Brazil lived up to its billing as a favorite to win the World Cup by defeating Croatia 3-1. 

Neymar found the back of the net twice, the first on an accurate long-range shot and the second on a penalty. However, the penalty will be talked about for some time, as the referee award Fred a foul after some very soft contact in the box.

The World Cup continues tomorrow as defending champion Spain takes on the Netherlands.
