KO in 15 minutes am closing pre-match and opening up this thread.
I have faith.
Vamos Las Roj... er, Los Azules!
Bad header by Torres, but this ball is hard to head in.
Aahhh so close Torres!
with Chile playing a 3-3-1-3 formation, would it not make sense to play two wingers, like Navas and Pedro for instance? all this playing through the middle is not going to work
Going fast with the yellows for Chile, can't say one of them was undeserved.
Stupid move by the keeper.
Jesus, he hit it really well. Didn't even stop to control the ball, right away with the kick towards the goal and with this ball.
I guess that's why teams don't come out attacking against Spain. Get hit on the counter.
Yeah. Given this new ball I waited until the ball actually hit the back of the net before I began celebrating.
Giving the ball to Torres equals attack ruined. Worse than normally, he is highly out of form.
Good save by Pique who had to sprint back after that corner.
And a sending off for Chile!!
Furia Haters, beware!
The Chileans are losing their heads, they are still through though. Stay calm people.
Finally the control in the midfield again, which looked inexistant in the beginning.
Harsh call on Estrada. Torres tripped himself.
He should have been sent off earlier with a 2nd yellow card though, with that foul where the Spanish players got around the ref. The referee pardoned the yellow.
I thought he caught Torres but not intentionally.
Should have been a yellow there for Ponce for stepping on Xabi with his studs.
Again, I don't see any undeserved yellow cards so far.
3rd Round of Group H
Chile 0-2 Spain
0-1 : Villa 26'
0-2 : Iniesta 37'
Re: 3rd Round of Group H
Chile started off the better team, I think Villa's goal killed their spirit.
Juanele, you mean Bravo's f-up.
After that though, Spain have looked more the part of the Euro 2008 champs.
Torres needs to be subbed. He's downright awful.
