Main article: 2010 FIFA World Cup

Group H of the 2010 FIFA World Cup began on 16 June and ended on 25 June 2010. The group consisted of reigning European champions Spain, Switzerland, Honduras and Chile.

Overall

Chile and Spain were in the same group in 1950, in a group from which only the Spanish team qualified. Chile and Switzerland were also in the same group in 1962 when Chile was host and went on to finish in third place. Switzerland and Spain competed in the same group in 1966 but neither advanced to the next round. Finally, Honduras and Spain were in the same group in 1982.

The winners of this group, Spain, advanced to face Group G runners-up Portugal, while Chile, as group runners-up, faced Brazil, the winners of Group G.
