FT

England

  • Michael Owen 23'
  • 90'

    But it's too late - the final whistle blows and England's dream is over. Ronaldinho's free-kick early in the second half has sealed a 2-1 Brazil victory

  • 90'

    Little real pressure from England in the closing stages of this half - they haven't carved out any clear chances. Last ball forward from Seaman...

  • 90'

    ...but they give it away. Campbell launches the ball forward and the whistle is blown for a foul by Ferdinand inside the Brazil area

  • 90'

    Late free-kick to Brazil, just inside the England half. Understandably, they'll take their time

  • 90'

    Brazil on the brink of a place in the last four... goal-kick to England... then Campbell hits it far too long. Almost the end of the road for Eriksson's side

  • 90'

    Mills... Ferdinand... Sheringham chips from the corner of the area and it's wide

  • 90'

    Campbell gets there in a tangle with Butt and Rivaldo - the ball's over the bar. Four minutes of stoppage time for England to save the day

  • 90'

    Heskey crosses and Kleberson clears... England rally again and have a late, late corner

  • 89'

    Then the offside flag is up - England can pump this one forward... seconds of normal time to go

  • 89'

    Kleberson eventually crosses, and Danny Mills is there again for England

  • 88'

    Scholes loses the ball and Brazil can break with Rivaldo... Cafu on the right and Scolari's side are happy to try and eat up time

  • 87'

    The booking was for Ferdinand - England coming forward again with Beckham and now Sheringham on the right

  • 86'

    Brazil on the ball again... Vassell challenges well, but the throw goes to the Brazilians

  • 85'

    Unclear... it could have been Ferdinand, who had something to say about the decision

  • 85'

    At the other end, Mills brings down Roberto Carlos and it looks like he's been booked...

  • 84'

    Beckham again... Campbell... Scholes gets onto a Sheringham flick and is sent tumbling. No foul, says the referee. Dyer comes forward, but Roberto Carlos gets there for Brazil

  • 83'

    Beckham chips towards Campbell, and Sheringham just fails to find Dyer with a sharp little ball into the area

  • 83'

    Campbell plays it towards Sheringham, who is unable to keep that one in

  • 82'

    Again Brazil clear, and it's not been particularly apparent that England have an extra man

  • 82'

    Another free-kick soon follows: Heskey's fouled and again there are plenty forward for England

  • 81'

    Beckham takes it, Brazil clear... but Scholes is there. His cross, again, is poor - Marcos can claim that with no problem at all

  • 81'

    Kleberson overhits his pass towards Cafu. Goal-kick for England, and then Vassell is fouled by Roque Junior midway inside the Brazil half

  • 80'

    Dyer adjudged - again harshly - to have been backing in and Brazil have a free-kick

  • 79'

    Another change: Tottenham's Teddy Sheringham is on for Ashley Cole. More firepower for the final ten minutes or so

  • 79'

    Darius Vassell comes on for goalscorer Owen: can his pace help forge a crucial chance?

  • 78'

    They're struggling to get the ball - Brazil passing and passing and passing as we head for the last ten minutes

  • 78'

    That England change looks in the offing now... Mills gives it away and Sven's men need some inspiration

  • 77'

    Edilson leads a counter-attack and Roberto Carlos takes over. Now Gilberto Silva... good possession from the ten men

  • 76'

    Scholes gets in as Kleberson plays the ball forward... play is switched to Ashley Cole and now Mills gets the ball to Beckham, who is crowded out

  • 75'

    Some of today's refereeing was made for the word 'erratic'. Or the word 'weird'. You choose one

  • 75'

    Time starting to tick away for England... Rivaldo goes down after another challenge, this time by Scholes. He's booked, and that's another strange decision

  • 74'

    He shoots, and it deflects over the top. Corner... but Sol Campbell is penalised for pushing

  • 73'

    England move forward well with the industrious Mills, who turns inside the area

  • 72'

    Beckham wins the ball well... Rivaldo is down after a challenge but soon gets back to his feet. Looked like he made the most of that

  • 72'

    Butt looks for Dyer - he plays a long ball down the left, but again that's over-long

  • 71'

    Scholes to cross from the right... it's a poor one, and floats away behind Marcos' goal

  • 70'

    Twenty minutes left for Sven's men to try and salvage their World Cup hopes

  • 69'

    Roque Junior clears, and England and Brazil both look set to make changes: Ronaldo is off for Brazil and Edilson is coming on. No England change yet...

