Player Ratings: Spain 3-0 Chile

Spain showed again why they are ranked number one in the world with a good performance against a spirited Chile side in El Madrigal. watched the action and gave marks out of ten to each of the players.

Casillas 6 - May not have faced any clear chances, but he controlled his area well and cut out all the crosses that came his way with confidence.

Sergio Ramos 6.5 - Saw a lot of the ball going forward, but could not produce the opening that the coach would have liked and was withdrawn in the second half.

Capdevila 6
- Was able to push forward when possible, but was not as active as the two that appeared on the other flank.

Puyol 7
- An assured presence at the back who does not always receive the credit he deserves for his strength and organisation of a back four.

Albiol 7 - Another unsung player in arguably the best Spain side ever, but his partnership with the Barça star looked very good.

Fàbregas 7 - Did not see everything he tried come off, but he was also called upon to work back and help out in a crowded midfield.

Senna 6.5
- Put himself about and was lucky not to be booked. In a busy midfield, the Villarreal star broke up the Chile forward movements well.

Xabi Alonso 7.5
- Also worked very hard and kept a calm head in tight situations to break up the play and release team-mates.

Xavi 7.5 - His passes set up two of the goals and while he was evidently one of the players Chile aimed to stop, he still did his job well.

Riera 7 - Was given a chance due to his good form for Liverpool and more than did enough to earn another chance at the highest level.

Villa 7.5 - Showed a cool head from the penalty spot and made the best of playing on his own to create chances and to test the keeper.


Reina 6
- In much the same way as Casillas had little to do, the Liverpool keeper did not have the busiest night.

Marchena 7 - made a seamless change at the break and looked comfortable and controlled in the centre of a defence that did not concede.

Cazorla 7.5 - In front of his home crowd, the Villarreal midfielder also made a difference and looked very lively going forward.

Torres 8 - Completely changed the face of the game with his speed and movement and scored a superb goal to add to his tally at international level.

Arbeloa 6.5 - Did well enough going forward in place of Sergio Ramos and almost set up Cazorla for what would have been a fine effort.

Llorente 6
- The big man wanted to create an impression, but he may have to wait for his next chance because he did not test the keeper.


Bravo 6.5
- Cannot really be blamed for any of the goals and did pull off some good stops to ensure that his side only lost by three.

Fuentes 5.5 - Showed glimpses of what he is capable of, but was turned inside out by Torres for his goal.

Cristian Álvarez 5.5
- Not only did he look to keep Riera quiet down the flank, but he also found time and space to go forward and have a rare shot.

Ponce 6 - Despite the visitors conceding three, he will be aggrieved because the Chile defence did well to stop more going in and he impressed.

Tello 5 - Was unable to do much in a packed midfield in the first half and was then forced to track back and help out.

Alexis 5.5 - Pushed forward when Chile broke and was fouled on a number of occasions as he looked to open things up in midfield.

Isla 5 - Another who could not play his normal game thanks to the marking role he was required to perform.

Carmona 5.5 - Was unfortunate to see the ball spin off his foot for Cazorla to claim a goal, but made other crucial interventions.

Matías Fernández 6
- On the home ground of his club side, he could have made a real impression but instead flitted in and out of the game.

Orellana 7 - Constantly busy and worked back as well as moving forward to try and support the frontman in a good display.

Suazo 5.5 - Was kept very quiet by the Spanish defensive pairing of Puyol and Albiol and he only featured when running from midfield.
