There are rules in the World Cup, and one of them is that Mexico never get past the round of 16.

Some might say that it’s the end of an era, for but now, it’s simply Chile beating Spain 2-0 with goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz, which means the defending world champions won’t be in the round of 16 while Chile secure their qualification from one of the top two spots in Group B.

The best match of the World Cup so far as Australia were able for about an hour to outplay the Netherlands until they ran out of gas.
