The fate of the match was decided in the first half. The attitude for victory of the Chilean team was clearly more visible than that of Spain. Already when the national anthem was played, the Chilean national team together with their fans, who were in an absolute majority, repeated the Brazilian trick with finishing it a cappella, doing it no worse than the hosts of the FIFA World Cup. Hardly had the match began, when the Chilean team created two very dangerous situations in succession.

Further on, Spain managed to create dangerous situations at the opposite goal area, but not for long, and 20 minutes after the game began Eduardo Vargas scored the team’s first goal against Spain. Spain tried hard to make up for the defeat, but they catastrophically lacked accuracy. As for Chileans, they were okay with it, which was demonstrated by Charles Aranguis at the end of the first half, which ended 2-0.

The second half was perhaps the most crucial moment for the Spanish national team over the recent time. The team of Vincente Del Bocke had 45 minutes to defend its title. However, inexorable time was running out, and Spain even failed to end the game in a draw. The star of a great an invincible team of Vicente del Bosque was set at one of the most popular soccer stadiums of the world. Of the world that will now see another champion.
