Spain Bow Out Of The World Cup

The end of the road for La Roja

The end of the road for La Roja

The current world champions have been eliminated from the world cup after only two games. The Spainiards suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Holland in their first game and had to bring their A-game against Chile to scrap themselves into the last 16.

That was not the case as Chile came out gun blazing and took a 2-0 lead into the half-time break, Spain came back with more desperation than anything as the inevitable happened. The game ended in defeat with the tiki-taka Champions bowing down without honor.

Iker Casillas’ goal keeping is the main factor that costs them the games, particularly the game against Chile as his horrendous handling was exposed by the South Americans.

Spain was the first world class casualty at Brazil 2014, who will be next? Uruguay, England or Portugal? I guess only time will tell.
