World Cup kickoff

Brazil vs Croatia. The World Cup. The Groups. Discuss freely amongst yourselves.

UPDATE: Severely underwhelmed by Brazil. Croatia was the better team, and indeed, probably should have won 2-1 rather than losing 3-1. Instead, Brazil was gifted a penalty on a dive, then Croatia was robbed of a goal on a nonexistent foul before Oscar scored the finishing goal in injury time.

I did think Oscar’s kiddie-style toe-kick from outside the box was clever, though, as it caught the goalie completely off-guard. But it was surprising to see the that it was the Croatian midfield successfully playing keepaway, and not the Brazilians.
