Host of the World Cup, the national team of Brazil beat Croatia 3-1 in the opening of the World Cup, and it’s got great help from Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura, who ruled suspicious penalty for “cariocas” in 71th minute in the meeting. Double scorer was Neymar, realizing the penalty and Oscar in injury time of the match scored the third goal.
The first star of the Brazilians, Neymar was a man of decision, since he scored the penalty, and earlier, in the first part, in 29.minute scored a beautiful goal to beat Stipe Pletikosa.
The first goal of the World Cup was the work of Brazilian left-back Marcelo,after a poor intervention when in 11th minute managed to put the ball in his own net.
Brazilians are not impressed with their opening game of the World Cup, Croatia was equal and fought great, and it seems that the decisive factor was awarded a penalty triumph over Fred. Croatian national team defender Dejan Lovren, started, but it seems that with Fred acting skills managed to dribble judge Nishimura to show on the spot.
Neymar equalized such a gift and bring a victory to Brazil starting in the World Cup. Oscar just finishing the job.
