BRASILIA - Brazil fans have expressed disgust with their team after the hosts lost 3-0 to the Netherlands the World Cup third place play-off.
Although it was Germany who thrashed the Selecao 7-1 on their own turf in the semi-final, fans said they would rather Germany lift the World Cup trophy than see neighbours Argentina win in Rio today.
"I am supporting Holland - our team is useless," spat businessman Diego Chaer, who even wore a Dutch shirt in the capital.
In Rio, some fans stayed to the end to dance at a post-match concert - but others slunk away from the Fan Fest on Copacabana beach after the Netherlands largely outplayed the five-time world champions on Saturday (Sunday AEST).
"I'm off to another party. Dreadful match," said Francisco Ramos, a 21-year-old soldier wearing a Brazil strip.
Brazilians began to leave the Fan Fest even before half-time with their side trailing 2-0 and still clearly feeling the effects of their horror show against Germany.
Lucas Carvalho, a 23-year-old electrical engineer, brazenly wore a Dutch jersey and orange top hat, though he added a Brazil scarf.
"I was in Belo Horizonte (for the Germany game). That's why I am wearing the Dutch shirt. I stayed to the end against Germany - I'll remember that historic match for years," he said.
