Good fortune has benefited Spain four times so far in the World Cup and it remains to be seen whether lady luck will smile on the European champions on a fifth occasion.
In the match against Honduras (2-0), Spain had the advantage of an own goal by their opponents.
In the Chile game (2-1), David Villa scored thanks to the Chilean keeper being way off his station.
In the Portugal match (1-0), some observers considered Villa’s goal to be offside.
And Paraguay had a goal disallowed in their match against the Spanish ((1-0) on grounds which observers thought were dubious.
