Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 14, 2014

The Netherlands team are back home after a World Cup in which they finished third, and they have thanked fans with a full-page advert in two major papers in their home country.

"Obrigado", they write at the top, which is Portuguese for "thank you."

From Arjen [Robben] to Wesley [Sneijder] in alphabetical order, each player in the squad signs off with their first names.
