World Cup 2014: The Netherlands Handle Brazil With Ease to Win Third Place

World Cup 2014: With the fortune that Brazil had spent on hosting the World Cup the fans were not just hoping to win the World Cup. They were expecting it.



Why? Doing so would take the sting out of spending billions of dollars that were needed elsewhere. Up until the team lost Neymar to a back injury it appeared as if they could, but instead the team experienced a breakdown of epic proportions in the semi-final game against Germany.

Sure enough that breakdown continued Saturday against the Netherlands.

After missing the game against Germany due to a pair of yellow cards in the previous game Thiago Silva had a chance to redeem himself in the third place game. He did not. Three minutes in he takes down Arjen Robben in a fashion that earns him another yellow card. The ensuing penalty kick by Robin van Persie found the back of the net putting the Netherlands up 1-0.

That would end up being enough for the Dutch to win, but got two more goals (one from Daley Blind in the 17th minute and another from Georginio Wijnaldum in injury time.

It was a dubious ending for the host team. With three goals allowed Saturday Brazil’s World Cup total is 14–the most given up by any team. The game also marked the first time in over 70 years that Brazil lost back to back home matches.

The Dutch set a couple of marks in the win. When Michael Vorm was subbed in to the game the Netherlands became the first team to give all 23 players on the roster playing time. With a record of 5-2-0 they finished regular play with an unbeaten record for the first time.
