Spanish team lose to Chile and resignes as world champion


Group B match ended 2-0 in favor of Chileans who made an early exit in the playoffs of 2014 World Cup. Goals were scored by Eduardo Vargas (20th minute) and Carles Arangis (43rd minute). The second participant of the 1/8 finals was determined. Netherlands, which, like the Chileans, won two matches out of two at the start of the group stage, will challenge the Chileans.

The Spanish team, which did not score any points in two meetings, four years ago, won the world championship in South Africa. In 2008 and 2012, Spain was the best team at the European championships.

Final matches of the group, that do not have any tournament value, will be held on June 23: Spain will play with Austria, Dutch will meet with Chileans.

Teams of Brazil (previously won the championship five times), Italy (4 wins), Germany (3 wins), Argentina (2 wins) are among favorites of the tournament.
