Brazil v Croatia: Marcelo scores the first goal of the 2014 World Cup...for Croatia
Real Madrid left-back scored an own goal in the 11th minute in Sao Paulo
The first goal of the 2014 World Cup has been scored by a Brazilian in Brazil's opening match against Croatia, but not in the way the hosts would have hoped.
Marcelo, the Brazil left-back, opened the scoring with an own goal in the 11th minute, when he directed Ivica Olic's cross into his past goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
It was the first time in World Cup history that the first goal of the tournament was an own goal. It was also the first time Brazil ever scored an own goal in a World Cup match.
