Host country fans show their disgust

AFP | Update:



Brazil fans expressed disgust with their team after the hosts lost 3-0 to the Netherlands in the third-place playoff Saturday.

"I am suporting Holland -- our team is useless," spat businessman Diogo Chaer, who wore a Dutch shirt in Brasilia.

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 Dutch largely outplayed the five-time world champions.

"I'm off to another party. Dreadful match," said Francisco Ramos, a 21-year-old soldier wearing a Brazil strip.

Fans said they would rather Germany win than see neighbours Argentina lift the trophy Sunday in Rio.

"The Argentines can just go home," said Eduarda Alves, a Rio student aged 16.
