The World Cup waiting is over as today marked the kickoff of the greatest football tournament, the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Similar to the rest of the world, here in Belize all eyes were glued to the television sets to witness the World Cups opening game between the host nation, Brazil and Croatia. But first football fans played witness to what has been deemed as a spectacular opening ceremony costing some $9 million. The ceremony was brought o to a closure by a performance from Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte with a rendition of the official World Cup song "We Are One."
And then it was game time and of course, by now you already know, that Brazil won the opening game three to one. The first two goals for Brazil and for the world cup games were scored by Neymar Jr. at minute 29 and 70 minutes into the game respectively. The third goal for Brazil game from Oscar at minute 91. And the goal of Croatia was an autogoal kicked by Marcelo at minute 11 of the first half. Tomorrow the World Cup Games continue with Mexico versus Cameron at 10:00am, Espana versus Netherlands at 1:00pm and Australia versus Chile at 3:00pm.
