why have modric a 7.5 i dont saw a good performance ?!
@wawa He was good. Anyway, Whoscored's ratings are based on statistics. Look at player statistics to see why he got 7.5.
So, the penalty shouldn't have been awarded, the Croatia goal should have stood and the Oscar goal shouldn't have stood (Rakitic fouled). Neymar could have been red carded (could have gone either way). On top of this the stats are very strange for this game. 20 fouls to 5. I'd like to think the referee has just crumbled under the pressure and panicked. He's been intimidated by the atmosphere and awarded everything to Brazil subconsciously out of fear. But he has robbed Croatia of at least a draw, if not a win. My gut feeling says the referee actually went out of his way to make sure Brazil won the game.
@Focus it was better if referee ruled out all 11 players of brasil and croatia was scored 10 goals,,,but brasil is the real god of football my bro,,never forget it,,,england is nothing in compare with those heroes,,just keep calm and try to be pragmatic ,this cup belongs to magnificent brasil and quarter final could be the most precious achievement for your sunless boys
@alitavassoli You're talking absolute rubbish mate.
@Ivannnnn sorry mate but there were so many controversial decisions against brasil in previus world cups,,,the statement of mr or mrs focus is soooo rigorous and it should reduce the bad intentions about 5 times world champions team,,,im trying to be optimistic about all ideas and feelings of every fans but this guy is radically writing expletives words against the strong team which could be cause of England elimination....
@Focus you're absolutely right.The ref was in a panicking state and missed a lot of decisions.
@Focus Are you from Croatia :) ?
@Ivannnnn No. England.
And the Oscar goes to.... Fred
@Messy you made my day
I just wanted to point something out. Croatia's goal was actually dani alves's fault. After watching the game a second time, I noticed that alves sprinted all the way up to the keeper, trying to get a ball that he never would've gotten. The entire right side was open, and he never bothered to get back. Croatia counter attacked down the right, crossed it in, and maybe Brazil could have done better to defend it, but it ended up as a goal.
@KeanaanM I have seen the match and don't really agree that its all Dani's fault.It mainly is but the rest of the rest of the players behind should also take a blame for it.Paulinho for example should not have rushed to tackle Rakitic leaving Olic free.instead,he should have draw back and waited for extra support before making a tackle.Silva sholud have done better by putting Olic off enough to make a poor cross,Luiz should have not left the cross and Marcelo well,should have done better with clearing duties.
@KeanaanM Several players were at fault. Sometimes the wing backs are caught forward. Someone is supposed to fill in. Oscar or Paulinho didn't cover. Silva didn't get there or get a block in. Gustavo wasn't alive enough to cut out the cross after filling in at right centre back and nor was Luiz. Marcelo didn't anticipate it missing everything like he should have. You can't really say this is 'Dani Alves' fault' can you....
@Focus yeah I guess not. It really never is one person's fault
poor croatia I feel sorry for them, it easily could have been a draw or maybe a close win for them
Referee team from the beginning
Brazil is not convincing. Space behind Marcelo and Alves, less solid than expected for the CDs in the air, positioning problem of Paulinho, and pressure of playing at home. Limit: quarter final or semi final
I will never watch fooball again, protecting the interest of smaller number of people in front of 2-3 billion viewers. And "felipao" said "it was a penalty because referee sais so and I agree with him". But it was not only this dive, Croatia was humiliated with other bad decisions too - the crucial ones.
Cesar had more touches than Fred lmao
Guys what do you think about ceasar? For me it was a nightmare to watch him, he was sooooo weak, in my opnion brazil won't win the world cup when they keep playing him. He is so slow and can't catch a ball, he reminds me of an weak african goalie like the one from cameron. Jefferson should play, can't be any worse than ceasar
@arsenal27 why are u mocking Africa? you who cant even use words correctly.
"an weak".You should be ashamed of yourself.
without help from refree, this game could have been DRAW.
@glauconascimento Croatia had a disallowed goal. With that logic it should have been 2-2.
@glauconascimento And even the Oscar goal followed after a foul on Rakitić!
@glauconascimento are you stupid, at 1-1 oscar gets nowhere near the net in injury time.
was that really oscar on that field?! this boy was ON FIRE! he gave everything as if this was his last match. incredible perfomance! i hope he keeps on fighting like that in the next matches.
fred 7.1?? for what? don't tell me for that stupid dive!
too pitty for croatia , deserved draw. Bad ref
pffffff Croatia deserved to win or draw...but yeah at least a draw.
home tournament team always have a little help ^.^
one of the most accurate toepokes iv ever seen
Neymar 8.8, but only first goal was a result of his effort.
