Brazil Player Ratings
Julio Cesar 6 - Had some errors but made up for them with decent saves towards the end as Croatia mounted pressure.
Daniel Alves 6 - Got forward down the wing lots, but looked slow tracking back and stopping crosses.
Thiago Silva 6 - Didn’t do anything wrong, but didn’t do anything special either, a non plus game for Silva.
David Luiz 6 - Looked reasonably solid and got forward well but his heading was especially poor.
Marcelo 6 - Was unlucky with the goal but occasionally helped going forward.
Paulinho 6 - Sacrificed at 1-1 for an attacking player and didn’t have much of a chance to make an impact on the game.
Gustavo 7 - Played well and did what the team asked of him, just didn't exercise any real defining moments.
Oscar 8 - Star player. Excellent crosses, always got the ball into dangerous positions and executed a crafty toe poked goal.
Fred 5 - May have won the penalty, dubious as it was. But was non-existent for most the game.
Neymar 7 - Highs and lows in the game, bagged a brace but lost the ball in position a few times and his theatrics left much to be desired.
Hulk 5 - Tried to get forward as best he could but much like Fred he was missing most of the game.
Hernanes 5 - N/A
Bernard 5 - N/A
Ramires 5 - N/A