  • 68'

    Cole plays it in to Dyer: he can't control and Kleberson comes away for Brazil

  • 68'

    The wall does its job, and then Brazil are caught offside as they try to move forward again

  • 67'

    From it, they win another as Rivaldo turns outside the area. It's about 25 yards out and Roberto Carlos will hit it

  • 66'

    Dyer is adjudged to have fouled Edmilson as he tries to turn: free-kick for Brazil

  • 66'

    Mills steps in again and over-runs the ball - a good spell of pressure, though, from England - they are more than capable of making their way back into this game

  • 65'

    Meanwhile, Mills crosses and it's cleared, as is Dyer's follow-up

  • 64'

    Rivaldo clears it, and looks to have hurt himself in making that clearance

  • 64'

    Dyer takes it on and wins a corner... Beckham to take it

  • 63'

    Kleberson and Cafu link for Brazil: the hard-working Heskey is back there to tidy up and Ashley Cole moves forward

  • 62'

    He loses the ball, but England soon have it back through Beckham: he goes into the area and tumbles under challenge from Gilberto Silva. No penalty, says the referee

  • 62'

    England fans trying to lift their side against the ten men of Brazil... Heskey responds and finds Mills

  • 61'

    Mills gallops forward again and crosses long - much too long, and that drifts out of play

  • 60'

    Rivaldo takes on Ferdinand and loses out: Cole looks for Dyer and Roque Junior tidies up

  • 60'

    Kleberson clears as Brazil - stunned by that sending-off - look to regroup

  • 59'

    Brazil down to ten men, and it's all happening at the start of this second half

  • 58'

    The referee confirms that - it looks very harsh, but Ronaldinho, who made the first Brazil goal and scored the second, is off

  • 57'

    ...and the referee seems to have shown a red card - the same referee who dismissed France's Thierry Henry against Uruguay

  • 56'

    Butt challenges Roberto Carlos well, but England lose the ball and Rivaldo is there: Ronaldinho lunges in on Mills...

  • 56'

    He hits it low, and it deflects off Rivaldo and goes harmlessly wide of the post. England make a change: Kieron Dyer on, Trevor Sinclair off

  • 55'

    Rivaldo is felled by Butt halfway inside the England half... Roberto Carlos looking at this one from 35 yards

  • 55'

    It comes out to Cole, who shoots - it's blocked and here come Brazil

  • 54'

    Plenty forward for England... Beckham sizing up the options

  • 54'

    It comes out to Ferdinand and then Scholes is brought down on the right by Roberto Carlos. Dangerous free-kick for England

  • 53'

    Scholes to Mills as England attack: Heskey crosses low and Lucio turns it behind for a corner...

  • 52'

    Roberto Carlos hits one - it's into the side netting

  • 52'

    Scholes looks for Owen, but Brazil deal with that and move forward through Gilberto Silva

  • 51'

    Mills charges down the right but is dispossessed and Brazil have a new confidence and fluency: flicks and tricks...

  • 51'

    Now what can England produce in response to a stunning blow so early in the second half?

  • 51'

    The area was crowded - everyone thought that was going to be a cross, but Ronaldinho's element of surprise has turned it around for Brazil

  • 50'

    Ronaldinho floats it in, and the ball flies over Seaman and goes into the top corner. Brazil lead 2-1!

  • 49'

    Ronaldinho chips towards Kleberson - Ferdinand is in the right place to clear. Scholes then fouls Kleberson: free-kick Brazil

  • 48'

    Seaman launches a long ball downfield, and Heskey is unable to bring it under control

  • 48'

    The Brazilians are on the ball, but Cafu is caught offside on the right

  • 47'

    It's lifted in towards Owen, but his header flies high over Marcos' crossbar

  • 47'

    Chance for Beckham to create some danger here...

  • 46'

    ...Ronaldinho is adjudged to have fouled Ashley Cole and England have the free-kick. From it, Heskey is bundled over on the corner of the area

  • 46'

    Brazil on the ball with Kleberson - he plays it long and that's through to Seaman, who throws it out...

  • 45'

    The teams are back out - and the good news for England is that keeper Seaman looks fine

  • 45'

    Terrible timing for England - the half-time whistle goes and that dramatic Rivaldo strike means it's all square at the break

  • 45'

    He produces the most assured of finishes, flicking the ball wide of Seaman and into the corner. It's 1-1!

  • 45'

    Ronaldinho makes a great run through the middle and slips the ball to Rivaldo inside the area...

