Quotes

“I’m very happy with the effort the players put in. We worked very hard on how we might beat Spain and we managed it, but now we have to face the Netherlands. It’s an important match that will decide who wins the group. The idea is not to look any further ahead than the next game and to take things step by step,” Jorge Sampaoli, Chile coach

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.

The final whistle sounds.

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.
