Amitabh Bachchan was amongst the many football fans who stayed up all night glued to their TV sets for the first FIFA World Cup 2014 match.

The 71-year-old veteran actor shared a picture on his Twitter account, which shows him kicking the Brazil ball, and kept posting updates about the game.

Bachchan, who's a Brazil team fan, asked its players to buck up, and gave a sign of relief when Neymar Jr equalized with a goal, after Marcelo Vieira had scored an own goal, which was also the tournament's very first goal.

And it seems like the actor's prayers were heard, as the Brazilians won the opening match beating Croatia 3-1.
