Stat attack

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Brazil have failed to score in two games in a World Cup tournament for the first time since 1978, when they also failed to find the net in two games.

Gary Lineker

MOTD presenter

Brazil play like an amateur outfit, and I'm sorry PSG but David Luiz is not a defender and never will be.

Bit of class from Netherlands skipper Robin van Persie, who spots one of his team's most recognisable fans in the stands. Wearing a military hat and clad from head to toe in orange, this lucky gentleman has been picked out by the cameramen at every World Cup game. Now he is picked out by Van Persie, who clambers over the advertisement hoardings and hands over his captain's armband. The player gets a sloppy kiss on his hand as a thank you. Wonderful moment.

Ruairi Dorrity: If Oscar hadn't scored against Germany, Brazil would have conceded 11 goals without scoring. Instead, it's only eight.

Daniel Philpott: Brazil didn't get out of first gear at all today, played like they expected to lose. Netherlands finished it at the start.

Chris Gilbert: Brazil need to just rebuild their team. They're like England, lacking world class players (apart from Neymar).

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Great scenes inside the Estadio Nacional as the Dutch milk the applause of those fans still inside. And there is a healthy number of supporters - Brazilian and Dutch - who heartily clap the players on their lap of honour.

Deservedly so. Not many people would have had these lot down as potential semi-finalists...

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Plenty of pearly whites on show as the smiling Dutch players collect their bronze medals after a handshake with Sepp Blatter. The Fifa president has a quiet word in the ear of Louis van Gaal, who then photobombs his squad. The Dutch coach gives a 'big thumbs ups' from the background as they pose for the obligatory team photograph.

MJC1973: Well the Dutch lay waste to the hosts without really having to push themselves. Brazil have as many issues to resolve as England.

Kevin, Hornchurch: Woeful: Brazil, England, Spain. Wonderful: Mexico, Chile, Colombia. It's a funny old game.

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Admittedly, like Brazil, not many of us would want to stick around on the pitch if we had been thumped in front of our own fans. For the second successive game.

The Dutch players are still there, waiting patiently for the 'presentation party'. Fifa president Sepp Blatter arrives - to the sound of more boos. It sounds as though he is about as popular as Luiz Felipe Scolari in the eyes of the Brazil fans.

Steve Wilson

BBC Match of the Day commentator

"The boos rain down on Brazil and their manager Luiz Felipe Scolari. It is very hard to envisage him surviving in the job.

"If reaching the semi-final was the minimum requirement they have achieved that, but what happened in that semi-final has been made worse, if that was possible, by the result tonight.

"The wheels have fallen off Brazil's competition in a big way. Netherlands get third and deservedly so."

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Dutch boss Van Gaal and his skipper Robin van Persie are in deep discussion on the touchline. Perhaps RVP is giving his new Manchester United boss a few tips on the finest eateries in the north-west of England.

Meanwhile, Brazil's players have long disappeared down the tunnel. Are they not waiting for the Dutch players to be handed their bronze medals? How rude.

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

While the Brazil players hang around the pitch looking unsure what to do, there are plenty of high-fives and hugs among their Dutch counterparts. A big smile is etched across the face of Louis van Gaal. His tenure as the Netherlands coach finishes with a win. Next stop - Old Trafford.

FULL-TIME

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

All over in the Estadio Nacional - and the Brazil players are glad for it. Another embarrassment for the home side, and particularly their coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, as the final whistle is greeted with more boos and whistles.

AFP

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Steve Wilson

BBC Match of the Day commentator

"Georginio Wijnaldum the substitute still had some running in his legs and he makes it three with a tidy finish. Brazil have worked hard in this second half to try and give their fans something to cheer, but are now three down.

"They have conceded 10 goals in their last two games, after having gone 39 years without losing on home soil."

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands

Another substitution for the Netherlands as goalkeeper Michel Vorm is given a taste of the action for the first time in this World Cup. That's the first time a nation has used all 23 players in a tournament. And, while we're talking about firsts, it must be the first time a goalkeeper has been hooked twice in the same tournament?

GOAL

Brazil 0-3 Netherlands - Georginio Wijnaldum

Game, set and match. Brazil's misery is complete as Georginio Wijnaldum spanks in a half volley at the near post for the Dutch third. Superb energy from substitute Daryl Janmaat to race down the right flank and provide the inch-perfect cross.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Brazil substitute Hulk gets a bit tetchy as he clashes with Dutch defender Ron Vlaar. That would be a royal rumble worth watching. Another injury for the Netherlands as Jordy Clasie is carried off by the medical staff, Joel Veltman given a slice of the action.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Remarkably, the Dutch win their first corner of the match. And it almost provides a third goal. Dirk Kuyt climbs above the Brazil defence to meet Robin van Persie's set-piece, but cannot steer it into the far corner.

