True story: My dad phoned me up yesterday and asked for Fantasy Football advice. I said, "Get some cheap midfielders and spend the cash making sure you get any two of Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar. Guess which one he left out....
That was the first World Cup penalty converted since Robert Vittek for Slovakia against Netherlands in the 2010 Round of 16.
This is Neymar's seventh multi-goal game for Brazil.
In fairness to referee Nishimura, that looked like a penalty in real time. It wasn't, he's been conned and I would expect all the other referees to be watching with interest. Don't be surprised if Neymar goes on a Luis Suarez-style run of not getting a penalty even when he's beaten with sticks.
CLOSE FOR LUIZ! The soon-to-be PSG defender leaps in the air and meets a header from five yards on the stretch but can only put it over - the real kicker is that Neymar was waiting behind him to tap in for a hat-trick.
Neymar's 33rd international goal in 50 caps. He's now tied for seventh on Brazil's career scoring list.
David Luiz makes a very risky tackles in the box here on Perisic, but somehow wins the ball. A great challenge in the end, but so close to being a penalty.
I think you're right, Jesse. Neymar will get the headlines, but Oscar has got better and better as the game has developed.
The ball's in the net for Croatia, but it's ruled out!
Now that is a poor decision. If the referee has blown for a foul by Olic, I'm amazed. He didn't do much wrong there at all
Julio Cesar flaps at a cross as the ball is won by Olic, and a teammate turns the ball home from close range - but a flag was raised and the whistle already blown, presumably for the altercation on the goal-line. Close, that.
