The Netherlands has won the third place at Brazil’s FIFA World Cup 2014 by thrashing the hosts 3-0 in the capital Brasilia.

Wednesday’s defeat at Estadio Nacional de Brasilia made Brazilians concede 10 goals in their last two matches as they were thrashed by Germany 7-1.

" After the 7-1 today ' s game was very difficult psychologically, " Brazilian captain Thiago Silva said, adding, “But we need to look at what we did wrong so we don ' t make the same mistakes again. Especially when we lose a goal it ' s like the world has ended and that ' s not the way it should be. Football changes every minute and you can ' t fall apart when you lose goals. That ' s normal, it ' s natural in football. "

The Dutch won an early lead through a penalty kick by Robin van Persie three minutes into the game.

The referee blew into his whistle after Silva pulled down Holland’s Arjen Robben who was slicing up Brazil’s defense line at the beginning of the match.

The Manchester United man scored his fourth goal of the tourney by lashing the ball into the top right corner of the net.

Daley Blind doubled the lead for Holland in the 17th minute by hitting the ball to the same spot as Van Persie did with his penalty after it was headed backward by David Luiz rather than over the bar.

Brazil tried to take at least one back during the rest of the match and particularly in the second half but did not manage to break the Netherland’s defense line.

In the added time of the second half, midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum gave his team the third goal on a pass by Daryl Janmaat.

The Brazilians bid farewell to the World Cup at their home with 10 goals in their last two matches.
