Brazil were held to a 2 all draw by the ever lively england in their own pitch

England 2-2 Brazil

England held their host to a two all draw. The home team were the first to attack for the first time and Neymar tries an acrobatic volley a few yards out from Joe Hart's goal but his effort is blocked by Michael Carrick. In the 11 mins Neymar curls the ball around the English wall but it lacks pace and Hart collects easily.

In the 18 minute Rooney and Walcott has a chance to break free but the passing is far too sloppy. At the other end, Neymar glides past Johnson but Hart comes out to thwart the forward. Best chance of the game. ohnson produces a wonderful pass to send Walcott clear in the Brazil area but the goal keeper (Júlio César
) makes himself big and saves. The first goal came through Fred, the Brazilian forward for a 1-0 lead in the 57th minute.

10 Minutes later England are level! Oxlade-Chamberlain beats Júlio César with a low right-footed shot with Rooney setting him. Rooney is on mark again in the 79th Minute for a 2-1 lead.

it Didnt take long for Brazil to equaloize through PAulinho in the 83rd Minute. Thats how it ended in a sell out crowd


Brazil, England, Maracana Stadium
