That's everything from me tonight. More Brazil misery, but Dutch delight for Manchester United-bound manager Louis van Gaal. And that my friends was tonight in a nutshell.

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.

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.

"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.

"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."
