    Worst game in football but it will be kind of fascinating to watch Brazil.

    What if Brazil doesn't defend again, and the Dutch play negatively like they did today? Just be the ball sitting by itself in midfield with everyone watching.

    Since it doesn't mean much I imagine teams play far more freely. (Hopefully)

    Can someone explain to me the point of figuring out who the second vs. the third loser is?

    I'd be shocked if the manager of the Brazilian football team isn't fired before this game.

    I'll be watching. Purely for the 'how the hell will brazil react' factor.

    To be like the Olympics maybe? I dunno.

    IMO it would be better as an early kick-off on the day of the final. A warm-up if you will.

    The 'third place' game is a parody that is little more a sad embarrassment to the players and their fans alike. You could argue that the game is a chance for the players to redeem themselves a bit, but I'm 99% sure that all the Brazilian and Dutch players want to do is to return home and put their feet up with their families and friends.

    FIFA really needs to take a hard look at this piece sporting stupidity and dump it. After all, can anyone remember the third place winner from 1998, or even 2006 without Googling it? And even if the odd person does remember, do they really care?

    I doubt it'll be dumped, because more games = more money.

    Van Persie to confirm the ridiculousness of this match by scoring four penalties and winning the Golden Boot.
