Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque has admitted that he and a number of players may face consequences following their disappointing exit from the World Cup.

La Roja, who were humiliated 5-1 by the Netherlands in their opener, went down 2-0 to Chile last night to bow out of the tournament.

Goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz at the Maracana Stadium meant that Spain became the first defending champions to get knocked out of the World Cup after just two matches.

And Del Bosque, who guided the nation to the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship triumphs, is aware that his time as the Spanish coach may be approaching its end.

"It's true that when such things happen during a World Cup or a tournament such things have consequences," he was quoted as saying by the BBC.  


"We have time to analyse that and it is not the right time now. There will be time to think and reflect what we are going to do.

"I think this team is good but we have to take a decision about what is good for Spanish football and that applies to myself as well."

Spain, who also won the 2008 European Championship, will face Australia in their final Group B game on Monday before flying off home.
