Holland pile up agony as Brazil's World Cup campaign ends

  • Brazil’s World Cup campaign ended on a low note as they lost 3-0 to Holland for the play-off to the third place.

    The three Dutch goals from Robin van Persie, Daley Blind and Georginio Wijnaldum meant Brazil had to face the ignominy of two consecutive defeats on home soil since 1940.

    The defeat against the Netherlands came after the humiliating 7-1 semifinal loss to Germany which prompted much soul-searching in this nation of football-lovers.