Steve Huish, Surbiton: Congratulations to Arjen Robben - Best Actor 2014. Well done.

Jason: Feel for Oscar. He is trying to get something moving for Brazil but the other players are just failing him.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Here's an opportunity for Brazil. Hulk stands over a free-kick close to the left touchline as David Luiz and Thiago Silva trot forward. But his set-piece fails to beat the first man and the Dutch clear. Very disappointing.

Social media comments from around the world are being translated and curated by the BBC's multilingual World Cup Twitter conversation, @viabbc.

Mauricio Sotrate (Brazil): So sad to see our Selecao like this. Lost, players hitting their opponents and no real football...

PENALTY APPEAL

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Arjen Robben spends more time on the floor than a baby who has just learned to crawl. The Dutchman tumbles again as he competes for a high ball pumped into the Brazil box with Fernandinho. Referee Djamel Haimoudi is not interested.

Dutch boss Louis van Gaal is furious on the touchline.

AFP

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Ron Vlaar is everywhere! Oscar finds space down the left, getting to the byeline, only to see Vlaar's chiselled face staring at him from close proximity. Another strong block from the Dutch defender. Moments later, Oscar blazes one high over the Dutch crossbar. Just over 10 minutes for Brazil to give their suffering supporters something to cheer.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Hulk wants a piece of this action. The portly Zenit forward leads a Brazil counter attack and sees Ron Vlaar standing between him and the goal. He tries to ease past the Aston Villa defender with a silky skill, but there's no fooling the Dutchman. Great challenge. Great World Cup for the big man.

D-Mac: Thought the referee got it right. Oscar started to dive before the contact. If he had carried on normally it would have been a pen.

Ben Dunbar: Looked to me like Oscar was going down before the contact for that one. Wish referees could book for simulation and give the penalty.

Daniel Woodley: That was a blatant penalty! The boy who cried wolf springs to mind. How many times have they dived in the World Cup?

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Arjen Robben is like the talented kid at school who you could never get the ball off. The Dutch speedster sets off again, slaloming his way into the Brazil box, before Fernandinho superbly gets a superb challenge in.

Back up the other end, Hulk lets fly from a tight angle. The less said about that effort the better.....

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Last throw of the tactical dice for Luiz Felipe Scolari. Unfortunately, his isn't able to call on Neymar - so here's Hulk instead. He needs to do something incredible. Boom-tsh.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Steve Wilson

BBC Match of the Day commentator

"Oscar booked for diving, Daley Blind stretched out his left foot, he didn't make any contact with the ball but the referee was adamant contact with the player was initiated by Oscar.

"Having seen the incident a few times now, Blind might just have made contact with the top of Oscar's right boot. Brazil feeling hard done by."

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

A bitter-sweet day's work for Dutch goalscorer Daley Blind, who has done himself some damage in that tangle. It all looked pretty innocuous, but the Ajax defender looks in serious pain. He is taken off on a stretcher and is replaced by Daryl Janmaat.

AFP

YELLOW CARD

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Brazil are baying for a penalty as Oscar goes tumbling in the Dutch area. He looks inquisitively to the referee, Dutch tackler Daley Blind looks sheepish. But the referee is not having any of it - and books Oscar for diving. The Chelsea man cannot believe it. Very harsh.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Big Phil Scolari is po-faced on the touchline. He looks like he is a broken man. Is this the final 25 minutes of his tenure?

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Good spell for Brazil is this. Maicon is adamant that he deserves a penalty after Ron Vlaar moves his arm towards his cross from the right touchline. Not a chance, says Algerian referee Djamel Haimoudi (or words to that effect).

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Here's a rare sight - Maicon bursting forward through the middle of an opposition defence. The ageing right-back is scythed down by Dirk Kuyt about 30 yards out to win a free-kick. David Luiz is licking his lips in anticipation, but sees his dipping effort fly straight into the gloves of Jasper Cillessen. At least Cillessen has got some mud on them...

Duncan, Isleworth: As entertaining as this World Cup has been, it tells you something about the poor quality of football displayed when this Brazil team can be placed fourth.

