Here is a brief recap of what happened in Group A and the present standings. Brazil started the tournament poorly, but were saved by all of the refs bad calls and beat Croatia 3-1. Mexico also had bad luck with the refs and scored 3 goals, but only beat Cameroon 1-0 (two goals were called offsides when they weren’t). So as it stands Brazil are in first with three points and leading second place Mexico (three points) by one goal in goal differential. Cameroon is in 3rd with 0 points and Croatia is in last with 0 points (they are trailing Cameroon in goal differential by one goal). So that is how Group A stands at the end of match day 1.
