The reign of Spain was not merely on the wane – it was over.Of red-shirted men who had been elevated to almost mythical status with two European Championships and a World Cup in the last six years.As was the case against the Dutch last week, it simply was not enough against stronger, livelier and, frankly, hungrier opponents.It was not that Spain lost, it was the manner of the defeat which rankled.The Chileans were sharper on the break.Diego Costa, the Brazilian who deserted the land of his birth to play for the Spaniards, was blunt up front. So Spain turned to Fernando Torres – himself no stranger to fading fortunes.
