FULL TIME: Brazil 0-3 Netherlands.
The Brazilian nightmare is finally over. After Thiago Silva had committed footballing suicide in the opening 60 seconds, Robin van Persie duly converted his spot-kick. While the challenge may have been outside of the area, the PSG man was the last man and so is mightily lucky to still be on the pitch.
Just fourteen minutes later, Daley Blind then doubled the Netherlands' lead after David Luiz's awful header straight fell into his path. Georginio Wijnaldum, with just moments to go, then added a gloss to the scoreline for the Dutch.
Louis van Gaal is now destined for the Premier League while Luiz Felipe Scolari's future is not quite so certain.
