Brazil gets knocked out of the World Cup but still gets the fourth spot, but that is of little consolation to the millions of Brazil fans that had hoped the team would bring back the World Cup on home soil. Many have been disappointed with the Brazilian team's performance in this World Cup but maybe the expectation was just too great.

Some people have criticized Neymar for supporting Messi and Mascherano in the final with Germany, but hey...they are friends and team mates in FC Barcelona so what is wrong to support your friends ?
Just because Brazil has that national rivalry with Argentina it does not mean a person has to sacrifice his friendships. Kudos for him to stand by his friends instead of following the crowd and making it a political rivalry.
Now Netherlands grabs 3rd place and again denied the World Cup, as history almost repeats it's self from 2010. They actually reached the finals that time but were denied by Spain.
So close yet so far. The 3 goals by Van Persie, Blind and Wijnaldum secured them the consolidation prize, but Netherlands will have to wait another four years to have another chance to prove the Oranje are the top team in the world.
