BRAZIL STARTS IT UP WITH A WIN OVER CROATIA
FIFA WORLD CUP
2002 FIFA World Cup Champion team had come there. Brazil kicked off the first match against Croatia of FIFA World Cup Germany 2006 to grab the two consecutive Cup. Expecting the South American's dominance in the game, I found Brazil's left back Roberto Carlos the most energetic when the Real Madrid player prevented the European side from one of the attacking option. Croatia's key right wing Darijo Srna was busy with defending Roberto Carlos on his own side.
There was also a problem to Brazil. Ronald, who entered the third time World Cup to collect twelve goals in his career, moved heavily to end only one shooting over the bar before the striker was replaced by Robinho, who was first appearance in the World Cup. Dissapointing Ronald! Then it was Kaka who gave the Selecao one step forward the Cup as the Milan's boy fired from outside the box past stretching Stipe Pletikosa.
Croatia, who was forced captain Niko Kovac to replace due to the injury into the second half, tried to create few chance when striker Ivan Klasnic challenged middle shot. Brazilian goalkeeper Dida, however, comfortably saved in front of the Brazil goal to deny Croatian chance with center back Lucio and Juan.
This night, I stayed up by chance at that time when I watched the game that Brazil beat Croatia. During the Group-match of this World Cup, I'm having it record. It is still a point that stay up late. I'm going to be careful about physical condition management because Fun is from this.
