World Cup Group H: Spain tops Chile, both advance

Spain defeated Chile, 2-1, but both advanced to the knockout round because Switzerland could only manage a 0-0 tie with winless, goal-less Honduras.

Spain and Chile finished tied atop Group H with six points each, but Spain wins the group by virtue of its goal-differential edge (plus-2) over Chile (plus-1). Spain will face Portugal in the battle for the Iberian Peninsula on Tuesday at 2:30. Chile will face Brazil on Monday at 2:30.

I hope no one throws a vuvuzela near the Chilean goalkeeper . . .

Anyone else notice how Christian Ronaldo poses before kicking each set peice. It's like he is recreating the Nike commerical. Just waiting for Homer to show up...Doh!

Ronaldo always does that, but it was funny listening to Martin Tyler chuckle at him looking at himself in that stance on the big screen...
That would be kind of bizarre.

No clever nickname for Chile v. Brazil?? How about: "Winner gets Bolivia".
