England v Brazil - latest from Wembley

Minute-by-minute text commentary of England's friendly match against Brazil

  • 83 min: Baines gets over the half-way line and plays it to Milner who wins England a foul. Johnson then puts it out for a goal kick though. Time for composure.

  • 84 min: Fred gets his feet in a bit of a muddle just inside the England box but is still able to get a shot away. It's wide though.
    2/6/2013 9:15:40 PM
  • 86 min: Just five minutes to go here. England are looking good for a win here - that'll be Brazil and Spain beaten here at Wembley in just a matter of months if they can hold on.

  • 88 min: Dante makes a mistake which Wilshere capitalises on brilliantly. It ends up with Milner on the left of the box - and looking a little but confused on what to do with - crosses it straight to Cesar.
    2/6/2013 9:19:41 PM
  • 90 min: Gerrard then Johnson getting stuck in to intercept passes - England really look like they want this. Brazil don't look quite so bothered. Wilshere has been named man of the match. I would have given it to Walcott.

  • 90 + 1 min: Three minutes of added time are indicated as Oscar shoots just wide from the edge of the box.
    2/6/2013 9:22:44 PM
  • 90 + 2 min: Brazil look like the team ahead - knocking it around at the back. Do they know they're losing?
    2/6/2013 9:23:41 PM
  • 90 + 3 min: That could be it. A little flick through is picked up by Hart.

  • FT: ENGLAND BEAT BRAZIL! The full-time whistle has gone.
    2/6/2013 9:25:35 PM
  • FT: What a great win for England and what a great game. It's Coming Home goes onto the loud speakers and it feels right. After that performance England fans will dare to believe.
    2/6/2013 9:27:13 PM
  • FT: Great performances all round from the England team - but you'd have to pick out Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott as the star performers. The Arsenal duo were great in possession, posing a threat all the time and asking questions of Brazil.

  • FT: The visitors, ranked a ridiculous 18th in the world by Fifa, were not brilliant. They showed some great glimpses of skill but don't look the finished product just yet. They'll improve before they host the World Cup next year though. You can be sure of that.

  • FT: Well that's it from me, Simon Rice. You can follow me on Twitter if you like by clicking here.
