The Netherlands claimed third place in the FIFA World Cup as some clinical finishing ensured Brazil's home finals ended on a losing note.

In front through Robin van Persie's third-minute penalty in Brasilia, Daley Blind doubled the Dutch lead 14 minutes later and the Netherlands never looked like letting that early advantage slip. Indeed, Georginio Wijnaldum made it three a minute into added time as the Oranje finished third in the tournament for the first time.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    All over and the Dutch are confirmed as the bronze medal winners, some clinical finishing proving the difference between the sides in Brasilia.
  • Substitution
    90+3
    Vorm (in) - Cillessen (out) (Netherlands)
    A nice moment from Louis van Gaal, who substitutes his goalkeeper for the second time. Michel Vorm was the only member of the Netherlands squad not to play a minute at this tournament; he has now.
  • Goal
    90+1
    Wijnaldum (Netherlands) scores!
    More clinical finishing from the Dutch wraps up a well-deserved and ultimately comfortable win. Again Arjen Robben is the architect, holding on to possession before freeing Daryl Janmaat down the right. The cross is pulled back and Georginio Wijnaldum applies the decisive touch.
  • Substitution

    Veltman (in) - Clasie (out) (Netherlands)

    Hulk (in) - Ramires (out) (Brazil)
    One last throw of the dice from Brazil as the FC Zenit forward comes on; he has 17 minutes to make an impact.
