The 5 - 1 defeat to Holland was the first time Spain had lost after scoring first since a humiliating 3 - 2 loss against Northern Ireland in 2006.

But as La Roja try to pick up the pieces what is the mood like and what changes could Del Bosque make?

ESPN and Examiner football writer Miguel Delaney was at their press conference ahead of tomorrow's vital clash with Chile and he suggested that some changes are likely.

Gerard Pique is likely to be dropped with Bayern Munich's versatile player Javi Martinez set to replace him, while Koke could replace Xavi. 

Miguel also discussed why David Silva feels less comfortable for Spain in comparison to Man City and why he could end up being dropped from the starting XI as well, with Pedro the potential beneficiary.

Miguel also noted a strange note of optimism from Del Bosque but warned that Spain will need to find a way of stopping Alexis Sanchez who has similar pace to Arjen Robben.
