England Brave in Maracanã


Brazil 2-2 England

A team boasting players like Gerrard, Lampard, Cole, Rooney and Hart just simply weren’t going to lose last night in Rio de Janeiro. Hart was on form in a thrilling 2-2 draw.

The Brazilian fans last night screamed every time Neymar even went near to the ball. Joe Hart played outstandingly well in the first forty-five as Brazil were eager to get going well. The score was 0-0 at the break.

After Brazil hit the crossbar from long-range, Fred volleyed underneath Joe for the first goal of the game. History was made as well for England. The last team to beat Brazil at the Maracanã was the Three Lions. The game was a 2-0 victory for England in 1984. One player on the field that day was Mark Chamberlain. His son Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was playing last night and volleyed home sweetly for an equalizer. From outside the box, Wayne Rooney curled the ball over the goalkeeper and into the top corner for a possible winning goal. Highly rated midfielder Paulinho turned and volleyed home an equalizer just a few minutes later. England did not find a winner, and nor did the much fancied Samba Boys. The match ended Brazil 2-2 England.
