costa and torres could score. I bet Villa would do better than the. Now it's maybe the time to regret for crossing out Negredo
@Redhawkz u're right.i mea how do u take a guy who is struggling at his club(torres) and a guy who is has been battling to regain fitness (costa)to the world cup than a guy who scored about 14 goals(negredo)
I don't know where all this Mata loving has come from all of a sudden. Just go watch how he played in the Confederations Cup final last year. He doesn't play good for Spain at all. I don't think he has even started a game for Spain since then. But then again if you're going to bring on someone as useless as Torres I guess you could give Mata a few minutes.
IMO, Why not substitute Casillas and make Ramos the keeper? I'm sure Ramos would be equally good. Substite Alonso and Alba for Mata, Xavi and Villa at half time. You know you have to score 3 goals against such a confident defence or otherwise you will go home with insult and humiliation. Even with a draw you can't expect to score 5 odd goals against Australia after seeing how well they played tonight. Del Bosque should be sacked immediately. Worst managing I have seen in years.
@FaizanBaig1 lol So Ramos should've played in bars and Xavi would play at leftback since Alba would've been substituted? Are would you put Busquets at leftback? You would make an awesome manager.
Spain deserved this exit. No resistance from them, looked lackadaisical, sloppy and completely out of sorts.
Undoubtedly they will recover on the world stage, but this generation is done. The Tiki-taka will continue to be effective with the right personnel.
Vidal 6.9 - Koke 7.0
@El_Duderino It's because of Tiki Taka...
Any player who performs many passes and with high accuracy would get higher mark. But here is now difference between a long 50 meter lob pass behind the defence and a 1 meter short pass to a side player.
The system is really defectious.
@alexreg he runs for all 90 minutes and between three players he don' t lost the ball. He knows how to score, to do pressing, to hold the ball and inesta kicked him that had passed.
@El_Duderino Omg, you're right. For me, this is the final proof that the rating system is flawed. WhoScored, fix this nonsense!
Xavi: "But we had possesion"
@El_Duderino this never gets old. lol
Del Bosque trolololo.
Torres? He has Villa benched and he lets Torres play ...
Mata benched, Cazorla benched, Juanfran benched, Isco and Carvajal are home.
Nice work, Vincente.
If they pay me that kind of money as Del Bosque gets to runa team with no tactic whatsoever, i'll at least play players that are not burned out.
@El_Duderino how could he have left isco and CARVAJAL of all people.he had a solid season.even arbeloa mighthave done better than ceasar
Iniesta's the only survivor of Spain's sinking.
@Mattia that's because he is a lord
These ratings are ludicrous. No Spanish player should have a rating over 6. Alonso's rating should be under 5. That's probably the worst half of football he has ever played.
Bravo was great, but come on.
Better rating than Ochoa yesterday?
@El_Duderino ochoa was way better.he was tested more and made much more vital saves.whoscored should better fix this rating issue before they end up in the drain
Lol at slow build up at the end. Tippy tappy on their way home
@alexreg You're the retard. He's telling a joke.
No defending-champion knock out has ever been as shocking as this, surely? Spain 3 times consecutive major tournament winners, and (in my opinion) still the strongest squad (by a distance), yet somehow they are out at the group stage. Incredible world cup so far!
Bye bye Spain. Del Bosque is getting sacked soon.
Espana is so hated in South America! The boo-ing is incredible!
@ASR They booed Diego Costa because he chose to play for Spain over Brazil
In which universe Ramos' rating is higher than Alexis'? Alexis humiliated Spain's defense again and again
yes, but probably not against Ramos himself
Torres in for Costa again. Brilliant move Del Bosque. Why send in David Villa when you got Torres? -sigh-
Gabi should have started, he's was amazing for Atleti last season. Koke and Juanfran too.
@Villa Gabi no doubt has quality to play for spain. I think his age is the only thing that prevented him from being selected.
only the age shouldn't be a reason - it's about quality and the will to win
Biscuits just did a Torres there
del bosque should be blamed for not using koke,santi,mata,juanfran,de gea,fabregas
@sun Mata? I highly doubt he would make things any better. Just look at the Confederations Cup final, he was awful and was subbed just after half time.
la marrón, the color of...?
Fabregas should have started both games and they should have played 4-3-3. I'm not complaining though.
In hindsight Spain should have started Xavi & possibly Fabregas? Incredible they're so close to being knocked out.
Pass more Spain, it helps you lose. =D
with martinez azpilicueta & costa its no real tiki taka
Casillas' rating so far should be 3 and Alonso's should be 2.5
2014 - the death of tiki-taka
@BigDong I thought it died after Barca's thrashing at the hands of Bayern, perhaps even before then.
@bcal Don't know because Barca still won La Liga last year. If I'm not mistaken tiki-taka has not won anything in 2014 (provided Spain don't win WC). But yeah, maybe it started with Barca's thrashing!
@ronaldinyo Don't know why someone would downvote that, I would rather they piped up and explained how any of what I said was wrong...
@ronaldinyo Some people just want to watch the world burn ;)
Casillas playing horribly again.
@Chris667 Their problem is acctually their defence. And the fact that they don't press as good as they used to.
@Ivannnnn I dont see their offense clicking either..
here you go
ایشالا جام جهانی بعدی با مربیگری محمد نصیری از گروهمون صعود میکنیم.
Also Benítez would probably be better off playing Martínez in midfield rather than centre back. Don't get me wrong, he is an amazing centre back, but I think he could make a larger impact if his task was to close or at least narrow down space. That would most likely slow Chile's attacks down by a lot. I don't see Alonso having an equal impact on Chile's Build-up in midfield.
@Cherk Who is Benitez? Last time I checked Del Bosque was still the manager.
@khonda Holy, I'm sorry. I'm terrible with names.
All the neutrals want Chile to win
@Focus of course.
Yeah, gotta side with Chile for this one as well. This may very well come back to bite me in the end, but it would just fit in perfectly with the feeling of the World Cup so far. Honestly, predicting scored at this World Cup is an extremely hard task.
Anyway, really looking forward to this match. Here's hoping it will even top 2010's clash.
3-1 for Spain
Chile to win 5-1 LOL
Spain has lost speed and some good attacking skills. It is not the Spain as we know previously.
Costa to dive again!
2-0 for Spain
@Demian clean sheet? are you high?
all or nothing match, can't wait
I don't believe that Spain won't advance to the knockout stages, so i'll not be betting anything.
Draw for Chile or a win for Chile if Del Bosque is as inflexible as his critics assert. Personally I think we'll only really know by this game, the biggest challenge during his Spain career IMO.
Spain look like Brazil,lost and uninspired. Chile will come out flying. If Spain dink around with the ball, they lose.
defending champion spain will win this one with scores 3-1 (costa 1,silva 1, and subs. Torres 1)
Draw or Chile wins
i put my money on chile.
@thedanielgrant Hey, I just came back here to say I was wrong...never thought Spain would lose twice in a row and you did a good bet, congratulations
@thedanielgrant you know it won't happen, right?
@hellreaper do you want to see the receipt?
@thedanielgrant No, I don't.
Why doesn't villa start :/
2-1 or 2-0 for Spain
