Two biggest teams in World football meet in charm friendly match at Wembley. The last game between these sides finished with a 1-0 win of Brazil in 2009.
England have struggled slightly in qualification for the 2014 World Cup with two wins and two draws in their last four games so far. They are two points behind the leaders Montenegro in the group H. England’s last friendly-game against Sweden finished 4-2 thanks to four goals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. England have won only three, lost eleven and drawn nine of their twenty three matches against Brazil.
Brazil are the hosts of the WC 2014, so they do not need to qualify. They have played a number of friendly-matches over the past few months and have three wins, one draw and one defeat from Argentina. Also, they have games against England and Italy, which will give them a good preparation for facing the European teams next year. The Selecao have won only two of their last ten games at Wembley. But their last eighteen matches against England have seen fifteen victories and just two defeats.
England can’t count on forwards Jermain Defoe due to ankle injury and Daniel Sturridge cause of thigh problems. So, Theo Walcott or Danny Welbeck will replace theam alongside Wayne Rooney in attacking line. Michael Carrick has a hip injury, so Jack Wilshere could make his long-awaited return. Ashley Cole will make his 100th international appearance.
Real Madrid attacking mid Kaka has missed a lot, so he is cut for Brazil. But Luis Fabiano and Ronaldinho have been included by Luiz Felipe Scolari. QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar probably will start in goal. Chelsea defender David Luiz will miss out this game as he is suffering from a calf strain injury.
