I love watching soccer, especially the World Cup. What I can't stand is all the horrible sportsmanship... Diving, flopping, faking injuries. I can see how all of this puts a bad taste in people's mouths.

Brasil should have won even though that pk was garbage. That goal by Oscar was a thing of beauty.

Good opening match for Brazil. Controversial officiating, but that's how it goes. It's going to be an exciting tourney, hope we can at least make the quarter-finals.

Garbage. Brazil looked flat. I thought the match was even, Croatia slightly better. The PK call was garbage. The fix is in. There is no way that was a penalty. I hated the way Brazil played - flopping and diving.

What was the real difference in the match? Goalkeeping. First and third goals were easy, cheap goals that a better GK stops. He should have had the penalty save too. Croatia was a bit unlucky.

There was no way on earth that the Brazil team out there tonight wins the World Cup. There are far better teams than Croatia that would have destroyed Brazil tonight.

Croatia had their fair share of luck, first goal of the match was an own goal.

PK was extremely debatable, but he did grab and tug at his shoulder. That gave the official enough reason to make the call. That's all it takes sometimes, especially Brazil in Brazil...

Brazil got over the first game jitters. There's a lot of political BS in Brazil right now that putting even more pressure on their team to win, not just perform well. They got over that hump tonight. I'm not so sure they will win because there are a lot of good teams this time around, but I think they are still heavy favorites. Along with Spain, Argentina and Germany, of course.

The opening ceremony was horrible.

Except it shouldn't have happened either, because he ran over the Croatian dude to get the ball in the first place. It's rigged.

Completely disagree on the PK. They briefly tangled arms but there is no pull. I watched the call numerous times on replay and there is absolutely nothing that warranted a penalty. The brief overlap of the arms and Fred went down like he was shot. There was no contact in any way that caused the player to go down in the box. It was a blatant dive looking for a call and it disgusts me to see a team of this caliber begging for calls.

As for the first goal, yeah it was a bit of luck. As I stated in an earlier post, a lot of games involve some luck. But over the course of 90 minutes, Croatia proved they weren't a lucky team. They created chances and had some shots on goal. I think they are easily the second best team in the group but I will make my final call on that after Mexico v Cameroon.

With Brazil's defense being exposed like that by Croatia, they will get destroyed against better teams. Sure, it was their first game and they can get better but I was not impressed. They were fantastic last year against Spain in the Confederations Cup (I watched that match with a Brazilian friend). They must get back to that if they have ANY shot at the World Cup.

Agreed. Hell will freeze over before I root for Mexico. Ungrateful little pricks - they wouldn't be in the World Cup if it wasn't for us. But most of the arrogant, entitled morons wouldn't even acknowledge what the US did for them.

I never hated Mexico before last year. It was a good rivalry. However, the way they acted after the US gifted them qualification pissed me off. May they lose every match and go down in flames.

Disagreed. Croatia lost because their keeper couldn't stop 2 easy shots from Neymar and Oscar. Quality GKs make those saves easily. Neither ball was hit hard and Pletikosa was slower than a Clemson offensive lineman after Thanksgiving dinner.

Oscar was the man of the match but Brazil wasn't impressive. I thought the first 20 mins of both halves and the last 10 mins of the match, Croatia was clearly better than Brazil.

Sorry for all the posts but I just finished watching this match an hour ago. The good news is that I had both Oscar and Neymar on my World Cup fantasy team - 41 points from two players. Not a bad start!

We didn't need to lose that match. We just didn't need to win. A draw would have been fine. The late goal in stoppage time is what got Mexico through. That match was completely meaningless for us because we had already clinched the top spot.
