thumbnail Hello,

The Santos striker was one of his country's brighter performers against the Dutch but ultimately their failure to force an opening cost them and the crowd responded negatively

Brazil striker Neymar admitted his disappointment after his country's goalless draw in their friendly at home to World Cup finalists the Netherlands, and said that they paid the price for not being clinical enough.

The Chelsea target was one of his side's better players and was involved in their best attacking moves but at the same time he found it difficult against a well-organised and disciplined Dutch defence.

"We did not fulfil our objective because we wanted to win. Our team deserved it for what we did in the second-half but we squandered a lot of chances," he told ESPN Brazil.

A red card for Chelsea midfielder Ramires did not help Brazil's cause in the second-half, which proved frustrating for the hosts as their fans began to get on their backs, voicing their disapproval from the stands.

"Of course, nobody wanted to hear the booing," he said. "We could have scored a goal but we could not take our chances.

"We were a man short but I do not know if it was deserved or not - that is only down to the referee."
