Presented is an official match pennant the players entered with from the World Cup FIFA Copa Do Mundo. This one is special because there are only one or two made for each match and they are carried out by the team on to the pitch. The blue pennant itself is embroidered throughout and has a central logo with five stars above it. It showcases the details of the match and measures 12.75″ x 17.5″ (sans tassels).
The match-up was held on 7/12/14 and featured Brasil vs. Netherlands in the third place playoff.
The two teams had met in 11 previous meetings, including four times in the FIFA World Cup: Netherlands won 2–0 in the second group stage of the 1974 World Cup and 2-1 in the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup, and Brazil won 3–2 in the quarter-finals of the 1994 World Cup and 4–2 on penalties after a 1–1 draw (after extra time) in the semi-finals of the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
Brazil made six changes in their starting line-up from their semi-final, while the Netherlands made only two, with Wesley Sneijder, who was originally part of the Dutch starting line-up, replaced by Jonathan de Guzmán after an injury during the pre-match warm-up prevented him from playing. The Netherlands opened the scoring within three minutes, after Robin van Persie converted a penalty kick awarded for a foul on Arjen Robben by Thiago Silva. Daley Blind extended the lead in the 17th minute, scoring after a David Luiz headed clearance fell to him inside the penalty area.
Georginio Wijnaldum completed the scoring in second half injury time as he shot home from substitute Daryl Janmaat’s cross from the right. The Netherlands finished third for the first time in their World Cup history. With Michel Vorm’s participation (who was substituted into the match in second half injury time), the Netherlands became the first team to use all of their 23 players in a World Cup since the finals squads were expanded from 22 to 23 players in 2002. Brazil, who finished fourth for the second time in World Cup history, conceded a total of 14 goals in the tournament, the most they had ever allowed in a World Cup and also the most conceded by any World Cup hosts. Brazil also became the second team to concede 100 World Cup goals, after Germany.
