Should be a much better game than the England vs Ireland match Wednesday.

I'm going for 2-1 to Brazil.

Neymar x 2
Fatman x1

Official Brazil matchday programme analysis of England team: 'World champion in 1966 ... the team has not been much of a threat since then'
We were a threat at Italia '90. Penalty kicks away from the Final (further than Brazil got BTW).

I can't see any way, shape form or fashion that England are going to avoid defeat tonight. I know it's a friendly and that the current Brazil side can't hold a candle to some of the classic Brazil teams but still, they're playing a side managed by Roy Hodgson who have Glen Johnson in their back four. :facepalm

Brazil should win. Their team is far better on paper, but they haven't clicked yet under Scolari, so we'll have to wait and see.

Suggested Brazil XI :

Cesar​
Alves / Silva / Luiz / Marcelo​
Fernando / Paulinho​
Moura / Oscar / Neymar​
Fred​
If they get their shit together, they will score 3/4.​

Away to Brazil? I scarcely believe we will go 4-2-3-1 at all. Maybe for brief periods, but by and large it will be 4-5-1, with a boring and monotonous style.

Looking forward to it now. I think we've got no chance of winning, but a good footballing performance would be nice. Come on England!!!!

That Brazil team doesn't look particularly threatening. I think it will be a 1-1 draw. England aren't an easy team to beat, they've lost just once in the last year to a Ibrahimovic-inspired Sweden.

Dani Alves and Hulk are going to ruin Milner and Baines tonight.

Luiz and Silva will keep Rooney quiet.

They've got a very strong side out bar their central midfield, they should and probably will win this by a couple of goals.

Gustavo, and Paulinho are hardly bad players. Paulinho is a really good midfielder.

They're good but it's not as strong as it has been in past years.

They don't particularly need a world class midfield, they've got a decent defence and their attacking threat is brilliant.
