    91mins

    Three minutes to be added on.

    90mins

    Jack Wilshere is announced as the Man of the Match, not something we will be arguing with here.

    88mins

    England fans in good voice now as the band plays on.

    87mins

    England work the ball really well, but the move breaks down when Milner uselessly chips a poor shot into the gloves of Julio Cesar.

    86mins

    Milner will take himself from the left, it's worked short and Milner hit's the cross from the return ball into a defender. Awful.

    85mins

    Corner to England won by Milner.

    84mins

    Nice play from Brazil as Lucas Moura steps forward, square to Fred but he trips over the ball and can only hit his effort on the fall - never going on target.

    83mins

    Dani Alves is penalised for a foul on Milner.

    82mins

    We've definitely reached that stage of an international friendly when the players seem ready to go home.

    Awful pass from Neymar - finds Baines.

    80mins

    79mins

    The pace of the game has died somewhat.

    78mins

    David Luiz is replaced by Miranda

    77mins

    Smalling's header is poor and drops to Fred, but he can't get it down properly and his awkward shot is blocked on the edge of the box.

    76mins

    Lennon is on for the impressive Walcott.

    75mins

    Still well poised this game, Brazil very capable of getting something out of this game.

    74mins

    Rooney and Milner link up well but the Man City man's cut across the box finds no white shirt in support.

    73mins

    Neymar takes but no Brazil shirt is attacked that space in the box and it's an easy headed clearance.

    72mins

    Corner to Brazil.

    71mins

    Felipe Luis is on for Adriano. Someone else for Walcott to test.

    70mins

    Wonderful ball across the six-yard box from Baines. It's just too far in front of Walcott and it races through.

    69mins

    Neymar tries an overhead kick from the edge of the area, and it ends up where you might expect - Neasden.

    68mins

    Frank Lampard celebrates

    67mins

    Shot from Neymar, dribbling shot into Hart's grasp.

    66mins

    Awful chip into the box from Alves, easy for Hart.

    65mins

    Neymar does well this time and manages to lay the ball off for Jean on the edge of the box. It's a poor first touch which means he has to rush the shot - well wide.

    64mins

    Adriano just does not know what to do with Walcott at the moment.

    63mins

    Jean is on for Paulinho

    61mins

    Walcott roasts Adriano again, Dante cuts out the cross but it eventually runs to Rooney who lays off a perfect pass to Lampard to fire in off the inside of the post. Great goal.

    59mins

    Great play from Walcott who leaves Adriano on the deck, he pulls it back but can't find a white shirt. It runs for Rooney who lays it back for Gerrard - but his shot from inside the D is well off target.

    58mins

    The replays show Cahill's effort actually came off his shoulder. He really should have atoned for his error with a goal.

    57mins

    The corner comes in again from Gerrard on the left, this time Julio Cesar fists away.

    56mins

    Ooooh! Great corner from Gerrard on the left, Cahill loses Luiz and gets in the header - and Julio Cesar has to tip over.

    55mins

    Good run from Baines, and Arouca has to slide in and give away the corner.

    54mins

    A really promising forward burst from Wilshere but his control just lets him down, enabling a defender to come away with the ball.

    53mins

    Better from England, passing it around and keeping possession.

    52mins

    Wembley has been silenced by those couple of minutes, coming so soon after Gerrard's effort on goal too.

    51mins

    England now look rattled at the back, Fred looking very, very dangerous.

    50mins

    Poor play again from Cahill and Smalling and again Fred can shoot first time from the edge of the box - and this time his effort hits the top of the bar!

    49mins

    Awful error from Cahill who tries to bring the ball out from the back and over-runs it, the ball hits the shins of a Brazil player and falls for Fred who produces a superb finish to level.

    48mins

    Fred, Arouca and Lucas Moura are on at half-time for Luis Fabiano, Ramires and Ronaldinho

    47mins

    Good shot from Gerrard on the edge of the box, Julio Cesar makes a hash of it and only pushes it out as far as Wilshere who can twist it into the net and Brazil escape with a goal-kick.

    46mins

    Baines and Lampard come on for Cole and Cleverley.

    46mins

    We have a few changes at half-time. Details coming up now.

    46mins

    England start the second half.

    45mins

    And there goes the half-time whistle.

    45mins

    One minute to be added on.

    45mins

    Walcott has got the beating of Dante for sure.

    44mins

    Cleverley feeds in Walcott and Julio Cesar beats away his shot. Would have taken something to beat Julio Cesar from just inside the box on that angle.

    43mins

    The England band play out 'God Save The Queen'.

