Norwich City youngsters Adam Idah and Simon Power saw their hopes of victory at the Toulon Tournament ended yesterday.
Both featured in the Republic of Ireland Under-21s' semi-final clash with Brazil's Under-22s, but it was the South Americans who went through, 2-0.
Brazil will now play Japan's Under-22s, who beat their Mexican counterparts on penalties.
Idah started the last-four encounter in Toulon, but was replaced by Aaron Drinan with 83 minutes gone, while Power came off the substitutes' bench after 54 minutes, replacing Stephen Mallon.
Brazil missed a penalty after just four minutes, but they went ahead on 15 minutes when Paulinho scored, with Matheus Cunha increasing the lead two minutes after the half-time interval.
