6:52pm

6:51pm

Another substitute, Depay has a tap in after Robben breaks on Chile. 

6:50pm

GOAL Holland

6:49pm

Meanwhile it's a dear diary moment in the Holland game as Dirk Kuyt goes down with cramp, possibly for the first time in his career.

6:45pm

Mata makes it three for the Spanish after a good ball from Fabregas. Why so late, though??

6:44pm

GOAL Spain

6:40pm

Real tussle in the Holland box - De Jong nearly puts it into his own net, comes off the arm of De Vrij before Valdiva drives it wide.

6:36pm

6:36pm

Another corner played to the edge of the box, whipped in and it's Leroy Fer of Norwich City to head home.

6:35pm

GOAL Holland!

6:35pm

Depay stings Bravo's hands with a fine effort from 25 yards.

6:34pm

Robben finds Kuyt with a corner - free header but can't direct it at goal.

6:31pm

Nearly 20 minutes to go... Will we see a goal?

6:28pm

Iniesta with a marvellous ball to Torres, who slots the ball home.

6:28pm

GOAL Spain!

6:25pm

Bravo forced into a save at the other end by Robben. Starting to warm up now.

6:24pm

Sanchez beats Lens on the touchline, drives an angled shot at goal but beaten away by the keeper.

6:23pm

Blind booked for Holland.

6:22pm

David Villa in tears as he leaves the field for Spain. Probably his last appearance for them.

6:21pm

Chronic lack of goalmouth action in this second half. Not bothered how interesting the "tactical battle is" I want a goal...

6:16pm

Sanchez tries his luck from distance - but his fierce shot flies just over.

6:13pm

He managed one there, trying to slip Lens through. Came to nothing.

6:13pm

Chile have worked very, very hard to deny Holland possession. Just spotted a stat that said Wesley Sneijder had managed only three passes so far. Amazing.

6:09pm

Still pretty slow going. Tactical it may be - but we've been spoiled thus far in the World Cup

6:04pm

Off and running again...

5:47pm

5:45pm

Diaz whips a free kick in for Chile - Guitierrez heads the ball on but it drops wide. Unmarked.

5:40pm

Robben surges through 40 yards of grass and defenders and drives a shot narrowly wide. So close to an amazing goal.

5:39pm

It's David Silva who produces a cheeky back-heel from Juanfran's cross to open the scoring in the other game.

5:38pm

GOAL for Spain!

5:35pm

De Vrij heads wide from Robben's free-kick. Closest they have got.

5:35pm

BBC website reporting we've had one shot on target in two games!

5:28pm

Back to Holland v Chile - and it's more testing and probing football from Chile. Still not been good enough in the final third, though.

5:26pm

Over in the other game, Aussie keeper Ryan makes an excellent save from Jordi Alba. Spain finally coming alive in that one.

5:25pm

Silva booked for Chile.

5:24pm

Robben runs at the Chile defence. His shot is blocked and Wijnaldum follows up with a poor effort.

5:23pm

Guitierrez makes a good connection with a set piece and drills his shot over the top.

5:22pm

Chile continue to press Holland without really carving out chances. Twenty minutes gone.

5:16pm

Over in the less significant game, Australia on top against Spain. Sensing a famous result, even if it's ultimately worthless.

5:13pm

First half chance for Chile - Vargas heading just over the top.

5:06pm

Apparently the two teams are 14th and 15th in FIFAs rankings... Goes to show how ridiculous they really are.

5:05pm

Understandably it has been fairly cagey so far.

5:04pm

Real heavyweight clash in this World Cup so far - perhaps the best two teams.

5:00pm
