3rd Place Match : Brazil v Netherlands : Estádio Nacional de Brasilia, Brasília : Sun 13th Jul : 1.30 AM IST

Recommended Posts

A match that no team wants to play.

Pointless match. I hope FIFA abandons this farce from the next WC.
Seriously.. it is farce. Must be stopped. Netherlands openly said that they dont want to play this match and well Brazil is not in a position to make a statement. After 1-7, anything otherthn position no. 32 would be like getting free credit.

Copied from elsewhere. ------------- From Lahm's account:

The Germans had to go to Stuttgart for a match none of them wanted to play, the third-place playoff against Portugal. When they landed at the airport it was pouring rain. The bus that picked them up got stuck in a traffic jam. The players were irritated. What’s the holdup? The main train station is closed, the bus driver said. “For ****’s sake,” the players grumbled. “What’s going on?” Lahm writes: “There are 10,000 people at the train station. They’re waiting for you.”
------------ Usually 3rd place match is relatively more entertaining, with nothing to lose/gain, teams play more freely. Also, it is a truer test of your passion for the game. When you are down and out, nothing to play for, can you still give you the best and enjoy the game. Especially for the love of your fans.

They should have played more competitive games. This is the disadvantage of being a host. Automatic qualification means no real preparation.
But all the host nations tend to do well in the wc,semifinals was more than a good achievement for this brazilian team and mind u they.haven't reached the semis in the last 2 wc

0-2 may be the best result Brazil can hope for. David Luiz seems to be playing absolute BS football. Ball is flying all over and that header back in front of the goal, WTF was that?
