A friendly cannot get better than this I guess. The spoils were shared. The final score was 1-1 to Brazil’s liking. I am glad that Gilberto Silva made his presence felt in the team with superstars like Kaka and Ronaldinho. His goal was disallowed wrongly and he gave the assist for the goal in the dying minutes.
But this match will be remembered for Beckham’s comeback and crosses and freekicks as England looked like scoring only from them. Owen made a very silent comeback into the team aswell. There was one chance for him again from a Beckham cross but he could not convert.Rooney was missed by England and I thought for all the one touch football by Brazil they lacked the finishing. Robinho was playing a bit wide on the left and the substitutions later in the second half were not convincing too.
If this is the Brazil team going into Copa America I wonder how well they will play!
