Rajoy, abdicating King Juan Carlos 'joke' about 'fixed' WC match

Spain’s 5-1 stunning defeat in its World Cup opener against the Netherlands last week that could mean the exit of the defending champions from the international tournament if it does not make it against Chile today, seems to be worrying Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and abdicating King Juan Carlos.

During a lunch at the Zarzuela Palace held at the Zarzuela Palace yesterday, PM Rajoy and the monarch were caught by microphones as they “joked” about the Spain-Chile clash.

“We already have tomorrow’s match fixed,” Mariano Rajoy tells the retiring King who asks him back “how much” has the "fixing" cost. According to Rajoy, it has been for “free.”

Last week, the 2010 World Cup winners fell to the Netherlands in a 5-1 defeat that has led the team of Coach Vicente del Bosque to risk its continuation in today’s match against the Chileans.
