Neymar trains under the watchful eye of Felipão

Brazil take on England on Sunday in a game that will re-open the estádio Maracanã. The South Americans have struggled under Luiz Felipe Scolari winning only once against a weak Bolivia team, drawing with Russia, Italy and Chile, and losing to England at Wembley. But Scolari will have all of his top players available for Sunday’s match and with Neymar, Oscar, Paulinho and Fred all expected to start, England may be in for a tough time in Rio.
Brazil and England have met three times in the Maracanã. In 1959, Brazil came out on top 2-0. Ten years later, the hosts won 2-1. England’s only victory came in 1984 when they managed a 2-0 win.
Brazil are next in action 9 June when they travel to Porto Alegre to face France in a friendly. They start their Confederations Cup campaign against Japan in Brasília 15th June, then play Mexico in Fortaleza four days later, followed by Italy in Salvador on 22nd.

    Gol Tv in america , I get Globo international and they use to have an alternative sound setting where I could hear you and Bira instead of the Portugues commentary.
