If Ashley Cole starts against Brazil he will win his 100th cap for England.

Well Carrick,Sturridge and Defoe have all had to pull out of Wednesdays friendly against Brazil

Roy Hodgson may well have to call up another striker or two with Southampton's Lambert in the frame.

Hi Jonas
How did the public welcome the news about Scolari returning as coach of Brazil?
Also is it really a good idea to bring back Ronaldinho as he was out for 1 year but has played well for Atletico M?

Any comments or predictions for Wednesday's match? - Will Brazil ruin England's party to celebrate our FA's 150 years birthday?

I can't wait to see them make fools out of that midfield of Lampard ,geriatric Gerarrd ,Carrick who i guess will be starting this game. Half time we should see the likes of Wilshere ,Walcott and Osman ,but by that time it will be too late. I love Ronaldinho for me the best player in the last 20 years and Messi's teacher without question.

Michael Carrick pulled out of the England squad with an injury the other day so won't play against Brazil.

I would like to see this England line up.

.................................Hart........................................

Johnson.........Cahill........................Jagielka..............Cole

.................................Wilshere.......................................

Milner................Gerrard...............................Chamberlain


...............................Walcott.........Rooney........................

No I haven't forgotten my medication!

I think we should see Walcott play in a central strikers role alongside Rooney.

Do you agree with me?

That's going to be a very interesting game. I'm looking forward to kick-off and a wave of freshness in Brazil's play. But, so far, I don't think I can count on it. Brazilian football have a huge corruption problems and probably there will be a couple of new players again (no one knows why they are taken for the national team games).

FT 2-1 to England.

I'm calling on FIFA to launch a match fixing investigation.

Adrian Chiles said Gerrard doesn't want to put too much pleasure on Jack Wilshere... :o

FT

England 2-1 Brazil
1-0 Rooney 26'
1-1 Fred 48’
2-1 Lampard 60’

England beat Brazil for this first time since 1990!

Any comments on todays result and how the 3 lions performed?

Did Jack Wilshere deserve to be named as man of the match?

I was really impressed with the way Roy Hodgson's team played tonight.

We were not afraid to attack the Brazilians and get forward and did not play our usual ultra defensive tactics.

The whole squad had a good run out and there are many positives we can take from this victory into the WC qualifiers.

Things could have been different if Ronaldinho hadn't missed that penalty or if Neymar had not fluffed that 1st half chance.

Their best players were Dani Alves and Oscar, they had no ideas after Fred calm down 5 minutes after coming on.

Are Brazil getting worse or are England getting better?

A pleasing result and an encouraging performance, for the most part.

Thought we looked far more composed and assured in possession than usual, and that was largely thanks to the impressive link-up play between the midfield trio of Gerrard, Cleverley and Wilshere. The latter, in particular, played very well and looked a menace when breaking forward with the ball while also keeping things ticking over with sharp, simple passing. Walcott gave Adriano a really tough time down that right-hand flank, and Rooney led the line well. And despite that panicky ten minute spell in which Fred managed to capitalise on an error, I thought the defending was also fairly strong - Cahill and Smalling recovered from their sticky patch sufficiently.

How poor were Brazil though?! Very disappointed. This certainly isn't a particularly strong crop by their sky-high standards.

I remember the good old days when Spain couldn't even beat France and Brazil were scoring goals for fun. Now they seem to lack that fluidity and creativity in the final 3rd.
