Brazil's first consecutive home defeats since 1940

Brazil's 3-0 loss to Netherlands spells first consecutive home defeats since 1940

Brazil's disappointing World Cup campaign has seen the five-time champions break many records, with the latest coming in their 3-0 loss to Netherlands

Brazil's 2014 World Cup campaign has turned from a dream to a total nightmare for the home fans.

The five-time champions kicked off their campaign with a bang, winning the opening game 3-1 against Croatia, but the tournament became a nightmare for them as they fell to a humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany in the semi-finals, ending their 62 competitive games unbeaten run.

22-year-old ace Neymar's injury, accompanied with Thiago Silva's suspension, saw Brazil's World Cup hopes come to a cruel end. More misfortune was to come for the host nation as they lost their third-place final match against Netherlands 3-0 with goals coming from Robin van Persie, Daley Blind, and Georginio Wijnaldum dooming the 2002 winners to a fouth-place finish. 

More tears for Brazil fans as the Selecao lost the third-place final to Netherlands 3-0

This result saw Brazil become only the third side in World Cup history, alongside Saudi Arabia and North Korea, to concede 12+ goals in a single tournament. This was also the first time the Selecao lost consecutive games since 1974, and was their first consecutive home losses since 1994. 

The five-time champions were unable to produce the magic that the world has gotten used to seeing from Brazil

As they suffered their first consecutive defeats since 1974 

And lost first back-to-back home matches since 1940 

The fans had gotten frustrated with Brazil's performance as they were not impressed with the Selecao side, with many slamming the team on Twitter. 

Brazil supporters calling for Scolari to leave 

David Luiz, in particular, was singled out as he was present at both Brazil's 7-1 and 3-0 losses 

This comes after the 27-year-old joined mega-rich Ligue 1 side PSG on a £50m deal? Overrated?

Miss the Brazil of old? 

Some did give the host nation credit