    42mins

    Wilshere strides forward but finds himself crowded out, it runs loose to Rooney 25 yards out but his powered drive is fired just wide.

    41mins

    England definitely look worried when Brazil work the ball into the final third, there's definitely something in this for the World Cup hosts. In fact there already should be from Neymar.

    40mins

    Paulinho hooks a ball over his shoulder and it looks like it could drop it, Johnson makes sure it doesn't by clearing inside the six yard box.

    38mins

    Oscar found space on the right and delivered an inch-perfect pass for Neymar at the back post three yards out to tap into an empty net ... and he somehow put it over the bar.

    37mins

    WHAT A MISS BY NEYMAR!

    36mins

    If England can get Walcott running at Brazil, or a pocket of space for Wilshere to exploit, there could be more goals in this.

    35mins

    Neymar tries to get on the end of a ball over the top down the left channel, but he cannot control and it runs out for a goal-kick.

    34mins

    Joe Hart produces an unbelievable save to deny Ronaldinho as he looked certain to tap home his saved penalty.

    33mins

    Danny Welbeck is having a shocker - just had the chance to run at the defence and lost possession.

    32mins

    Brazil being allowed to enjoy possession in their own half.

    31mins

    Cahill blocks a shot from Luis Fabiano on the edge of the box.

    30mins

    Theo is back.

    29mins

    He's been down twice for treatment in quick succession, but he looks like he want to carry on.

    29mins

    Walcott clattered into Julio Cesar when he had the initial chance for the goal. It looks like his night is going to end early.

    28mins

    England looking in control now, Wilshere dictating play.

    27mins

    Brilliant slide-rule pass from Wilshere to Walcott on goal. Julio Cesar comes out and makes himself big to block Walcott's shot, but the loose ball runs to Rooney on the edge of the box and he guides it into the unguarded net.

    26mins

    England growing in confidence.

    26mins

    25mins

    Dani Alves concedes the corner to England.

    24mins

    Ashley Cole, who has never scored for England, strides forward and fires over.

    23mins

    Welbeck had to hit that shot with his left, but forced the shot with his right and it was never going to go on target.

    22mins

    Slick play from Rooney and Gerrard to slip in Welbeck but he fires way wide. He has to do better there.

    21mins

    So England survive, they now need to show the same fight and desire in the other half of the pitch.

    20mins

    The loose ball then ran for Neymar who looked certain to score but he fired wide under Cleverley's challenge - though some would argue the tackle from the Man United man merited another penalty.

    19mins

    Good save by Hart low down to his left, poor penalty from Ronaldinho. But the quality save came from the follow up as Hart somehow blocked Ronaldinho's second effort right on the line.

    19mins

    SAVED!

    19mins

    Ronaldinho....

    18mins

    Handball given against Wilshere, blocking the cross of Ronaldinho. Harsh, but you can see why it was given.

    18mins

    PENALTY TO BRAZIL

    18mins

    Neymar has a quick change of boots over by the half-way line.

    17mins

    Gerrard tries to slip in Cleverley but Dante is always confident of it running behind for a goal-kick.

    16mins

    Walcott is robbed by Adriano but Wilshere does brilliantly to track across and make the tackle to help his Arsenal team-mate.

    14mins

    Good breaking move there from Brazil though, Adriano and Neymar both involved.

    12mins

    Oscar fires well over from the edge of the D.

    12mins

    No corner to England though, the ref spotted a push by Rooney when he jumped to win the header.

    11mins

    Ooooh! Corner floated in again by Gerrard, Rooney gets there eight yards out and Julio Cesar does excellently to tip the header over the bar.

    10mins

    Nice ball to the back post from Gerrard, Adriano can only help it on for another corner.

    9mins

    Quite an even opening ten minutes or so.

    8mins

    Ball into the box from the right, but the flag goes up for offside against Luis Fabiano.

    7mins

    Wonderful ball over the top from Oscar to Neymar and he looks to be through, but his control lets him down as the ball runs off his thigh and on to Hart.

    6mins

    Ronaldinho takes, Neymar can't collect at the near post and it's cleared by Johnson.

    6mins

    Cahill beats Neymar to the ball and this time it's a corner to the visitors

    A better corner this time into the middle of the area, but Brazil eventually clear through Dani Alves.

    Corner to England again, Gerrard on the right to try a second time.

    Gerrard takes the corner from the right, it goes over everyone.

    2mins

    Nice ball in from Cleverley and Luiz has to head it behind for a corner.

    2mins

    There's the usual empty seats in the expensive seats at kick-off. It's like the Emirates.

    It's Brazil to kick off.
