BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) - Robin van Persie and Daley Blind scored early goals to help give the Netherlands a 3-0 win over host Brazil in the third-place match at the World Cup on Saturday.

With the result, the Netherlands finishes a World Cup unbeaten in regular play for the first time. It lost to Argentina on penalties in the semifinals.

The loss added to Brazil’s frustration at the home tournament following the disastrous 7-1 defeat to Germany.
