Brazil vs. Netherlands match up for the World Cup third place match at 9pm UK time.
World Cup play-off games for third place are criminally underrated. Both teams play with less pressure, what works to create a sportive, fun and creative display of football. This is exactly what spectators expect from today's game for the World Cup 2014 third place between Brazil and Netherlands, starting at 9pm UK time.
Will Brazil Restore its Pride?
Both teams are going to want to go all the way here, but Brazil is definitely the one which has more to prove. The disastrous 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany on Tuesday hasn't been digested by the hosting nation of the World Cup to this moment, but perhaps in their last chance to play football in the tournament they will show some of that old samba magic. Criticized coach Felipe Scolari said that the only thing the team is focusing on now is to win the match for the third place in Brasilia.
It won't be easy for the Brazilians as they face a fierce Dutch resistance. The Oranje displayed an efficient performance all throughout the tournament under the guidance of Louis van Gaal, but unfortunately for them and for total football – they were brutally eliminated by Argentina in the semi-final penalty shootout.
The match for the third place is also an excellent opportunity for fun and profitable sports betting.
