Chile is leading Australia 2-1 at halftime of their World Cup opening round match in Brazil after two quick strike from Alexis Sanchez and Jorge Valdivia. Tim Cahill’s headed goal brought Australia back into the game.
World Cup Group B provides what looks like the best game of the 48 in the first stage: a rematch of the 2010 final between Spain and the Netherlands. How far each nation will go in the 2014 tournament might be decided when they meet on June 13 in Salvador.
