Brazilian soccer star Oscar praised GOD for everything after he scored his first goal in the world cup opener match against Croatia.
The 22-year-old became the first Premier League player to score at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and took just one game to get off the mark for the host nation.
The Chelsea midfielder’s 91st-minute outside-of-the-foot curler past Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa sealed the 3-1 win after Neymar scored twice, getting Brazil off to a perfect start.
Oscar’s Chelsea team-mate David Luiz went close earlier in the World Cup opener – as did Hull City’s Nikica Jelavic for Croatia – but it was Oscar who got the ball rolling for the Premier League in Brazil.
His Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari hailed the impact he put in the match
He said: ‘Neymar got man of the match, but if there was a second award it should go to Oscar.
After the match Oscar remembered to thank GOD and his family. In statement Oscar said:
“Thank you God for everything and the Brazilian fans for all the support! This goal was for my wife Ludy and my daughter Júlia!”
