England vs Brazil Preview

England vs Brazil

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 14th November 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Gareth Southgate took a risk that many English managers would never take by fielding an inexperienced line up against Germany.

While it didn’t particularly pay off against the Germans, it was obviously well worth it in the end as some of the new comers took their chance to impress.

Having called up Dominic Solanke for this game, we expect England to field an inexperienced line up here again but can they repeat their Friday heroics?

The English men will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to six games in all competition if they can avoid defeat against Neymar and Co.

England have won just one of their last seven meetings with Brazil, losing three of those games.

Brazil unlike England has named a star-studded line up for this match with the likes of Coutinho, Neymar, Firmino, and Gabriel Jesus available.

Neymar scored his 53rd goal in 82 games for the Selecao when he opened the scoring from the penalty spot in their last game against Japan.

He has been in fine form for his club also with 11 goals in 12 games so far.

The Brazilians are in stunning form as they were the first team to qualify for the world cup in Russia and have won 13 of their last 16 games.

They have also scored in all just two of those matches and the English men have their work cut out when they take to the field against these attacking South Americans.
