  • Spain beats Australia 3-0

Netherlands finished top of Group B after goals from Leroy Fer and Memphis Depay gave them a win over Chile in a tempestuous encounter in Sao Paulo.

Both teams had already qualified for the second round after starting with wins over Spain and Australia.

Norwich City man Fer headed in with his first touch in the 77th minute, before Depay tapped home in the last minute.

Chile is now likely to face Brazil in the last 16, with Louis Van Gaal’s side set to face either Mexico or Croatia.

And in the second match in the group, reigning champions Spain avoided the ignominy of finishing their World Cup campaign bottom of Group B with victory over Australia in Curitiba.

Goals from David Villa, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata prevented La Roja from suffering a third successive loss for the first time since 1991.

Villa scored the opener when he flicked in Juanfran’s cross, before Chelsea’s Torres fired in the second.

Mata slid in the third from fellow substitute Cesc Fabregas’s lofted pass, reports the BBC.
