The world and European champions were favourites to repeat the 2010 final by beating the Dutch on Friday but doubles from Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben and a Stefan de Vrij goal saw Louis van Gaal's men spring a surprise.

And Vidal is aware that Vicente del Bosque's men will be looking to turn around their fortunes with a vengeance in the next World Cup match.

"We know that they will play with great anger, we hope to rise to the occasion," Vidal told the press.

"Nobody could expect a defeat like that."

Vidal, who recovered from surgery in May to be fit to start in Chile's opener - a 3-1 win over Australia - and then threw a water bottle when he was substituted after 60 minutes, admits that his depleted fitness after playing for the first time in a month was incredibly frustrating.

"I have gone a while without playing," he added. "You always want to get in the best shape but I have not had the right conditions.

"The important thing is that I played."

Chile know that a win over Spain in their second match of the group stage would see them qualify for the last 16 should Australia fail to beat Netherlands.
