Brazil v Netherlands (3rd/4th Place Play-off) Saturday 12th July 2014

    This is the BIG ONE that everyone is looking forward to, especially the two teams playing :D

    I doubt many of the players want to play in this with the domestic seasons just around the corner. Certainly Louis van Gaal does not want to play it. It should be a proud moment to play for your country but risking injury just to hopefully 'win third' after a month of tough games can't be fun.

    Predictions?

    Whose the lad they brought on for De Jong in the semi who could tackle but also pass forward?
    The commentator made it sound like Classy.

    And anyone else van Gaal might've sounded out about spending their winters in Lancashire. Looking at what they need, de Vrij, Blind and Wijnaldum would all seem possibilities.

    Pointless, stupid idea for a game.

    Hopefully FIFA will end this. I fear not though as it is one more (pointless) opportunity for television, sponsorship and advertising?

    I don't think either team wants to play this game.

    Nope. Brazil will fill the stadium though.

    Competition to be third or fourth team in the world is a big thing.

    I'm sure Brazil are embarrassed about being there but they may play like a team with something to prove. I'm looking forward to it.

    It also decides who gets third prize and their money back in our office sweepstake, and so it's vital.

    What a limp sweepstake :facepalm: we have £50 for the winner, £14 for runner up, third place makes tea for a month and fourth gets fired.

    Really hard to call this one IMO. Holland the better team, but Brazil with wounded, wounded, wounded pride.

    Favelado Half to the Tower, please.

    Singing of Brazilian national anthem might be a bit quieter this time. Or maybe they'll be defiant. Can't even predict that.

    Brazil to lose on penalties.

    The Germany-Uruguay play off four years ago was a great match, one of the tournaments best.

    Brazil should make an effort in this one even if holland don't. 3-1 to them.

    Third place gets their money back, runner up gets a fiver, and the winner £40.

    Am curious to see how the crowd reacts to the team coming on the pitch, and if Brazil score will they celebrate? Very odd scenario all round.

    OMG Jô is playing. If you think Fred was bad, just remember that Jô is his reserve.
    If they get panned again I'm staying home for a week.

    I appreciate he's not Pele, Vava, Romario or Ronaldo, but is Fred that bad? He's hardly been given great service, and the original team was centred around Neymar and him scoring.

    We have top three places with a fourth prize of two quid for the team conceding most goals. Whoever's got Brazil could be on for £7 if they win tonight :cool:

    I don't care, I have Argentina :D

    Anyway, this one's always a good game :)
