CURITIBA, Brazil (AP) -- Spain's players dismissed notions that its 5-1 loss to the Netherlands spelled the end of an era for the world champions, although coach Vicente del Bosque acknowledged it might be time to shake up the team's line-up for the crucial group match against Chile.

Defender Sergio Ramos says "it's crazy to talk about the end of an era" after Spain endured its worst competitive defeat in 64 years in Salvador on Friday.

Spain's bid to repeat as world champion could end if it loses Wednesday's match against the South Americans at the Maracana.

Del Bosque defended his decision to stick with some of the squad's older players, although said "there could be changes, but now is not the moment to talk about it. I don't want to rush things and make a wrong decision."
