Group H

Little did we know. However, before it all started, I wrote,

Reigning European Champions and red hot favourites Spain should coast through this group.  I guess it'll then be up to the others, Switzerland, Chile and Honduras to try and hold onto their coats tails as they sail through.  But again, we shall see.

Spain had the shock of their lives when they lost 1-0 to the Swiss in their first game. However, a game against Honduras allowed them to recover and get going on the right path. Chile on the other hand were good value for their opening win against Honduras and then deservedly beat Switzerland in their second game to take their tally to six points from 6, albeit with a GD of just +2. So we were set for a fascinating pair of final games. Even having scored 6 points already Chile weren't guaranteed a place and the Spanish and Swiss on three points each, both knew that a win would bring goal difference and who knows, even goals scored into play. However, Switzerland had probably already had their World Cup in beating Spain, so performed poorly against Honduras, as Spain took first place with a 2-1 win over Chile.

  • Switzerland 0-0 Honduras Swiss confirm their position as Europe’s ‘most boring nation’.
  • Spain 2-1 Chile Euro Champs through as Torres misfires.
  • Spain 2-0 Honduras Villa at the double but it could have been three.
  • Chile 1-0 Switzerland Chile move to six points, but have they scored enough goals?
  • Spain 0-1 Switzerland Poom tang! There you blummen well go!  The European Champions and strong favourites for WC2010 went down to a very well organised Swiss team at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.  Of course Spain had the possession and of course they had the chances, but the point of this game is to put the ball in the ...
  • Chile 1-0 Honduras A sparkling game this one.  That Chile only scored the one goal is down to profligacy in front of goal, some good goalkeeping and a certain amount of bad luck.  Theirs was an interesting approach. Too many teams have approached their first game in this World Cup with a ‘try no to lose’ attitude.  Chile’s ...
