  • End of 2nd Half

And that's your lot. Not the most enthralling of encounters, but Southgate will undoubtedly be pleased with England's showing over the past few days. They have held Germany and Brazil to goalless draws. Plenty of positives to draw from.


Lingard loses the ball to Neymar, who runs 50 yards or so before trickling a shot harmlessly wide.

On comes Rose as we enter stoppage time. THREE minutes added on.


CHANCE! Young whips in a dangerous bal and it falls for Solanke at the back post, but it just gets away from him and out comes Allison to put the Liverpool youngster off.


Paulinho on the attack and he looks to slip FIrmino in, but Gomez is there to intercept once more. Brilliant full debut for Gomez.


SAVE! Flowing Brazil move and it's a terrific touch from Paulinho to carry it into the area, but Hart stands tall and sees the Barcelona midfielder's effort cannon off his chest and out for a corner... which Paulinho heads over from.


Superb ball from Marcelo for Willian, but the Chelsea man is a yard offside. He wags his finger, but he was a yard off or so.

And now Ashley Young comes on! His first cap in more than four years...

And his first contribution is a crucial one as he slides across to dispossess Willian, who looked to be through on goal.

Free-kick for England 25 yards out. Dier looks like he wants this one...

WIDE! The Spurs man aims for the keeper's side, but it doesn't have enough swerve on it and it bounces harmlessly wide.

OFF THE POST! Dier loses the ball in the middle of the park, and it's Fernandinho who storms down the pitch before unleashing a fierce low strike, but it clips the outside of the post.


Sub time for England. Vardy and Rashford off, Solanke on for his debut, Abraham on too.




England passing it around nicely, but it all ends with a stray Walker pass. Looking comfortable on the ball, but you get the sense all the players have the weekend of domestic football in the back of their minds.

The England fans are entertaining themselves now by waving their flags around. Wonder if it'll put the wind in their players' sails.


A full debut to remember so far for Gomez. Bertrand gives the ball away to Brazil, but as they come on the attack it's Gomez once more who mops up and wins a free-kick for his troubles.

Still no changes this half from Southgate.


Vardy does well to slkip away from Renato Augusto, but his ball for Rashford is poor. Haven't seen the Leicester man enough with the ball at his feet.


A sight for sore eyes if you're a City fan, particularly with Aguero being rushed to hospital earlier today after fainting at half-time while on international duty with Argentina.

A better sight, thought, is seeing Jesus get up to jog the injury off.


Jesus chests the ball down in the England box but Walker is there to clear. Jesus stays down after colliding with Gomez, it looks like a harmless coming together, which can always be the worry if they call for the trainer.


Rashford gets the Wembley crowd excited for a few seconds, wriggling his way through the Brazil defence in style, but he gets dispossessed at the key moment. Probably time for a change, Gareth.

  • Dani Alves
    Yellow cardDani AlvesBrazilAnd now it's time for Alves to go in the book for a late foul on Bertrand. Not really a shock to see both he and Livermore pick up yellow cards minutes after their wee confrontation.

Good covering from Joe Gomez, who is wise to Paulinho's cross and clears it away.

Rashford is cut down by Casemiro, who wags his finger in disapproval. Chance for England to cross one in... Rashford stands over it.

Maguire gets his head to it but he is all over Jesus and the ref blows for a foul.


No-look pass from Jesus finds Coutinho, but as he looks up to pick out a man to cross the ball to, it bobbles off his standing foot and out for a goal-kick.


Replay of that Coutinho chances shows the Liverpool man was a yard off or so. The ball was intended for Jesus in fact, but he wouldn't have got to it and Coutinho was right to get an effort away.


BIt of handbags between Livermore and Alves. The PSG man not happy after the West Brom man trod on his foot. But Alves doesn't help himself by kicking out a leg when on the ground.


SAVE! Closest we've come to a goal at Wembley! And it's Coutinho who almost sneaks in an opener for the visitors, but his low strike is saved well by Hart.

  • 2nd Half

Back underway in the second half. Looking at the positives, England dealt with everything Brazil had to offer in the first 45. It wasn't as much as one would expect, but still, the Three Lions' defence managed to keep Neymar, Jesus and Coutinho relatively quiet and reduce them to pot shots.

Let's see what the next half has to offer...

Neymar v England
  • End of 1st Half

Aaaand that's the half. Very lacklustre.


TWO minutes of added time.


Once again, there is very little to say. A very poor half of football, one minute plus stoppage left.


Thumbs up from Gareth, at least someone's happy.

England manager Gareth Southgate

Decent spell of possession for England, but it comes to an end as Lingard fouls Casemiro. The Real Madrid man stays down after taking studs to the top of his foot. Ouch.


England have a free-kick 35 yards out or so. Rashford lofts in a delightful ball and Stones is there to glance it back across goal but the referee sees a problem with how he climbed on top of Miranda. Free-kick to Brazil.

  • Jesse Lingard

And that is Loftus-Cheek's evening over, with the Chelsea loanee hobbling off. On comes Jesse Lingard.


Excitement for England! Rashford has the ball in the Brazil area, but he has his back to goal and cannot twist or turn to work a shot away. Excitement over.


Loftus-Cheek just grimacing slightly and looks towards the subs bench. Reckon he'll be alright.


I wish I could say more about this game, but I can't. Come on someone, put the round thing near the goal.


