World Cup Soccer

Spain will not repeat as World Cup champion. The 2010 winners were ousted from
contention in a 2-0 loss to Chile on Wednesday in front of a largely pro-Chile
crowd in Rio de Janeiro. Spain had been routed 5-1 by the Netherlands in its
opener in a rematch of the final from four years ago. Earlier, the Netherlands
earned a 3-2 win over Australia in an entertaining back-and-forth thriller,
while Croatia eliminated Cameroon with a 4-0 rout.