  • 45'

    It goes towards Owen and keeper Marcos slides in to kick that one out of harm's way

  • 45'

    Kleberson lifts a cross in for Brazil and it's cleared. Cole breaks, Cafu fouls him... free-kick to England

  • 45'

    It's too deep, and Marcos holds on. Four minutes of added time will be played

  • 44'

    Coming up to half time and England move forward with Scholes, who plays a deep ball towards Owen...

  • 43'

    Seaman's back on his feet, his name being chanted by the England fans... he looks happier with life in general all of a sudden

  • 42'

    He will receive treatment on the pitch and is surrounded by concerned colleagues

  • 41'

    The England keeper landed heavily after that incident... he looks in a bit of pain

  • 40'

    He's crowded out, but here comes Roberto Carlos: Seaman gets there under pressure

  • 39'

    From Carrow Road to the Shizouka Stadium... here comes Rivaldo, and now Ronaldo runs towards the England area

  • 39'

    Former Norwich City player Danny Mills makes a great challenge to prevent him from getting a shot in

  • 39'

    Great stuff from England - measured build-up. Then, at the other end, Cafu shoots and it deflects towards Ronaldo...

  • 38'

    Cole and Sinclair lead the charge forward for England: Beckham finds Heskey inside the area, and his low cross is cut out by Marcos with Owen lurking

  • 37'

    It goes wrong and Lucio looks to break: Cole concedes a free-kick. Kleberson hits a long-distance shot after some neat passing and Campbell blocks it

  • 37'

    Mills cuts out Edmilson's ball forward, and Heskey wins breathing space by getting an England free-kick

  • 36'

    Heskey's had an excellent game so far - full of effort and running

  • 36'

    Kleberson looks for Cafu as Brazil again use the route down the right: the flag's up and then Heskey runs at Brazil...

  • 35'

    Another ball forward soon afterwards is little more effective, and at the moment Brazil are - dare I say it - being pretty comfortably contained

  • 35'

    Edmilson plays the ball forward: that's very un-Brazilian. It's wayward, towards nobody and out for a goal-kick

  • 34'

    Brazil build, and Beckham gets a foot in to deny them time once again

  • 33'

    Edmilson is challenged by Heskey: England are snapping in with the challenges and not giving Brazil a moment's peace

  • 32'

    Roberto Carlos tries an outlandish shot from an outlandish angle - it hits the side netting, but Seaman didn't look flustered

  • 32'

    Kleberson for Brazil - he looks for Cafu and that's a throw

  • 31'

    ...the ball loops over Marcos but lands on the top of the net rather than in it with the keeper struggling

  • 30'

    Nothing on this occasion - Scholes crosses to Beckham and then Mills finds Heskey, who loops in a header...

  • 30'

    Brazil move forward as the game hits the half hour mark - what can Big Phil Scolari's side find in response to Owen's goal?

  • 29'

    Scholes steps in brilliantly to rob Roberto Carlos, and England are playing well

  • 28'

    Ashley Cole is then fouled - Ronaldinho the guilty party - Beckham gathers the ball and shoots: it's over the top

  • 27'

    Ronaldo gets away from Cole and Seaman blocks it... England scramble it away and Gilberto Silva is adjudged to have fouled Beckham

  • 27'

    ...and that's just added to the good mood among the travelling supporters...

  • 26'

    In the meantime, Heskey flicks and Owen can't gather the ball this time. Becks is back...

  • 25'

    Worrying sign for England - Beckham has picked up a knock and will be helped off the pitch for treatment

  • 25'

    ...and Beckham completes the clearance. Huge noise from the England fans

  • 24'

    Lucio's mistake let Owen in... and it was a typically opportunistic and brilliant strike from the Liverpool man. Campbell blocks as Brazil hit back...

  • 23'

    Owen finds his way into the area and produces the coolest of finishes to dink the ball over Marcos - it's 1-0 England!

  • 23'

    He finds Kleberson and Scholes steps in... back come Brazil and Ronaldo engineers a chance to shoot from 30 yards. England block and break...

  • 22'

    Mills approaching half-way, then Ferdinand gives possession away. Roberto Carlos considers his options...

