Five memorable England v Brazil matches

Five memorable England v Brazil matches

England and Brazil will be traveling to the World Cup next year trying to erase painful memories of the 2014 tournament.

England head coach, Gareth Southgate has said that the world's most expensive footballer, Neymar is the "one" player on the planet worth £200m.

However, this will be the Reds youngster's first-ever start for England's senior set-up.

ENGLAND followed up their goalless draw against Germany with another disciplined defensive display to keep Brazil at bay last night, with Gareth Southgate's youth policy again showing some promising signs.

"We faced difficulties, but that is good for us", Neymar said.

Recent reports suggested that Neymar could be unhappy in France, and although the Brazilian has rubbished those claims, Real are said to be chasing the player's signature.

Brazil's qualification campaign was nearly flawless with only one defeat in 18 matches but maybe they are suffering the effects of playing the same kinds of teams over and over.

85' - 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.

After the match against Brazil on Tuesday, England has friendlies lined up against Italy and the Netherlands in March.

Brazil survived the sending-off of Ronaldinho to book a semi-final spot en route to a fifth world title.

"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".

Gomez added: "It's a great experience to play at this level, especially against a team like Brazil with all the individuals they have". 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.

"I thought the defensive back line were phenomenal", the West Ham goalkeeper told ITV Sport. Southgate was also quick to praise his defence for its work in securing a fourth clean sheet in a row against high-class Wembley opponents.

Jake Livermore is expected to join the pair in a midfield three.
