England's boss had to be fairly satisfied with a battling performance in the end from his team in the heat of the new Maracana Stadium in Rio.
A superb goal to make it 2-2, and that's how it ended in Rio.
FT - Brazil 2-2 England
That's your lot, folks. After a poor first half in which they hardly sniffed the ball, England did well to claw something from the game, not least two excellent goals, one from a rising star and one from an established name.
Ignore the slight deflection, feel the quality. England's lead didn't last very long, but Wayne Rooney won't forget this goal in a hurry.
SUBS - Brazil (Paulinho off, Caldeira Bernard on) / England (Walcott off, Rodwell on)
Both sides ring the changes.
GOAL - Paulinho
Brazil waste little time in hitting back, with Paulinho beating Joe Hart. Lovely strike. It's 2-2 now – quite a friendly this is turning out to be.
SUB - Brazil (Fred off, Damiao on)
Leandro Damiao replaces Brazil's goalscorer as the hosts chase the game.
