thumbnail Hello,

The midfielder expects the Roja to be foaming at the mouth after being embarrassed by Netherlands on Friday and admitted his fitness is frustrating him

Arturo Vidal thinks that Spain will be fuming after being trounced 5-1 by Netherlands but hopes Chile can match them on Wednesday.

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 shock with a 5-1 victory.

Afterwards, Chile opened their tournament with a 3-1 win over Australia. Alexis Sanchez and Jorge Valdivia scored in the early stages of the game and, although Tim Cahill pulled a goal back for the Socceroos, Jean Beausejour capped the win with a late effort.

And the Juventus midfielder 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," he told

"Nobody could expect a defeat like that."

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

"I have gone a while without playing," he said. "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 will see them qualify for the last 16 should Australia fail to beat Netherlands.
