Less than a week into the World Cup, and we're already guaranteed new champions. Yesterday, the 2010 champs Spain fell to Chile 0-2, marking the second consecutive time a defending champion has been eliminated from group play. After a 1-5 loss to Netherlands on Friday, Spain went scoreless against Chile and suffered a shocking early end to their trophy run. For Spain, this signifies the end of an era, as their dominance on the sport looks to be fading fast. Now, Chile and Netherlands will advance, regardless of who wins their match on Monday. Speaking of Netherlands, they managed to hold off a feisty Australia team and pick up a 3-2 win yesterday, while Croatia shut out Cameroon 4-0.

Check out all the best boots on the pitch yesterday after the break, and keep it locked to Sneaker Report for continued coverage of the unpredictable 2014 FIFA World Cup.
