The big Olympic upset of the day saw Spain knocked out of the group stages of Olympic football competition after losing 1-0 to Honduras tonight.
The two losses suffered by 'la rojita' at the hands of Japan and Honduras this weekend have handed Spanish football one of the biggest disappointments of the last few decades and the country's first major failure after four years of almost unrivalled success.
Luis Milla's squad performed considerably better against Honduras than in their debut against Japan on Saturday, with the superb performance of Honduran goalie José Mendoza having a major hand in denying a persistent Spain team on the night.
The Spanish side paid dearly for allowing Jerry Bengtson to squeeze in an early goal and were cruelly denied at least one clear penalty decision, but their inability to put any of their numerous chances on goal past Mendoza ultimately sealed their fate.
The match ended on a sour note with indignant Spanish players jostling the referee after the final whistle had gone.
