Spain will be looking to reestablish its World Cup title claims when it meets Honduras on Monday, following the shock defeat by Switzerland.

Anything less than a win for one of the pre-tournament favorites could see Spain going home early.

The 1-0 loss to Switzerland was only Spain's second defeat in 49 matches and means that the team cannot afford to slip up again in its remaining two Group H fixtures.

Unsurprisingly, Spain has encountered a torrent of criticism following the Swiss defeat, much of it directed at the coach Vicente del Bosque.