  • 21'

    Scholes takes it on and looks for Cole, who gets a deep cross in: Marcos is there to claim for Brazil

  • 21'

    Ronaldinho's on the left again: Sinclair is the man making the challenge this time

  • 20'

    Typical of Brazil's lightning transformation of defence into attack

  • 19'

    Beckham floats a long free-kick: it's cleared and Ronaldo combines with Rivaldo... the former fires in a low shot which Seaman clutches

  • 18'

    Heskey crosses, Kleberson brings it clear and Ronaldo races towards the area: Campbell covers superbly

  • 18'

    England can't make anything of that, though: Brazil press well and in the end Ferdinand is forced to play the ball all the way back to his keeper

  • 17'

    Rivaldo fouls Mills: from the free-kick, Heskey launches a run down the left and gets a throw

  • 16'

    Campbell fouls Rivaldo in the centre circle, and that brings another Brazil free-kick

  • 16'

    Which, in the end, is dealt with well by Mills. A good spell of pressure from Brazil

  • 15'

    Seaman is unable to reach it, and there are one or two neurotic moments as the ball flies across goal - a throw for Brazil

  • 15'

    Ferdinand meets that with a header clear, which goes for a second corner...

  • 14'

    He hammers in a vicious shot, which deflects off Heskey in the wall and goes behind for Brazil's first corner

  • 14'

    Scholes fouls Ronaldinho - free-kick about 35 yards out, and Roberto Carlos is looking at this...

  • 13'

    Brazil passing the ball around in defence... Gilberto Silva now, and Kleberson... Roberto Carlos looks for Ronaldo and Danny Mills is in the way

  • 12'

    Scholes gets the ball 30 yards out and attempts an early shot, which ricochets to safety

  • 12'

    And from his ball upfield, England win a free-kick inside the centre circle

  • 11'

    Roque Junior for Brazil - Ronaldo, lurking around near half way, looks for Rivaldo. That ball runs through to keeper Seaman

  • 11'

    England fans turning up the sound - they'll have enjoyed an evenly-matched first ten minutes

  • 10'

    Cafu makes another run down the right - Cole's response is again well-timed

  • 10'

    Heskey chases another ball forward, but Lucio gets there and then Beckham intercepts superbly as Roberto Carlos looks to get forward

  • 9'

    Sinclair looks to take on Cafu, but is unable to make any headway

  • 8'

    He has another shot - this time from the left of the area - and it's well blocked. England defending calmly in the face of some good Brazil passing

  • 8'

    Seaman takes a goal-kick long, and Heskey tries to flick on... Brazil win it and Ronaldinho finds Rivaldo...

  • 7'

    And now Roberto Carlos again - it's him against Danny Mills, and Mills gets the challenge in for England

  • 6'

    Roberto Carlos comes steamrollering forward and looks for Ronaldo - wide it goes to Cafu on the other side...

  • 6'

    The ball comes to Rivaldo, who hooks in a shot which goes well wide

  • 5'

    And here comes Cafu for Brazil... Ronaldinho takes on Ashley Cole and the defender sticks to his task well

  • 5'

    Scholes, Heskey and Sinclair link: Mills tries to continue the charge down the right but is unable to keep the ball in play

  • 4'

    Beckham bends the ball into the area: Heskey gets his head to it, but directs it straight at Marcos

  • 3'

    Then Nicky Butt - Pele's favourite - makes a fine interception in midfield, and England have started crisply. Owen is fouled by Roque Junior - free-kick...

  • 3'

    It's switched to Roque Junior and now Rivaldo... Mills gets there and hammers the ball upfield for England

  • 2'

    From it, the Brazilians win a free-kick halfway inside England's half...

  • 2'

    Ferdinand passes back to Seaman as Brazil try to move forward, but the kick forward results only in a Brazil throw

  • 1'

    Beckham takes the kick, and keeper Marcos punches it clear

  • 1'

    Immediately, Ashley Cole sets off down the left and Edmilson's challenge brings a corner after less than a minute

  •  

    England will get the game under way, and the ball goes back to Scholes...

  •  

    The two teams shake hands... on the bench, Sven Goran Eriksson's looking as calm as ever ahead of this most massive of games

  •  

    Now it's Brazil's turn... their fans getting into party mood (already) - their part of the stadium a sea of yellow shirts

  •  

    Two verses of God Save The Queen - one's enough, surely, we all know how it goes

  •  

    And the national anthems are being played... kick off five minutes away in this amazing mountainside stadium

  •  

    There's a thunderous reception as the teams emerge onto the pitch - England in white, Brazil in blue

  •  

    England retain their expected starting eleven: Seaman, Mills, Campbell, Ferdinand, Ashley Cole, Beckham, Scholes, Butt, Sinclair, Owen, Heskey.

  •  

    One change for the South Americans, with Kleberson replacing Juninho Paulista in midfield. Brazil: Marcos, Roque Junior, Lucio, Edmilson, Cafu, Gilberto, Ronaldinho, Kleberson, Carlos, Ronaldo, Rivaldo.
