Kaká battles it out

A second-half goal by Nilmar was the difference in a forgettable match between Brazil and England in Qatar on Saturday.

The Villarreal man struck in the first minute of the second period after heading in a lovely floated ball from ex Manchester City player, Elano.

Less than ten minutes later, Brazil were awarded a penalty when Ben Foster clattered into Nilmar. The keeper should have been sent off but stayed on to see Luís Fabiano sky his shot.

England were also lucky not to concede when Lúcio struck the post with Foster well beaten.

Brazil remained in control throughout the rest of the second period as an England side missing a number of regular first-teamers rarely threatened Júlio César.

Michel Bastos, Carlos Eduardo and ‘Hulk’ all made debuts but only Bastos would have given Dunga something to think about.

Brazil are next in action against Oman in Muscat on November 17th.

    Thought brazil looked alot better than I have previously seen them.
    Nilmar definitely gives the side lots of pace and trickery definitely a starter for the world cup on this form.
