The World Cup has reached the knockout stages and unfortunately there is now only a third-place play-off match with a Manchester United involvement in Brazil following the Netherlands' semi-final defeat to Argentina.

Louis van Gaal's men, which included Dutch captain Robin van Persie, lost 4-2 on penalties to the South Americans who now face Germany in Sunday's final.

Van Persie and the Netherlands will play their final match in the tournament on Saturday evening in the third-place play-off against hosts Brazil, who were sent packing by the Germans in the other last four clash.
