We have the play-off coming up with Brazil taking on the Dutch who lost
to Argentina. This will not be the finish. Not the one that Brazil
wanted after that humiliation by Germany in the semifinal but the
game comes from Brasilia and the commentator is Steve Wilson.
Brazil beginning that long healing process after that drama of the
semifinal and the Dutch hoping to become the first Netherland 's team
ever to leave a World Cup final unbeaten.
become the first Netherland 's team ever to leave a World This could be
the last game in charge for Luiz Felipe Scolari, his CV defeated by
that defeat to Germany and it is probably the end of the road for
some of his squad. Fred has been dropped. Hulk left out. Thiago Silva
is back. Louis van Gaal leaves his post after this game. He lost Wesley
Schneider in the warm up so there are two different changes to the
line-up but were beaten by Argentina. De Guzman comes in. And
Clasie coming in for the injured Nigel De Jong. Some spiky words
between the coaches. But smiles and embraces between Luiz Felipe Scolari
and Louis van Gaal. And away we go. For the bronze medals, which will be
awarded after this game. The Netherlands or blue, going from to
left. -- are in. Kuyt will take this. Wijnaldum. Like
it is Vlaar. De Guzman being hunted down by Willian. That was calmly
done, Cillessen. An early touch from Clasie. There was a very big cheer
for Jo whenever his name came up onto the scoreboard. Penalty kick!
It had to be! The referee has decided that was inside the penalty
area and after 90 seconds, the Dutch have been awarded the spot kick.
Robben was flying away. Thiago Silva getting this -- getting the yellow
card. That contact was right on the edge of the penalty area. The
initial contact was outside. The referee from Julia has awarded a
penalty. After 90 seconds. Thiago Silva only got a yellow card. And
van Persie, who scored his against Costa Rica, can put the Netherlands
in front. 1-0. Supercool penalty kick from van
Persie. 1-0. Behind again. You could almost make a case that
perhaps a free kick on the edge of the penalty area and a red card
might be the right decision. The referee gave a penalty
and a yellow card. Oscar got his head onto that.
Clasie. Jo was inside the penalty area. Ramires very nearly got the
touch. He was not far away. The goalkeeper was not sure whether to,
or not. It was that kind of all in from Oscar. Neymar has been cast in
the rule of cheerleader. Van Persie arriving in the middle. Blind. 2-0.
Terrible defending from Brazil. Blind puts it into the back of the
Brazilian net. And the home fans have been silenced. I am afraid it
is another defensive horror show from Brazil. That was onside. Blind
finds the roof of the net. There was no awareness of what was going on
from David Luiz. Smack into the roof of the net. 2-0. Blind with his
first ever international goal. Wesley Schneider looks very
disappointed not to be involved. He is 30 years old. It might be that he
doesn't have any World Cup in him and this would have been his
swansong. Oscar! Very good run. Cillessen was behind. He worked for
the space very well. But the shot in the end was disappointing. It was on
target, but not much more than that. He has not scored in either the
quarterfinal or the semifinal. Kuyt with the header. There was a foul on
Robben. Seven yellow shirts, only five blue. Here is Clasie, nicely
worked. Van Persie. He was teasing. No one attacking the near post for
the Dutch. Smashed downfield. Willian has controlled it. This is
better. Falling over the kick -- the food of Wijnaldum. Another Brazilian
free kick. He was quite happy to take that. Oscar. Free kick. If
there was any touch, it was much. I think Wijnaldum got it. It came off
his shoulder blades. The first corner of the game is Brazilian.
Willian. That was too long. Robben is there. Five against three, the
Dutch. He has to pick the right touch. Could not quite do it. That
was headed carefully away by Maxwell. That was a much better
pass. And the Dutch are run for three. -- are in. Jo. Away from
Blind. Looking for Maicon. Jo. Well, they are committing yellow
shirts forward, as many and as often as they can. But they could be
caught on the break, so easily. 2-0. His last game in charge of the
Orange men of the Netherlands. The flag is down. Free kick. The
assistant gave them three times before the referee agreed. Oscar
will take it. He only needed that touch. And two of them almost
provided it. But not quite. Paulinho within a whisker. They have been
seeded 13 goals in just under 6.5 games in this World Cup, Brazil. --
they have conceded. David Luiz has given it away. Robben. Maxwell with
the clearance. Van Persie, they want to be careful. Bouncing onto his
left foot, the alarm bells are ringing. Willian caught by Blind.
Here is Martins Indi. Half-time. And that is a reaction from the fans
inside the stadium. Brazil booed for the second time running. The second
half under way, no change for the Dutch. The Dutch knocked Brazil out
of the last World Cup. In the quarterfinals. Throw from Maxwell.
That was good from Ramires. He has just overrun. The deflection in the
direction of Jo. Here's hoping this is a corner. The referee is
checking, and yes, it is. Great turn from Ramires. That was played short
to Maxwell. Oscar. Willian. Into the danger area. Here is Robben. Ramires
covering, and filing. Free kick to the Netherlands. And Robben is
breaking away. And the deflection, the back post. He could not quite
get that in. Almost catching that the Brazilian defence, Robben. The
pass by Thiago Silva was decent. Those boos are for him, and he knows
it. That was a good turn. Ramires away. And the wrong side of the
post. That was not far from the mark. That was a lovely turn. 30
minutes to go. In this play-off in Brazil. 2-0. Both goals inside the
first 20 minutes. Van Persie penalty and Blind with the second one.
