Santi Cazorla completed 67 minutes of action as Spain bowed out of the World Cup with a 3-0 win against Australia in Curitiba.

Despite a bright start from Australia, Spain never looked in danger of a third defeat in a row and took the lead on 36 minutes when Andres Iniesta's through ball found Juanfran and his low cross was cutely turned home by David Villa.

Cazorla was replaced by Cesc Fabregas midway through the second half and the holders doubled their lead a minute later.

It was another Iniesta pass that unlocked the Socceroos' defence, this time the Barcelona midfielder found Fernando Torres in space and the Chelsea forward kept his cool to slot past Mathew Ryan.

Substitute Juan Mata then added a third with nine minutes remaining, placing under Ryan from Fabregas' lofted pass.

The win means Spain finish their Group B campaign in third place with three points.
