2010 FIFA World Cup: Day Six Review
If there's one story from day six that won't be forgotten, it's Spain's loss to Switzerland.
The three matches were:
Honduras vs Chile
Spain vs Switzerland
South Africa vs Uruguay
Honduras 0-1 Chile
Chile secured their first World Cup win in 48 years with a comfortable 1-0 win over Chile.
The match could've looked a lot more one-sided if it wasn't for Honduran goalkeeper Noel Valladares.
Chile's attacking style of football created plenty of chances, but the goal had a somewhat lucky element.
A deflection from a shot by the impressive Beausejour was enough to give Chile the win.
The whole team were impressive going forward with multiple chances, including a good free kick and a useful long-range effort.
Chile could've added to their lead with two chances going begging after half time.
Chile will hope not to slip up against Switzerland as Spain did in order to progress from their group.
Spain 0-1 Switzerland
One of the giants of world football and a team widely viewed as one of the favourites for the tournament fell to lowly Switzerland.
Despite dominating possession and having multiple chances, Spain fell behind shortly after halftime after a long ball found Fernandes, who tapped the ball in as Casillas failed to make it back in time.
The game continued in the same manner it had before the goal. Xabi Alonso rattled the crossbar with a great effort from outside the box.
Despite the addition of Torres, Pedro, and Navas, Spain couldn't find a breakthrough, and Spain slipped to a loss.
Spain will need to win their next two matches in order to have a chance of winning their group.
South Africa 0-3 Uruguay
Uruguay made up for their under-par performance against France with an impressive display against the hosts.
Diego Forlan saw a deflected effort loop over the South African goalkeeper to open the scoring.
After South African goalkeeper Khune was sent off for a poor challenge, Forlan doubled his tally and the lead with a solid penalty.
The scoring was rounded off after Pereira nodded home a simple chance courtesy of a perfect cross.
Uruguay have given themselves the best possible chance to progress and will hope to continue their impressive form.
