TWO DOWN, ONE TO GO
We're all finished after an engaging match at the iconic Maracana, but there's one more game still to be played today. Cameroon and Croatia meet to complete Group A's second round of games, after Brazil and Mexico's goalless draw yesterday. The Global Stadium is open, so #joinin for the final World Cup game of the day.
WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
Our FIFA.com Club members have been discussing the game that's just finished and here's what a couple of them had to say:
Congratulations Chile!!!!!! Way to go! =)
It's been a great six years, Spain. Thanks for the memories. As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Time to pick up the pieces, prepare for the next friendlies as well as the 2016 Euro Qualifiers. Viva Espana!
The scene amongst the Spanish support is one of pure desolation and disbelief. It truly is the end of an era as the side that have dominated world football for the best part of six years are eliminated after two games of their World Cup title defence.

The Chilean players remain on the pitch to salute the fans, some waving Chile scarves thrown to them by their supporters. It is a truly remarkable scene after the side's first competitive victory in the Maracana at the fifth attempt.
There are scenes of despair on the Spanish bench but the Maracana reverberates with the sound of "Ole ole ole, Chile Chile Chile!" as their fans drink in their astounding achievement.

FULL TIME: Spain, the World Cup holders, are eliminated along with Australia. Chile's first ever win against Spain gives them their ticket to the knockout stages along with the Netherlands. Vargas stunned the Maracana with the opener before Aranguiz rubberstamped the victory. Vicente Del Bosque's side had several chances to get back into the game but couldn't convert. The champions are heading home.
