Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar has admitted the Netherlands deserved to progress to the World Cup 2010 semi-finals.
Speaking to the press, he said: "The trust of the Brazilian fans was high. I think football is eleven against eleven and in the second half they deserved the result.
"We didn't react well to the first goal. It was a ball that I had doubts on how to go to the ball with Melo. Those are things that happen in football. We have to hold our heads high.
"The pressure in Brazil is always big. But it was worth it for the campaign and for getting here. It's a very sad feeling."
