Chile stands in the way of Spain's lofty World Cup hopes, as the European champion goes into its final Group H match on Friday needing victory to secure its spot in the knockout phase.

With both Switzerland and Honduras still in the mix for one of the two places in the last 16, Spain know it's time to live up to pre-tournament expectations or potentially go home early. Midfielder Andres Iniesta, who is available for the final group match after overcoming a right leg injury, said "we've got a clear idea about what we need to do and we're confident of reaching the next round. Nothing else is important."
