World Cup Kick Off Live

The World Cup has kicked off in style with a little help from Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull.

The pair took to the stage at the opening ceremony to perform the official tournament anthem, We Are One, surrounded by hundreds of performers showcasing Brazil's love of colour and movement.

The showcase helped rev up the home crowd who threw their support behind their national team as they opened the month long festival of football.

Brazil went on to beat Croatia in their Group A match, three goals to one.

Our focus now firmly turns to Australia's first game with the Socceroos set to meet Chile in Sao Paolo tomorrow.

Coach Ange Postecoglou says's he's more excited than nervous.

Meantime, the Chilean team is sweating on the fitness of star midfielder Arturo Vidal who is nursing an injured knee.

As tournament underdogs, Australia goes in to the match having never beaten Chile in their four previous encounters.
