Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched match…

During much of the Spain v Chile World Cup match last night, you could just about hear a pin drop here in Barcelona while Spaniards held their breath and hoped this was going to go another way. In all, an average 13.229M viewers watched La Roja lose to Chile on Telecinco starting at 9 PM for a 67.6% audience share. That makes it the most watched in Spain of all the matches thus far. It’s also the second most watched game with no overtime or shootout in the tournament’s history, according to local reports. Played at Rio’s MaracanĂ£ stadium, it was seen on Telecinco by a peak of 15.2M. In Chile, both Canal 13 and TVN aired the game with respective average shares of 32.6 and 21.6, according to preliminary figures. In the UK, the biggest audience of the day went to BBC One with the match averaging 8.02M and a 38.7 share. On social media, the Spain-Chile match generated 8.2M tweets from one hour before, to 30 minutes after play. La Roja‘s 0-2 loss and exit from the tournament are a sad denouement for a team that has had an historic run. It’s also more fodder for those who believe some of the strongest World Cup champs are cursed. Spain is now the 5th world champion team to drop out of the Cup in a subsequent first stage. Today, Colombia plays Ivory Coast, Uruguay plays England, and Japan faces off with Greece.
