what is a mexican wave?

The wave (known as the Mexican wave in the anglosphere outside North America) is an example of metachronal rhythm achieved in a packed stadium when successive groups of spectators briefly stand, yell, and raise their arms. Immediately upon stretching to full height, the spectator returns to the usual seated position. (wikipedia)

Australia 2-3 Netherlands match report: Depay winner seals Dutch comeback over spirited Australia

Jun 18, 2014 19:07
By Bruce Archer


Tim Cahill's wonderstrike was not enough for the Socceroos as Louis van Gaal's men won a see-saw game in Porto Alegre

Australia-v-Holland - WORLD CUP 2014 - World Cup Football | Fifa Soccer
Arjen Robben of the Netherlands shoots and scores his team's first goal past goalkeeper Mathew Ryan of Australia

Holland followed up their huge win over Spain with a more modest, but just as thrilling, victory over Australia to take full control of Group B.

The Dutch move onto six points and are just about guaranteed a place in the last 16 after goals from Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie and the winner from Memphis Depay.

Australia-v-Holland - WORLD CUP 2014 - World Cup Football | Fifa Soccer
lining up before the match

Tim Cahill struck for a second game running with an incredible - Marco van Basten-esque - volley to level after Robben's opener and Australia then took the lead briefly through Mile Jedinak's 54th minute penalty.

But van Persie followed up his brace against Spain with another effort, before Depay finished the match with 22 minutes to go, scoring from a 20-yard effort which keeper Mathew Ryan should have done better with.

Australia, without a point, are just about out and will miss Cahill for their final match with Spain having picked up his second booking of the tournament - Van Persie will also miss the final round of group games having done the same.

Adios España: Chile knock holders off their perch

Miguel Delaney
Wednesday 18 June 2014


Casillas-1 - WORLD CUP 2014 - World Cup Football | Fifa Soccer
Iker Casillas looks on in despair

Too tired, too slow and too few points. Spain’s World Cup is over, and an era ends. Vicente Del Bosque’s team have become only the fifth defending champions in history to go out in the group stage, but the first the lose their opening two games and thereby the quickest to ever go home.

They are also the first team eliminated from the 2014 tournament. That sums up the scale of the fall almost as much as the poverty of their play. Chile, as they promised before the game, have made history.

The South Americans also consigned Spanish dominance to the past with a display that brilliantly outpaced their famous philosophy and made it look brutally outdated.

The 2010 World Cup winners joined the exclusive club of teams who have won the World Cup and gone out at the next in the group stage after their 2-0 defeat to Chile


Joe Krishnan
Wednesday 18 June 2014


World champions Spain are out of the 2014 World Cup following their 2-0 defeat to Chile, with goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz sending home Vicente Del Bosque's side. But they are certainly not the first reigning champions to leave the competition early.

After their historic 1-0 win over the Netherlands four years ago in South Africa, La Roja experienced humiliation of the highest level after shock defeats to the Netherlands and Chile.

Many have commented that it is the end of 'tiki-taka' as we know it, but Spain are certainly not the first and won't be the last to relinquish their crown at the first attempt of defending it.

In fact, Spain join two other nations in the 21st Century who have crashed out at the group stage the tournament after winning the World Cup - France in 2002 and Italy in 2010.

But Spain are the only champions to have lost their first two games the tournament after winning it.

Here are the other nations who went from the highest of highs to humiliation within two tournaments.

Italy (1950)

The Italians won the 1938 World Cup but, due to World War II, were unable to defend their crown until 12 years later. And even then, they were severely weakened by the fact that some members of their squad were killed in the Superga air disaster the year before the tournament started. They were put in a group with Paraguay, Sweden and India (who later withdrew), and lost their opening game 3-2 to Sweden, who went through.

Brazil (1966)

Even with the likes of Pele and Tostao in the side, Brazil could not live up to the expectations of them and subsequently failed to make it past the group stages in the 1966 World Cup. Their group, containing Hungary, Portugal and Bulgaria, was one filled with goals, and Brazil's 3-1 defeat to Portugal condemned them to failure in England, who went on to win their first and only World Cup.

France (2002)

A shock 1-0 defeat to Senegal in the opening game of the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan showed a sign of things to come for France. After their incredible 3-0 win over Brazil in 1998, the weight of expectation proved to be too much for the reigning champions. They ended the tournament winless after being defeated by Denmark and a goalless draw with Uruguay which saw Thierry Henry infamously sent off.

Italy (2010)

A group that Italy were more than capable of getting out of turned into their worst nightmare as Marcelo Lippi's side were eliminated from the World Cup. Their opponents - Paraguay, Slovakia and debutants New Zealand - surprised the Azzurri, with the latter side picking up a 1-1 draw. A 3-2 defeat to Slovakia compounded Italy's exit, although France's equal level of underachievement meant that Italy's poor showing went somewhat under the radar.

Spanish Press Reacts To Elimination, 2-0 Loss To Chile: 'Unbelievable Ridicule'

By Alberto
June 18 2014

This week ought to be a time of celebration for Spain. King Felipe VI is being crowned Thursday, after the official abdication of his father, King Juan Carlos I, on Wednesday. But instead, the country will be thinking about something else that happened on Wednesday -- something that will also go down in the history books, but for a far less joyous reason: Spain’s early elimination from the World Cup after a 2-0 loss to Chile.

It’s only the fourth time in the soccer World Cup’s 84-year history that a defending champion goes home unceremoniously after an elimination in the first round. And Spain had gone to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup as a favorite, widely thought to be in a good position to defend the 2010 title it won in South Africa. On Wednesday, Spain should have been celebrating a victory against the far less vaunted Chilean team.

Instead, the Spaniards are out of the cup. Not even a lopsided victory next week in their third and final match, against Australia, would net them enough points to advance to the round of 16. They are now dead last in their group of four. The Chileans, who had won their first match against Australia by 3-1 last week, are already sure of advancing --  as is the fourth team in the group, the Netherlands, which humiliated Spain 5-1 last week and then beat Australia 3-2.
