Preview: England v Brazil on Wednesday, February 6th

England will face Brazil in an international friendly on Wednesday, February 6th at Wembley.

The international friendly against Brazil will be a special game for Ashley Cole who will earn his 100th international cap. Cole is only the 7th England player to 100 caps. Stuart Pearce said: “In my mind, he’s the best left-back that’s ever played for England. That’s a fact, in my eyes.”

England national manager Roy Hodgson will miss Jermain Defoe and Daniel Sturridge because of ankle and thigh injuries as well as midfielder Michael Carrick. However, he is positive and said: “We think it’s a great way to start 2013 and our 150th anniversary, and we’ll be doing our best to play well and get a good result, but finally for me it’s a question of knowing by March what our best team is and what players play best together.”

The game against Brazil will be a warm-up for England’s two World Cup qualifiers in March against San Marino and Montenegro. However, England will face a strong Brazil side with Ronaldinho, Neymar and 4 Premier League players in their squad.

Brazil Line-up:

Julio Cesar (QPR), Diego Alves (Valencia); Dani Alves, Adriano ( Barcelona), David Luiz (Chelsea), Dante (Bayern Munich), Leandro Castan (Roma), Miranda, Filipe Luis ( Atletico Madrid); Ramires (Chelsea), Arouca (Santos), Paulinho (Corinthians), Hernanes (Lazio), Oscar (Chelsea), Ronaldinho (Atletico Mineiro), Lucas Moura (Paris St Germain); Hulk (Zenit St Petersburg), Neymar (Santos), Fred (Fluminense), Luis Fabiano (Sao Paulo).
