Chile 1 - 0 Switzerland

Nice goal. Excellent pass and nicely headed in by Gonzalez.

I guess this was inevitable. Switzerland has hardly been near the goal in the second half and Chile just kept on attacking which finally resulted in a goal.

Like I said earlier, I don't think Spain is happy with this since Chile won't need more than a draw in the last match to become group winners. Chile being the second best team in the group (on paper), it's gonna be very tough for them.

Wow, these were two very nice games..
Portugal raped the poor Koreans, and, to be honest, they deserved it..their defence was just...not there in the second half, and they barely had a couple of good chances during the whole game..
7 goals by 6 different players..that's pretty impressive..
The other one was radically different, with Switzerland being pretty solid until that red card (which was completely uncalled for)..Chile did deserve their goal, especially after the one they scored got cancelled (although the second one might've been slightly offside, dunno)..
The referee apparently had fun spamming yellow cards in the second match...it was fun when he drew out a card and showed it to both players involved in the foul...

Koman and face the music.

The fact that his performance have received a poor rating made it a foregone conclusion. At least he'll get to blow calls back home in Mali.

It's amazing to think the same Korean team that played Brazil to a 2-1 loss could just let themselves get walked over so badly. It's embarrassing for them. Portugal is by no means 7 goals better than North Korea. Now all I have to hope for is Honduras pulling the shocker of the tournament and beating Spain to eliminate them. Oh I can dream...

it's almost as if they used all of their skill against Brazil and completely lost motivation after the first half against Portugal.
i feel kinda sorry for them. and i hope Kim-Jong doesn't destroy their houses or something...

A draw would be fine too, as I doubt Switzerland is going to lose against Honduras.

But with Chile winning the former match, Spain is already in a difficult position since they (most likely) HAVE TO win against Chile in match 3 to pass the group, while Chile only needs a draw to be the group winners.

Spain just scored their first goal by the way. I hope this will be all.

Villa totally deserved a red card there for slapping that guy in the face. Too bad the ref didn't see it, but I suppose the Fifa will ban him from the next game.

Also, good to finally see a player who does not overact and pretend that his eyes are got stabbed out.

Yeah, they just have to ban him. That was just stupid.

Also, the ref is doing a good job so far, even though he didn't see that slap from Villa. After all this bad refereeing in the past few games it's nice to see a ref with who's doing a good job for a change.

It's because he shouldn't even have been be on the pitch anymore. :P

If Spain continues to play like they did today, trying to carry the ball into the net, they won't make it very far. They just have to learn to shoot at the goal instead of passing the ball around in front of the penalty box.

I think Honduras made a good game. Sure, they didn't create any scoring chances whatsoever, but they played a pretty good defence most of the time and sometimes they also had some nice scenes in the offence but Spain just was about out of their league.

They have been up against two very defensive sides so far, which clearly doesn't suit their style of passing play. Once they take on a side that are actually interested in scoring goals I suspect there will be much more space to pass through them and play the style of football that they have been.

It will be very interesting against the ultra-attacking Chile side- that could be a crazy game with goals at both ends. I certainly expect Spain to progress with a win there now, so fingers crossed Honduras can hold the boring Swiss and allow Chile through as well- it would be terrible to see Switzerland bore their way through above such a fantastic attacking side.

They seriously need someone with BALLS in that team and start shooting some BALLS at the net or they won't get very far in ths WC (as always).

Yeah England won't win. In fact they're in danger of not making it past the group stage.

It's amazing that such a stacked lineup couldn't produce more goals. It seemed like the only person taking chances at the goal was David Villa and the rest were just dancing around in the box.

I think Honduras made a good game. Sure, they didn't create any scoring chances whatsoever, but they played a pretty good defence most of the time and sometimes they also had some nice scenes in the offence but Spain just was about out of their league.

Honduras did play very well defensively. All of the extremely biased commentators from the USA were shocked that Spain didn't score more and kept bad-talking Honduras even though they played very well defensively. I truly think the Honduran team should be very proud of the way they played today and of their refusal to give up.

A bunch of unexpected stuff's happening in this cup. They have the potential to win, they just need to..well, improve. It's possible I guess.

I wish I didn't giggle slightly at Molotov's post.

Also, I die slowly as British tabloids are used to encapsulate a British identity.

Not just that one putrid Sun bit, generally.

Because I'm White and middle-class, and thus can afford to die slowly on such selfish accounts.

But anyway, please, football. Spain should've done much better with Honduras, as well as the latter side defended for the most part. As already said, passing and 'skill' is one thing, but if this group ends up being ultimately decided by goal difference, we may just have a major upset on our hands. Unlikely maybe, but still. I really hope Chile make it through. Despite the scorelines, they've been another genuine attacking team. While not wishing any ill will towards Spain, Spain-Brazil would be mighty interesting...

I hope the US at least beats Algeria on Wednesday and goes on to the next round of matches. Though I wouldn't bet money on them making it much further. Nevertheless, GO USA!.
