Brazil – Croatia
Finally, it is month in which the game is the biggest football spectacle. Brazil is not only the favorite in this match, but throughout the tournament still has to have a bit of caution. Much has changed in the Brazil team. Came a new names and a new style and there is no more old technician like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Ze Roberto and others.
Key players of this team are Thiago Silva, Wilian, Dante, Fernandinho, Hulk, Dani Alves, Neymar and others who make awesome team on paper, now remains for them to justify it. Popular Cubic or Fires have a little more trouble especially with injuries. All in their country expect sensation and surprise but how they create pressure on them, and how players can cope with that?

Kovac has managed to put together a solid team that will look for something more on the SP, big names, of course, Modric, Perisic, Olic, Srna, Rakitic, Mandzukic, and lately the public draws attention to Rebića, Vrsaljko, Pranjic, Jelavic. When you really look like Croatia has a solid team, but will be hard to play against a great Brazil.
It’s hard to play the game, especially when you are not exactly sure of the outcome, though realistically Brazil has to win the first game. He will wait for us a tough game no doubt, but I’ll still play this time on goals. I expect that Brazil first and score and then Croatia will have to play a more open and it will be an ideal opportunity to see a few more hits on opening of Worl Cup.
