Brazil booed as Netherlands claim third
Brazil's miserable World Cup campaign ended in a chorus of boos yesterday as the hosts slumped to a 3-0 defeat against the Netherlands in the third place playoff match.
A penalty from Robin van Persie and a Daley Blind strike saw the Dutch take a 2-0 lead after only 17 minutes as Brazil endured more woe after their humiliating 7-1 semi-final rout by Germany.
Once again Brazil's defence was hopelessly exposed, with the first Dutch goal coming when van Persie sent Arjen Robben racing in behind them.
