Brazil got off their World Cup campaign to a great start as the hosts came from behind to beat a spirited Croatia 3-1 in Sao Paolo.
Neymar scored a brace to give the hosts the lead after an own goal by Marcelo gave Croatia a shock lead, and Chelsea midfielder Oscar scored a superb third in injury time with an outrageous toe poke after holding off two defenders on his trail.
The 22 year old was immaculate throughout, playing in a wide position on the right after starting in his customary number ten role.

See how Oscar’s toe pokes his effort beyond Croatian goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa which gives the Selecao their third goal.
Brazil will next take on continental rivals Mexico on 17th July while Croatia face Cameroon a day later.
