After Day 7 results, all Spain have to play for in the 2014 World Cup is pride.

The 2010 World Cup champions entered their match against Chile needing a win after suffering a brutal 5-1 beat down from Netherlands on Day 2. Spain won time of possession and shots on goal, holding the ball 63 percent of the match and attempting six shots on goal compared to Chile's four. But Spain still couldn't win.

Chile's Eduardo Vargas scored 19 minutes in, Charles Aranguiz 43 minutes in, Spain failed to answer. Only three teams—Brazil, Argentina and Germanyhad higher odds to win the World Cup than Spain, according to Odds Shark.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, no defending champ has been eliminated quicker than Spain:

While Spain are eliminated, Chile advance. But even before the match, Chile fans went crazy. They were so exited about the chance to clinch a spot in the knockout round that, to the dismay of security, they stormed Maracana Stadium.

Chile knew they could clinch because, earlier in the day, Netherlands had won again.

Australia got closer to defeating Netherlands than Spain did. Netherlands' Arjen Robben scored first 20 minutes in, but Australia's Tim Cahill only waited a minute before tying the score with a goal of his own. Australia actually took the lead with a Mile Jedinak penalty kick at 54 minutes. Goalie Mathew Ryan gave his nation a shot to win with a whopping seven saves.

But a Robin van Persie goal at 58 minutes and Memphis Depay's goal at 68 tied and took the lead back for Netherlands. They, too, will move on.

Cameroon won't. After losing 1-0 to Mexico in their opening match, they needed at least a draw on Wednesday against Croatia to stay alive.

Croatia jumped out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to an Ivica Olic goal 11 minutes in. Over 30 minutes later, Cameroon was still down and must have been frustrated. Because this happened:

Cameroon's Alex Song drew a red card for his elbow. And three minutes later, Croatia's Ivan Perisic had stretched the lead to 2-0. By the time the referee blew the final whistle, Croatia had blown out Cameroon 4-0.

Cameroon only managed to attempt two shots on goal the entire match. While they're eliminated, Croatia can advance to the knockout round with a win over Mexico or a draw and a Brazil loss to Cameroon.

Here are the updated standings and remaining fixtures after Day 7.
