#Brazil2014: Brazil Open Tournament With Victory Over Croatia

share on:

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is finally underway, with Brazil prevailing over Croatia in the opening fixture.

2 goals from Neymar and a sublime Oscar finish pushed the hosts to a 3-1 victory.

The South American giants started on the wrong foot, with a Marcelo own goal giving the Croatians a surprise lead.

The lead was short-lived however, as Neymar equalized with a weak left-footed effort that sneaked in off the upright.

Referee Yuichi Nishimura put himself in the spotlight after he awarded the Selecao a penalty in the 70th minute, which Neymar converted.

Chelsea midfielder Oscar scored a final goal in injury time to seal the deal and guarantee a full 3 points for Brazil.
