Netherlands player has head stapled during World Cup match with Brazil (VIDEO)

Who said third place doesn't count?

Just before halftime of Saturday’s consolation game against Brazil, the Netherlands' Dirk Kuyt suffered a nasty gash to his head that sent a stream of blood spilling down his neck. Even though the Dutch were leading 2-0 on two early goals, Kuyt was determined to finish out what would be his final international match, as was announced prior to the World Cup.

To stop the bleeding, the Dutch utility player went to the sideline, got on his knees and let the medical staff apply staples to his head, without any medication. Kuyt returned for the second half to help the Netherlands close out its 3-0 win against Brazil and clinch the bronze.
