I predict 2-1 NED, here. I also expect Brazil to win the World Cup in 2018.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
this would have been a great final
Brazil would have been the worst team ever to play in a final and it wouldn't be close.
You suck balls.... Or something like that
3-0 Nederland. Suck it, Brazil. They were terrible.
LOL at Brazil
Brazil probably have a claim that it shouldn't have been a PK. Silva should have been sent off for that though.
All things considered, they should be happy they at least have 11 men on the field.
USA>Brazil. They fucking suck.
Wow, what happened to Brazil?
Alright Dutch, time to pour it on. See if you can beat Germany here....
I thought we were past that.
On a serious note, for the first 20 minutes, it's hard to take Brazil serious. And how did Silva not pull a red with his takedown of Robben?
It's basically a friendly and Haimoudi didn't want to create a spectacle by sending off a Brazilian in the first two minutes.
It has to be that. It's not possible for an official at this level to miss that call. Did you notice he started to reach for the red, then changed his mind?
Is Brazil really this crappy minus Neymar? They've looked like the worst team in the tournament the last two games. Just pathetic
They haven't looked very impressive (at least to the standard they're expected) all tournament. Yes, Neymar did provide some offensive creativity that releaved pressure on the rest of the team, but I think they've finally just run up against real quality opposition at this point and they're showing they are not up to that level.
I, for one, am still furious Brazil somehow got through Colombia. Instead of James Rodriguez & Co against Nationalmannschaft, we got that joke of a blowout game.
Brazil is definitely not worthy of a top-4 finish.
Too many big mistakes for the WC 3 rd place game.
They were supposed to be mailed out by now?
A bunch of my friends got theirs and posted them on Facebook. Bastards.
Not yet. They were supposed to start mailing them out on Monday I think.
I haven't gotten mine yet.
Ref gives 5 minutes stoppage to get Brazil on the board, and now this!
3-0 Netherlands - it's a wrap.
Wasn't it pretty much a wrap at 1-0? Certainly by 2-0.
And the car horns are sounding in Buenos Airea.
Tomorrow's game is going to be a dogfight. I have Germany winning 1-nil.
Should of been 11-0. So disappointed in Germany for not finishing strong.
After not losing at home in a competitive game in I think almost 30 years, they lost 2 straight by the combined score of 10-1 with that one being a 90th minute gift from Germany. What a humiliating end to Brazil's run as the host team. That country will never forget this performance
This might be as embarrassing as when they hosted it in 1950. I wonder if they will ever want to host it again.
This is much worse. In 1950 they only lost 2-1, and it was in the final - a heartbreaking loss, to be sure, and a shock to an overconfident country, but really nothing to hang your head over.
Germany-Brazil was complete and utter humiliation, followed by a second embarrassment at the hands of the Dutch.
1974 was their last competitive loss at home. They lost a friendly not that long ago to Paraguay. Lots of draws but no losses.
Imagine Michigan going 39 years without losing at home (the actual number of game equivalent would be more like 60 years) and then losing 56-3 and 35-0 in back-to-back games.
Yeah, you'd be devastated.
Actually they played 62 competitive games during their unbeaten streak, so it'd be more like a decade for Michigan football. Still a long time.
Brazil this World Cup reminds me of us at the end of Carr. The two most storied programs in their respective sports kicked in the gut and told the old way and entitlement doesn't get it done any more. Brazil has a long climb ahead.
Totally disappointed I missed a contest of this magnitude- when is the 5th place game on?
