WORLD CUP OPEN THREAD: DAY SEVEN

Clive Rose

Spain v. Chile: DO OR DIE

The reigning World Cup champions got humiliated in their first game of the competition, enduring a 5-1 BEATEMDOWN at the hands of the Dutch.  Up next?  A must-win game against a tricky Chile side.  Good luck, La Roja... you're gonna need it.

In other action, the Dutch will attempt to consolidate their hold of Group B by taking on an Australia team that is not very good at all.  And in the late game, Cameroon and Croatia try to rebound from losses in their opening matches.  Another loss will see their hopes of making it out of the group be extinguished, while a win would give them a fighting chance to make it out.