Rest? Crooked penalty (barely got in) mean fouls, bad passes and stupid tricks.
@El_Duderino Neymar played very well
the ref should have the tag, not Lovren
@Deljuve@khonda hahaha nice one
Fred The Diver
Lol Fred 7.1 ? Why?
he got it for the artistic dive ;) created a goal from nothing ;)
It was cleary.
@El_Duderino Yeah I now saw the reply. Rarely do I see a more clear foul.
@DelJuve pretty sure it was 70 - 5.5. That last touchdown by lebron was great in the final inning.
@khonda ? Why all the downvote? I just restated my prediction.
Oscar MOTM just barely snubbed that honour from the ref.
Oscar: man of the match, easily.
Croatia are getting robbed here. This is disgusting from the officials.
fuc*~ng home bonus penalty ref
Brazil can be proud
Any doubt? With the riots all over the country and all the money spent, Brazil cannot and will not loose this WC.
Even with fake penalties...
Obvious dive is somehow not so obvious. GG ref
Unuseful player kovacic. Always a ghost on the pitch, uneffective in defense, doesn't give an effort in offensive phase loosing several balls.
Fred with only 7 touches he needs to get more involved!
@rhysdesmond47 he needs to be replaced, not involved
Brazil dominating Croatia. Expect 1 or 2 more second half goals for a comfortable Brazil win.
Why is Hulk playing when Willian is so much better?
@Godfather_I It's an opinion. I find Hulk to be good just like Willian. They're just different players.
Neymar 32 @22
That equalizer was always coming, question is will the flood gates open now that the monkey is off the back.
Defending at its worst
@sun I still cannot believe Chelsea got 50 for Luiz. Schoolboy marking for the OG.
Olic is on fire
Olic! This dude though, still remember his glorious 2:1 for Bayern against Manchester as if it were yesterday. Gotta love him
brazil 3-1 crotia but i love to see 1-1
Brazil 2-0 Croatia
First to score in this game, will win it. Realistically Brazil will score within the opening 20 minutes. However, if Croatia holds Brazil scoreless through the hour mark, this could get interesting. But 2-1 sounds like a good prediction, Brazil will be up 2-0 before Croatia chips a late goal through a set play (free kick or penalty). Personally I see a 3-1 win for Brazil.
Good luck to both teams! I hope they put on a good show for the world.
This could be one of the games of the tournament
@Focus This is certainly one game of the tournament LOL!
@Ivannnnn It's an expression. It means it could be one of the best games to watch
@Focus Forget the final, semis, or even the QFs but this game has to be one of the games of the tournament.... ok.....
3:1 Brazil. Fred to score 1st
Can't wait to see Rakitic in a Barca shirt.
3:1 or 3:0 easily
Get real people. Croatia is pretty good. But Brazil in Brazil in the opening match of the WC? No way.
Well I guess it could have gone either way though.
Not pretty, but Brazil made it at start.
@blitz I'm not convinced by Croatia either. Really don't know what to expect from them. And I'm from Croatia :).
@blitz How come then they sucked against Panama and Serbia? This Brazil hasn't convinced me. They could easily be whisteled out by their own fans if things don't go well right away and home ground could put pressure on them.
yellow cards under 4.5
@Nemeth Yeah, referee is hard on cards.
Under 2.5 Goals
2-0 Brazil WİN
Come on Brazil, you must win!
@worldcup No, they must not.
lets begin! cant wait
I am so exited!!!
I can see a Croatia dominating in possession, despite losing 2-0 or 3-1.
If you cheer for Brazil thumb up this comment.
If you cheer for Croatia thumb down this comment.
@Ivannnnn Wow... Seems like many people support Croatia tonight.
Brazil 1:2 Croatia
Rakitic will score,2-2 at the final !!!
2-0 for Brazil but i expect Croatia to advance despite the defeat in the first game.
Brazil 2-0 Croatia but a hard match
Pranjić is reportedly not going to be ready. Vrsaljko, Vida or maybe even Lovren instead.
Schildenfeld most probably in for Lovren.
Not sure about Vukojević, don't think he will play much in this WC but he could play against Brazil to help the defence.
Jelavić(or even Eduardo) could play up front with Olić going on wing and Vukojević out.
@Ivannnnn Brazilian don't care about these things,,they already have 3 points in their hands
cant wait to watch this ganme，lol
Eduardo up front. Olic/Perisic on the wings, Kovacic in behind
I don't think Kovacic will start on the left
i predict Brazil under too much pressure and will flop, 2-1 for Croatia
bet365 Brazil to win 1.3 really? 1.6 is much more realistic. If I had money I would put on draw 5.0