Tommy: People can slate Brazil but the fact is they beat Chile and Colombia - both so-called dark horses! I for one would have been delighted to see England get this far.

AFP

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Much better from Brazil. Ramires turns neatly about 30 yards out, leaving Ron Vlaar for dead, and finds some space to shoot. But the Chelsea man drags his low shot across the face of the Dutch goal. Better signs for the home nation though.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

And Hernanes' first contribution to dive in, studs first, on Arjen Robben's left ankle. Pure filth.

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Another Brazil substitute as coach Luiz Felipe Scolari looks to salvage something from this game. Inter Milan midfielder Hernanes takes the place of Tottenham's Paulinho.

Matthew Bennett: If you think about this Brazil team, they were the boot cleaners of Ronaldo and Rivaldo. Maybe they should still be.

Steven McNamara: Brazil leaving out Phillipe Coutinho was a huge mistake, surely they have better strikers than the shocking Jo and Fred too?

Stepan Benyovszky: Arjen Robben has been absolutely incredible. Not just the skill, but the work rate. Standout player of the whole World Cup.

YELLOW CARD

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Jinxed him. After just praising Fernandinho for a promising start, he gets it all wrong by nobbling cross-Manchester rival Robin van Persie just inside the Brazil half. That lands him in deep bother with the referee, who plucks out the yellow card.

AFP

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Half-time substitute Fernandinho has added a flicker of energy to the Brazil side. He lofts a hopeful punt towards Oscar, who cannot take down the ball just outside the Dutch box.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

A few screams of hope as Brazil press forward. The Selecao win a corner, before Willian drills in a low cross from the left which is hacked to safety.

Then, there are a few screams of anguish from the home fans as the Dutch break. A quick free-kick almost catches the Brazilians out, Arjen Robben and Daley Blind playing a quick one-two, before the former's deflected shot loops over the far post.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Nifty footwork from Julio Cesar in the Brazil goalmouth draws a big cheer from the home fans. He keeps his nerve to dance around an onrushing Robin van Persie before picking out David Luiz. The camera pans to Big Phil Scolari - cue boos from the stands.

KICK-OFF

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Game on. Brazil enjoy some early possession, with Fernandinho already in the thick of things. Maxwell swings in a left-wing cross towards Paulinho, but the linesman has his flag wafting in the Brasilia air. Offside.

SUBSTITUTION

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Yes. Yes he is. Fernandinho runs on to the pitch with the electronic scoreboard bearing the number of Luiz Gustavo. Straight swap in the middle of the Brazil midfield.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is stripped and going through some shuttle runs in the Estadio Nacional tunnel. And that must mean he's coming on.

Vote result - Should Thiago have seen red?

Earlier we asked you whether Brazil captain Thiago Silva should have been sent off for the challenge on Arjen Robben that gave away a penalty and Robin van Persie's opener from the spot.

He's very lucky to be on the pitch, according to the overwhelming majority of you. Thousands voted and 83.7% said he should have been shown a red card.

Martin Horne: Hilarious. David Luiz is just like my three-year-old. Gets angry when all collapses around him, but those watching knows he caused it!

Andrew: David Luiz is having yet another shocker, someone please teach him to defend properly!

Omar El-Sharawy: Fred to come on and score a hat-trick and clinch Brazil the win. You heard it here first.

Steve Wilson

BBC Match of the Day commentator

"Brazil are booed off at half-time for the second game running. But it's not 5-0. It's a step in the right direction but only a tiny one."

HALF-TIME

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

But the Netherlands look more likely to score again. They break down the left, before the home side scramble clear. Brazil need the half-time whistle quickly - and here it is as referee Djamel Haimoudi blows up for the break. And it is greeted by plenty of boos and whistles from the fed-up home supporters.

BBC

INJURY TIME

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Two minutes of stoppage time for Brazil to grab themselves a lifeline.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Another Dutch name is surely going to be taken by referee Djamel Haimoudi. Ron Vlaar clatters into Ramires both late and above the foot. But no - Vlaar somehow escapes. As do his team as Oscar boots the free-kick into the wall and then Maxwell follows up by ballooning the rebound over the crossbar.

Brazil 0-2 Netherlands

Netherlands captain Robin van Persie shaping up to shoot with that lethal left foot is a sight feared by every defence in the world. Luckily for this fragile Brazil backline, he does not connect as sweetly as we know he can from inside the area. Brazil keeper Julio Cesar gratefully clutches the ball to his barrel chest.
