Full coverage: World Cup 2014

In Group A, Croatia has eliminated 10-man Cameroon from the World Cup with a 4-0 victory. And in Group B, world champion Spain were looking to bounce back from their 5-1 opening defeat to the Netherlands as they took on Chile. But instead it was more humiliation for the Spanish as Chile recorded their second victory of the tournament to ensure that they will join the Netherlands in the next round.

Mario Mandzukic scored two goals to keep Croatia in the mix at the games. Mandzukic returned to the team after sitting out the opening loss to Brazil through suspension. Ivan Perisic also scored one goal and made another for Ivica Olic. 
Cameroon was reduced to 10 men after midfielder Alex Song was given a red card for elbowing Mandzukic in the back in the 40th minute. Chile took the lead in the 19th minute through forward Eduardo Vargas. Just moments before half-time Charles Aranguiz doubled the lead to seal a 2-0 win. It means Spain, now have only one more match to play in this year’s World Cup a now meaningless encounter with Australia in their final group game next week. Earlier, the Netherlands defeated Australia 3-2 in the other Group B match. The Dutch took the lead in the 20th minute with a solo effort from star winger Arjen Robben. But Australia battled back just a minute later, grabbing an equalizer through striker Tim Cahill. A second half penalty from Mile Jedinak then gave Australia hope of an upset. But goals from Robin Van Persie and Memphis Depay sealed victory for the Netherlands.
