James Milner: "Every time you play Brazil, you are playing one of the best sides in the world. To get a win like that at Wembley gives you a lot of confidence.
"It was a good performance as well and we can take a lot of confidence from it, even though it was a friendly.
"We know that if, hopefully, we do qualify, and come up against those teams again, we are well-equipped. We know we can get a win against them.
"I think we are moving forward all the time and the performances are improving as well. That's a positive sign.
"The squad is changing all the time, there are younger players coming in, but we have still got the mix of the senior players as well.
"The squad is in a really good place at the moment. The longer we work with the manager, he is obviously going to get his ideas over as well and you will see improvements in the team.
"You can see that already since the Euros. We started from a strong base and maybe didn't quite retain the ball as well as we could have done and our forward play was not as good as it could be.
"But that's improving all the time."
