Brazil 1, Croatia 0: A player with a nickname Beavis and Butthead could love scored late in the first half to get the defending champs off on the right foot. Kaka's goal in the final minute before halftime enabled the Brazilians to win their eighth straight game at the World Cup, a new record. The hero last time, Ronaldo, played poorly, and was jeered off the field late in the game. Brazil, the only team to have appeared in every World Cup, has not lost an opener in 72 years.
