Brazil opened the World Cup with a 3-1 win over Croatia, with Neymar scoring two goals and Oscar adding a late third to lead the host Selecao. It wasn't easy, though, as Croatia took a stunning lead off Marcelo's 11th-minute own goal, and it took a controversial penalty call for Brazil to take the lead. Regardless, the tournament favorite will take the three points and move on with an early lead in Group A.

Here's how it all unfolded:
