Goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz secured the victory for Chile and Jorge Sampaoli's men are now assured of a place in the last 16 ahead of their final Group B game against Holland on Monday at 1700 BST.

A clash with hosts Brazil looks set to be the prize for one of Chile or Holland in the knockout stages and that would be a real blockbuster clash.

The Dutch survived a scare to send Australia to World Cup elimination with a 3-2 victory.

Holland have joined Chile in being cut by Sky Bet in the firm's outright market.

Louis van Gaal's side have been nudged to 10/1 to claim the trophy.

Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie were both goalscorers in the win against the Socceroos.

Both players have now notched three goals in the World Cup and are movers again in Sky Bet's top goalscorer betting.

Germany's hat-trick hero Thomas Muller is the 3/1 favourite but Robben and van Persie follow next at 5/1 alongside Argentina star Lionel Messi.

Brazil forward Neymar can be backed at 7/1 and France striker Karim Benzema is available at 8/1.

There were a couple of goals for Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic in the day's final World Cup contest.

Croatia beat 10-man Cameroon 4-0 to keep alive their hopes of progressing from Group A.

Mandzukic has been cut from 66/1 to 25/1 to finish as the tournament's top scorer but his side still have work to do in order to progress to the knockout stages.

Croatia need victory in their final Group A game against Mexico to move through. They can be backed at 5/4 to reach the last 16, Mexico are 4/7 and Brazil are pretty well set at 1/200.

Meanwhile, Spain's attention turns to qualification for Euro 2016 and they are 7/2 to retain their crown.
