GIF: Brazil’s Marcelo Gifts Croatia Early World Cup Lead With Own Goal


Brazil got off to the worst possible start in the opening game of the 2014 World Cup when it gave Croatia an early first-half lead thanks to an own goal by left back Marcelo.

After Croatia sent a low-driven cross into the penalty box, one of its forwards failed to put a quality attempt on the net. But the visitors got lucky when the ball deflected off the Real Madrid defender and past Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
