Winner: [to be updated after game]
Score: Netherlands(2) vs Brazil(1)
68′ Sneijder (Netherlands)
53′ Melo (Netherlands)
10′ Robinho (Brazil)
This is a hurt breaker as Brazil got eliminated by Netherlands. Brazil is ranked number 1 in FIFA and they were expected to win this year and not get eliminated in the quarter-finals.
Brazil scored a goal quickly on the 10th minute via a breakaway by Robinho. That goal proved to be the final score by Brazil.
Netherlands would not go away and they got their equalizer on the 53rd minute on a huge error by Julio Ceasar, goalkeeper of Brazil. The goalkeeper went ahead and charged to the ball where he hit on a collision with fellow Brazilian.
Sneijder got a goal via a header pass from fellow dutchman who got the ball via a free kick from Arjen Robben. That was a beautiful goal which freezed Julio Ceasar on his tracks.
Netherlands played aggressively even when they got the lead were Brazilian Melo lost his temper and was sent off with a red card.
I think that was a stupid move, the Finals is in the line and this guy losing it at the biggest stage in the world was unacceptable.
This was a historic upset and Brazil bowing out after leading most of the way via the goal of Robinho. The Brazilian squad never showed urgency until Netherlands scored the second goal from which Brazil attacked aggressively but Netherlands just wouldn’t move an inch. These guys stayed with the five time champions every step of the way.
