The Brazilian team did not meet the expectations in the World Cup 2014 and was largely by the disappointing performance of their offense.
At the start of the tournament, the team coached by Luiz Felipe Scolari was the favorite to finish as the team with the most goals scored, however, they have achieved 11 so far and against Mexico they even finished goalless.
The striker Hulk, who came to this World Cup as one of the stars of Brazil national team, has failed to score and in the match for the third place against the Netherlands is listed at Bodog online sportsbook with 3.5 Odds to get a goal.
The Brazilian attacker has participated in five games in the World Cup and was only absent in the second game of the first round against Mexico due to an injury. In 380 minutes on the pitch has made 13 shots, the most by a player in this tournament without getting a goal.
Hulk, who signed with Zenit in 2012 for £32 million, has been one of the great disappointments of the World Cup. The only goal he was able to get was during the second round match against Chile, but the English referee Howard Webb dismissed it because he controlled the ball with his hand.
During the same game, former Porto striker continued his goal drought in the penalty shootout, where the Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo stopped his shot. In addition, he has been unable to give an assist in the World Cup and received a yellowcard.
Hulk had only five shots on target from 16 attempts in the tournament and against the opposing defenses he has lost the ball on 15 of 27 attempts to beat his man. The player is listed with 5.0 Odds to get the first goal of his team against the Netherlands.
Hulk’s fans have been waiting for his goals for a month. He should say goodbye to the World Cup with a good performance against the orange squad to give joy to them and his team.
