England v Brazil Friendly Football Match 2013

Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
England 2 – 1 Brazil
11-14-09 England 0-1 Brazil (Friendly)
06-01-07 England 1-1 Brazil (Friendly)

We have to go all the way back to 1990 when Gary Lineker scored the only goal of the match to give the Three Lions a victory over Brazil. Since then, it has not been smooth sailing for the English outfit.
Brazil has not lost in their previous eight meetings with England. Their last victory in an official match came in June of 2002 when goals from Rivaldo and Ronaldinho eliminated Sven Goran Eriksson’s side from the World Cup in Korea/Japan.
From that team, the only returning player for England will be Chelsea defender Ashley Cole, who will reach his 100th international cap for the Three Lions.
The Brazilian side has been struggling as of late, which eventually led to Scolari taking over the manager position.
Scolari knows this team very well and the players know him and his style of play. It may be easy for some players to adapt to him as they have worked for him before, but their may be others who could take some time to adjust.
When you look at Brazil’s star studded roster, you can only scratch your head and wonder how any coach is able to not succeed with so much talent.
Well, Mano Menezes managed to take Brazil on an emotional rollercoaster which led to his dismissal. Surely Scolari should be able to set things straight, but their is no guarantee that he will not annoy some people along the way who disagree with his choices.
The England players will be aware of the challenge they are up against, but playing at home at Wembley Stadium, they should be highly motivated to do well.
They head into the match as underdogs and against one of the world’s most prestigious and talented squads, what do they have to lose?
Hodgson will make sure his side is aware that although they must respect their opponent, they have the same chance as Brazil to win the match.
Current form will not really matter for this match as Brazil will face a transition stage with Scolari in charge, and Hodgson’s players will want the FA celebration to go well. Fans should expect an entertaining match with the English side trying to prove that they can compete with the world’s best. Meanwhile, some of the Brazilian players will be wanting to show that Scolari made the right choice in selecting them.
England 2-2 Brazil
- England: Joe Hart; Glen Johnson, Phil Jagielka, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole; Tom Cleverley, Jack Wilshere, Steven Gerrard; Danny Welbeck, Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott.
- Brazil: Julio Cesar; Dani Alves, David Luiz, Dante, Adriano; Ramires, Paulinho, Oscar; Ronaldinho, Neymar, Luis Fabiano
Brazil will check on the fitness of David Luiz before naming their beginning XI on Wednesday. The Chelsea defender has been announced as the team’s captain by the Brazilian Footy Confederation (CBF) but continues to nurse a calf complaint & may not be risked.
England coach Roy Hodgson has a call to make regarding the shape of his side, with Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney & Danny Welbeck the only recognised strikers in his squad.
