The end of Spanish reign in world soccer!!

I watched the match between Spain and chile last night, the final score line  was a reflection of the end of Spanish reign in world soccer. Though surprises never cease to happen in World Cup tournament, this was unbelievable. I could not stop asking myself what really caused the downfall of Spain. Was it complacency, tactical indiscipline, managerial and organizational mishap or it was a mere repetition of history. Similar fate happened to the french and Italian teams, the last time they won the World Cup tournament. They could not progress from the group stage to move on in defense of their respective championships.<div>The obvious question is: what really cause reigning champions to fail in their effort to defend the trophies they won in the previous tournament? Could it be that they fail because the opponents they meet knowing their pedigrees and track records prepare so much to overpower them? This phenomenon is gradually becoming a trend in World Cup history and I think it an issue worth considering by analyst and connoisseurs of the game.  </div>
