Short Match Review:

Brazil were no where near their best but luck and home advantage saw them through against a resiliant Croatian side who never gave it till the third Brazil goal. Croatia took the lead with lucky own goal and Brazil did created a few chances before Neymar scored the equaliser but he should not have been on the pitch as he escaped with just a yellow card in the earlier incident.

Fred dived his way to get a very soft penalty which Neymar converted with a bit more luck as Keeper almost saved it, and than came the killer blow in 90th minute when Oscar made a wonderful run with ball and finished with outside of his foot to make it 3-1 for home nation.