Maicon. Willian. Maicon. Taking Blind but not getting through the
second challenge of Kuyt. The free kick has been given. Kuyt smiling.
Pretty sure he did win that cleanly. Maybe it was for that? Well, this
free kick... David Luiz. Against Colombia, it went into the roof of
the net. This one might be slightly closer. He goes for that again and
the goalkeeper simply stands. Oscar. Fernandinho. Oscar! The Dutch hand
24 hours less recovery time after their semifinal. Here is Maxwell.
Good touch from Jo. Maicon will have to chase. Appeal from the crowd for
handball. Maicon is protesting that Martins Indi -- Vlaar at this. --
hit this. Oscar. Is that a foul? They were screaming at the referee
but I think Oscar is going to get the card for diving. Oscar has been
booked. It might just have made contact with the top of the right
boot of Oscar. Brazil are feeling hard done by. He looks in a bad way.
Oscar. Jo. Hulk. That was an ambitious drive from a very
promising angle with Vlaar standing in front of him. Predictable result.
Almost seven complete matches, the Netherlands, only conceding four
goals in this World Cup. Robben. Bundled over from behind. The
referee would struggle to get out of here if you gave the Dutch another
penalty. Given away to Thiago Silva. Robben. Van Persie. That looked
suspiciously offside but it was not given. Maicon. Corner kick.
Robben's corner. That was not far away. Moving into five added
minutes. They are looking very tired. Here is Robben. Van Persie
already forward. 3-0. There was always a suspicion that Brazil would
be undone on the break. Wijnaldum making it 3-0. And Brazil have
worked hard in the second half to give their fans some sort of cheer.
Great overlapping run from Janmaat. And that very tidy finish from
Wijnaldum. Brazil have conceded -- have conceded ten goals in their
last two home games. They have gone 39 years without losing any home
competitive match prior to that. This will mean that for the first
time since World Cup squads were composed of 23 players, one
selection, the Dutch, will have used all of them. That has never happened
before. They all have had a taste of Brazil 2014. Well, the World Cup for
Brazil is over. It is very hard to envisage that Luiz Felipe Scolari
can apprehend what has happened. What has happened in that semifinal
has been made worse by what has happened here today against the
Dutch. They will get the bronze medal, finishing third in the 2014
World Cup. And deservedly so, they have played Shelley, Argentina and
Brazil and have only lost one penalty shoot out. Brazil, the
wheels have fallen off. In a big way. It was not great. 3-0. So that
is a play-off. What about the big one? The World Cup final 2014.
Germany against Argentina. An amazing five weeks and Brazil. Here
is our take on the high points and the low points. Questions,
questions. Could the five-time winners give us a World Cup to
remember? The sceptics said no, Brazil said yes. This was different,
the old Kings quickly lost their crime. Spain are out! And what of
England? Youthful vigour but home long before bedtime. In the mighty
jungle, the Lions fell asleep. The nightmare never stop. Luis Suarez!
Why they lacked bite, others did not. He can dribble and Neville.
This party is not all you can eat. We sell the two sides of another
star. Robben, ruthless and reliant. Wonderful number ones. Keepers and
sweepers. None of them shall pass. Football was frantic. Goal after
endless goal. The all-time World Cup record goal-scorer! The world 's
most powerful nation fell in love with the worlds was powerful game.
But the first time, two different African sides went into the last 16.
Their light was soon extinguished. We saw the very best from the very
best. And he scores! Messi, is was not the only left-sided one. He was
even loved by the locusts. His team have class and style, perfect
rhythm, while others were dancing alone, he left the stage without any
encore. Woodwork, hard work and margins. Neymar brokers back but
Brazilian Hearts will take longer to heal. Humiliated! And taken apart.
Germany will always remember but Brazil will try hard to forget. We
wept and we roared and reselling. They sprayed and played. We watched,
he watched. Millions of viewers and fans. 32 nations down to just two of
them. The best team against the best player. Only one can go home happy.
Did you know that two of the five World Cup Finals have been decided
from the penalty spot so how can you make sure you get it right when it
matters? Pay attention, Argentina and Germany. He is a masterclass
from Alan Shearer. You represent your country and the nation is
watching. And the pressure is huge. 50,000 people around you. Walking
from the halfway line to the penalty spot. What is in your mind? Your
mind starts to play tricks. What should I do? That is a very long
walk. And there are 1 million things going through your mind. Stay calm.
You can feed your heart beating faster. You must believe in what you
have trained to do. Never in doubt! You have to stay in control of the
situation. I am not looking at the goalkeeper. He will try to play mind
games. He did not know where he was going to put it, he was trying to
get into his head. I would have standard outside the box and waited
for Tim to return. Stay in control. Look exactly at the opposite area to
where I was going to hit it. I would always look to the left, knowing I
was going to the right-hand side. Do you put it down in a special way? I
have to put the valve at the top. You already know where you are going
to put it. And you should never, ever change your mind. The Germans
have a word for the process. It means strength of nerves, nerves of
steel. And they are not bad at it. To make sure you score, would you
let you wear the shirt for Germany? I would rather where Sunderland.
What is the last thing going through your mind? Don't miss! -- wear the
shirt for Sunderland. There you have it, all set up for the fitting
finale. The World Cup final, Germany against Argentina. The build-up
starts from 7pm on BBC One, Gary Lineker joined by Rio Ferdinand and
Alan Hansen, his last ever appearance as a BBC pundit. Kick off
at 8pm. Make sure it's the BBC for your coverage.
