Top five conclusions: Holland 2-1 Brazil
1. Brazil make great winners and really bad losers. Their ill-discipline virtually killed off their chances and their decision not to bother defending at all in the last five minutes was embarrassing.
2. If Brazil were going to go out, a Wesley Sneijder header was not where we would have put our money on where the knockout blow was going to come from.
3. Great game for Felipe Melo. Own goal for Holland’s first goal, lost his marker for Wesley Sneijder to score with a free header for the second goal, and then promptly got sent-off.
4. Holland’s creative players – particularly Sneijder and Arjen Robben – deserve credit for out-Braziling Brazil. Their pace and flair put their opponents on the backfoot in the second half and they couldn’t cope.
5. I reckon we can safely conclude that Dunga is available to hire, if you are interested.
