Spain, who have never lost to South American opposition, will look for a win which would allow them to recover from their defeat to Holland.

Spain will play Chile in their second Group B game at the World Cup on Wednesday following their 1-5 hammering by Holland in the first match. Vicente del Bosque's men are only thinking about a win which would allow them to get back into form and continue with their dream of retaining the title.

"We have to take advantage of the opportunity that the second game brings us", said the Spain coach. History is on Spain's side, as they have never lost to a South American team, having played 10 times (eight wins and two draws). Although goal difference will come into play, the manager is not thinking about it: "Right now we just have to win, we don't have to think about goals. The challenge is the one that's always there".

Meanwhile, Chile go into the game having taken three points from Australia in the first game (3-1). Jorge Sampaoli's side are always combative and hard running, will try to stamp their authority on the defending champions and take a huge step towards the second round.
