David Villa and Andres Iniesta each scored as Spain beat Chile 2-1 on Friday at the World Cup, a result that sends both teams on to the round of 16.
Villa got his goal on a shot from 45 yards out in the 24th minute, when goalkeeper Claudio Bravo came out of his area and cleared a ball straight to the Spain striker.
Iniesta doubled the advantage by beating Bravo with a right-footed shot from the edge of the area in the 37th, with Marco Estrada ejected after collecting his second yellow card on the play.
Chile didn't back down, pressing and scoring on substitute Rodrigo Millar's deflected shot in the 47th.
