The Netherlands played a great game against Brazil, and Brazil score a early goal By Robinho, and in the first half Brazil look really good, but when the second half came it went downhill for Brazil. When Brazil score that first goal the Netherlands were calm and didn't let that goal bother them. Brazil will have another chance in 2014 when they host it and try to win a 6th fifa world cup on home soil.

"It took us about 25 minutes to deal with our nerves, and I was pleased to be only 1-0 down at the interval. During the break I told them to play their usual game during the second half. Once we scored our first goal we played much better," Bert van Marwijk, Netherlands coach.
