Australia vs Spain in Curitiba.
In the final Group B matches, Australia take on Spain in Curitiba
while Holland play Chile in Sao Paulo.
Australia and Spain have never met before in international football
With both teams out of the tournament, this is as good as a
Nawaf Shukralla of Bahrain gets to blow his whistle for the first time
in the tournament.
David Villa scored for Spain, with a cute little back-heel from the the middle of the box,
in the 36th minute.
Half-time: Australia 0 - Spain 1
Fernando Torres doubled the score in the 69th minute, as poor defending leaves Iniesta in
plenty of space and more than enough time to pick his pass.
Substitute Juan Mata, on for David Villa, made it three for Spain in the 82nd minute;
after receiving the ball from fellow substitute, Cesc Fabregas.
Final Score: Australia 0 - Spain 3
1-Matthew Ryan; 19-Ryan McGowan, 6-Matthew Spiranovic, 22-Alex Wilkinson, 3-Jason
