Third Place World Cup Game Between Netherlands-Brazil is Completely Meaningless

EPL Talk at related • 1 view

I hate to burst the bubble of Brazil fans and South Americans looking forward to watching Saturday's Third Place Final between Netherlands and Brazil, but most of the world couldn't care about the game.

The game is a glorified friendly, and it always has been and always will.

In future years, few people will remember who finished third in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The worst Brazil ever and the great Dutch

Football Fanaticos at related • 1 view
Too many people will be saying this for years to come: this is the worst Brazil side in history. I really thought that it could not get any lower than the 1-7 loss. While they may "only" have lost 0-3, the lack of commitment, belief, ideas, not to say a complete lack of basic defensive skills, were appalling to watch.

The disappointer's final

Football Fanaticos at related • 0 views
Netherlands and Brazil will be facing none another in the unnecessary fight for third place in this year's world cup. For both sides this is a huge disappointment considering their expectations before the tournament, but they can really blame nobody else. Brazil is there after crashing wildly on the expectations and their lack of preparation and focus.
