For example, if the Brazilian football team (eleven Brazilian boys) came in fourth place.

Then you would say "The eleven Brazilian boys are fourth" not the fourth. I don't think you can say "the fourth" in the context you gave - adding "the" only makes sense if it's followed by something, e.g. "the eleven Brazilian boys are the fourth team to win the title."
