Australia are on their way home from their fourth World Cup after losing to Chile (1-3) and the Netherlands (2-3) in their previous two games. Leading scorer Tim Cahill, who has five of 11 Australian goals at World Cups, is missing through suspension.
Defending champions Spain have also been eliminated after losing their first two matches to the Netherlands (1-5) and Chile (0-2). It is the first time since 1998 they have failed to make it out of the group.
In 19 matches on the way to winning Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 Spain conceded only six goals, one fewer than they have in Brazil in two games.
