Brazil looks to bounce back after an embarrassing semi-final outing while Netherlands look to spoil the hosts.

The finals are set and the championship game is right around the corner with Argentina and Germany set to compete for all the glory, but first Brazil and Netherlands hit the field for the consolation, third-place match.

Today's matchup

Brazil v. Netherlands

This game may be hard for Brazilian fans to swallow, seeing that their enemies in Argentina are playing in the finals on their own home field, while they are stuck cheering for a game that doesn't mean much. After losing Neymar and captain Thiago Silva for the the semi-final match against Germany, Brazil put up one of the worst performances in World Cup history, falling 7-1 to the Germans. From the onset, Germany controlled the game and looked like they were playing against a middle school team.

The Netherlands narrowly lost a berth to their second straight World Cup finals when Argentina ousted them in penalty kicks. Holland used up all three of their substitutes and couldn't put the heroic goalie from the quarterfinals Tim Krul in the game. Argentina calmly delivered all four of their penalties while Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder were both denied by Argentine keeper Sergio Romero.

Players to watch

Brazil: No. 11 Oscar
