England hold Brazil in dire encounter

England head coach, Gareth Southgate has said that the world's most expensive footballer, Neymar is the "one" player on the planet worth £200m.

Pitched against the top two teams in the world rankings, Southgate was delighted with the resilient nature of his side's performances as they look to put down solid foundations ahead of next year's World Cup.

Real Madrid are reportedly willing to offer these two stars for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar, who joined the French club from FC Barcelona in August.

The 44-year old former left back, who helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup as well as Copa America titles in 1997 and 1999, also believed that the country has recovered from a humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat by Germany as the 2014 tournament's hosts.

"If there was to be one (worth £200m), you'd say it would be him", Southgate told reporters. England were later eliminated in a playoff by the Soviet Union, while Brazil went on to a first World Cup success, beating Sweden 5-2 in the final.

March friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy will allow Southgate to address those issues, but for now it's time to celebrate the mundanity that is holding Brazil to a 0-0 draw.

Denmark hit back with Cyrus Christie's own goal and Eriksen's superb strike in three first-half minutes, before the Tottenham playmaker completed an exquisite hat-trick after the break to send his side to Russia.

"Against Japan we tested ourselves against a more mobile and skilled team, against England we tested ourselves against a team of strong and tall players, very solid", said Tite, who was hired in June 2016.

JOE GOMEZ will start for England against Brazil as he replaces injured Gary Cahill for the Wembley clash.

Brazil's qualification campaign was nearly flawless with only one defeat in 18 matches but maybe they are suffering the effects of playing the same kinds of teams over and over. "I'm more proud of them tonight as I think we've played the best team in the world, with their best team out. I've just got to aim to keep playing and improve each day then hopefully opportunities will come". "I thought they were brilliant", Hart said.
