Neymar fires Brazil to comeback victory!

Star: Neymar shined for Brazil as they beat Croatia in their opening World Cup game

Neymar was the star of the show as Brazil came from behind to secure a hard-fought 3-1 victory over Croatia in the opening match of the FIFA World Cup™. The hosts’ star No10 equalised after Marcelo’s own-goal, and converted a second-half penalty after Fred had been fouled by Dejan Lovren.

Croatia had the ball in the net before the end of the game, but Ivica Olic was adjudged to have fouled Julio Cesar in the build-up, and Oscar made sure of the victory late on.

Neymar fires Brazil to comeback victoryThe opening goal of the 2014 World Cup was remarkable in itself, the first own-goal scored by a Brazilian in the history of the tournament. Ivica Olic received the ball on the Croatia left and ran unopposed into the Brazilian half. His low cross fizzed across goal and was turned in by Marcelo, who failed to readjust his feet in time. Ivan Perisic was ready to pounce if the Real Madrid man had not made the final touch.

The crowd were stunned, but they rallied behind their side, who were level before the half-hour mark. Oscar worked hard to regain possession for Brazil in the middle of the park, before passing the ball to Neymar. The Barça man skipped free of a Perisic challenge, steadied himself, and fired hard and low with his left foot across Pletikosa. The ball rebounded off the post, nestled into the back of the Croatia net and the Arena de Sao Paulo erupted.

The remainder of the first half saw Brazil dominate possession, with Croatia looking dangerous on the counter-attack.

After more Seleção pressure in the second-half, the hosts went ahead. The ball was played into the box towards Fred, who tried to swivel to hit it towards goal. He was impeded by Lovren and the referee pointed to the spot. Neymar stepped up, delayed his run-up, and hit hard to Pletikosa’s right-hand side. Croatia’s No1 got a hand to it, but could not stop it putting Brazil ahead.

Brazil: Beat two men before providing the ball from which Neymar scored, and showed ambition.

Despite a valiant effort by Croatia, including their disallowed goal, Brazil wrapped up the three points when Oscar fired home from the edge of the box.

Man of the match: Neymar was outstanding for Brazil in their 3-1 win

Shakira: Rihanna Is ‘The Sexiest Woman On The Planet’

“Working with [Rihanna] was utopia,” Shakira said in Glamour, as she was the cover of their February 2014 issue. ”She’s the sexiest woman on the planet.

Shakira ft Rihanna Premiere ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’: Hear It Here!

Bad boy alert! Shakira and Rihanna have fallen hard for the wrong guy on their duet, “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” which debuted on Monday (January 13).

The up-tempo single has Latin and Island flourishes that slightly recall Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven”. Thematically, it pays homage to Shakira’s 2007 duet with Beyoncé “Beautiful Liar.”

The trade lines about a guy they just can’t let go. “Oh oh oh oh/ I can’t remember to forget you/ I keep forgetting I should let you go/ But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight/ Oh oh oh oh/ I can’t remember to forget you,” they each sing on the chorus.

So, how deep do Shakira and Rihanna’s feelings for this guy run? They break it down later on in the song, singing, “I rob and I kill to keep him with me/ I do anything for that boy/ I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight/ I do anything for that boy.”

The song will be featured on Shakira’s upcoming album, the follow-up to 2010′s Sale el Sol. The Colombian-born pop star also announced Monday that the album will drop March 25.

Shakira explained the duet after debuting the track on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.

“You know, we’re both from the Caribbean so I always thought we had that common ground, but this song is pretty reggae,” noting it has a rock sound that she feels Rihanna also embodied. “I honestly thought it would never happen… She heard the record and she loved it and she said she was onboard and I was the happiest girl alive,” she said. “To shoot the video with her has been a blast.”

So, what inspired the track? Well, not Shakira’s relationship with her baby daddy, Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique. “I’m going through a completely different experience right in relation to the song. The song is about that guy that just gets under your skin and you can’t leave alone. I think every woman has been through that. This song is not exactly a reflection of my personal life right now,” she said, calling from Barcelona where she putting the finishing touches on the album.

In addition to new music, she will return to “The Voice” on February 24 with guest mentor Miranda Lambert joining her team. “I don’t know [how Blake Shelton feels]. I don’t care much,” she teased. “I’m excited to come back. I have this strategy designed only to take him down.”