While there's not much going on...


Stones v Neymar and it's the former who gets a very high boot on the ball to prevent the PSG man from stealing through on goal.


Neymar im Länderspiel England gegen Brasilien

71% possession for Brazil so far. Starting to worry about the prospect of a 0-0 now...

As I say that, Neymar curls a ball in behind the defence for Jesus, who rounds Hart but then runs it out... Regardless, the offside flag goes up.


Neymar tries to squirm his way through the England defence, but he ends up playing it out wide to Alves, whose cross is headed away by Stones.


WIDE! High, wide and not so handsome from Paulinho, who finds a yard of space 20 yards out but cannot direct his effort on goal.


SHOT! And there is England's first half opportunity... Rashford unleashes from 25 yards out but it bounces into the arms of Allison.


Twas an enjoyable start, but in truth there's little to report since. The chance for Jesus was merely a half one, while England are yet to create an opening yet.


SAVE! It looks like Alves is lining up to shoot once more from out wide, but the fizzed ball in finds the head of Jesus, but Hart dives to his left to save the attempt.


OVER! And then some. Neymar twists and turns then has an attempt on goal, but it's beyond Row Z, drawing ironic cheers from the home crowd.


Long ball over the top and Rashford's eyes light up as he looks to bear down on goal, but Miranda storms back to get his head to it and play it to Allison.


The boys.


Patient start from Brazil, who are just beginning to enjoy more of the ball. But Eric Dier breaks up play and England have a goal-kick.


Alves tries his luck from 30 yards out or so, but it curls away from goal and that's not going to trouble Hart.


Alves is back on his feet. Perhaps not the start he expected.

There's a huge roar as Brazil go forward for the first time, but Walker mops up for England. Great pace to the game so far.


Decent little start from England, while there is concern already for Dani Alves, who is down clutching his knee after a 50-50 with Vardy.

  • 1st Half

And away we go at Wembley. England should be in all white, but they're sporting some red socks, while Brazil are in their glorious yellow - blue shorts and white socks too, in case you were wondering.



Time for the national anthems... Sounds like a fair Brazilian contingent in the crowd tonight.





England's World Cup preparations will continue with March friendlies against Holland and Italy.

Gareth Southgate has four games lined up before next summer's tournament and the Football Association has arranged to play two of the most high-profile sides who failed to qualify for Russia.

The Three Lions will play at Amsterdam's Johan Cruyff Arena on March 23 before hosting the Azzurri at Wembley four days later.



So Marcus Rashford starts for England tonight, and the 20-year-old received quite the acclaim from head coach Gareth Southgate.

"It's amazing really that he's been a player who's been able to dip under the radar as we think so much of him, not only his ability, but his mentality and his maturity," Southgate told reports.

"He's a very exciting player, but grounded, wants to improve all the time. For me he's going to be a top player. He has all the attributes of the top players I've worked with, but he's still only 20.

"Quite often we look across at each other in training and raise our eyebrows at some of the things he does. He's a very exciting player."

Marcus Rashford battles for possession with Mesut Ozil.


England have picked up just one victory in their last 10 international matches against Brazil (D5 L4) - winning 2-1 at Wembley in February 2013 under Roy Hodgson.

Brazil have won only two of their previous 11 away trips to play England - winning 1-0 in May 1981 and 3-1 in June 1995.

England have scored more than twice in just one of their 25 matches against Brazil, in their first meeting back in May 1956, winning 4-2.




It's a star-studded front three for Brazil, and England's back line will have a job on their hands when tracking Gabriel Jesus, Philippe Coutinho and some PSG player called Neymar.

Elsewhere, Dani Alves and Marcelo are your full-backs, while Paulinho returns to London in central midfield alongside Casemiro.

Premier League quartet Danilo, Fernandinho, Willian and Roberto Firmino are all on the bench.

Philippe Coutinho, Neymar, Gabriel Jesus (Brazil)


Back in 2007, England hosted Brazil in their first match at the new Wembley.

John Terry had nodded in from David Beckham’s cross to put the Three Lions in front, but a late Ribas Diego header denied England victory.

The days of Beckham and Terry playing for England are long gone, but could we see one of the Young Lions make a name for themselves tonight?


So Joe Gomez makes his full England debut at centre-back alongside John Stones and Harry Maguire. It's Joe Hart's turn in goal, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek starts once more.

Marcus Rashford starts up front along with Jamie Vardy, with Tammy Abraham on the bench. And this time it's Kyle Walker and Ryan Bertrand as wing-backs, with Kieran Tripper and Danny Rose among the subs.



Starting XI: Allison, Alves, Marquinhos, Miranda, Marcelo, Casemiro, Paulinho, Renato Augusto, Coutinho, Jesus, Neymar

Subs: Cassio, Ederson, Danilo, Alex Sandro, Thiago Silva, Jemerson, Fernandinho, Giuliano, Diego, Willian, Douglas Costa, Diego Souza, Taison, Firmino



Starting XI: Hart, Walker, Maguire, Stones, Gomez, Bertrand, Livermore, Dier, Loftus-Cheek, Vardy, Rashford

It’s time for another friendly at Wembley! Four days after playing out a 0-0 draw with world champions Germany, England play host to Brazil.

It’s also the final evening of international fixtures (unless you’re from Australia, New Zealand, Peru or Honduras) so either way, there’s cause for celebration.
