England's handling of selfish Neymar a blueprint for slowing down Brazil

Neymar hails Brazil's ability to create chances against England, noting the Three Lions' propensity to defend.
Gareth Southgate says England earned a respectable result against a Brazil side he considers the best in the world.

While the first meeting between Coach Tite's Brazil squad and a European opponent was a low-key game, it was, nevertheless, a valuable experience -- for both sides.

This was not the kind of test that Germany, Brazil's opponent in March, will provide. England did not look to dominate possession. England's manager Gareth Southgate confessed that his players were so wary of Brazil's attack that their first thought was to defend.

Inexperienced England stifle, earn admirable draw vs. full-strength Brazil

Gareth Southgate says England earned a respectable result against a Brazil side he considers the best in the world.
Neymar hails Brazil's ability to create chances against England, noting the Three Lions' propensity to defend.
Gabriel Jesus explains why he thinks Brazil's scoreless draw against England was reflective of their entire year.

LONDON -- Here are three points from Wembley as England and Brazil played out a 0-0 draw in an international friendly.

1. Goalless draw uneventful but not pointless

Two friendlies, 180 minutes, 20 players used and no goals. Those bare facts might lead you to conclude that England's two games over this last week have been a waste of time. That would be the negative spin, but the positive is that Gareth Southgate's severely depleted side have not lost to two of the favourites for next summer's...

Neymar nutmegs Brazil teammate Gabriel Jesus on Wembley sideline

As well a trophy-laden career and a claim to being the most expensive footballer in the entire history of the sport, Neymar can now also boast that he's successfully managed to nutmeg Jesus.

Gabriel Jesus, that is.

Tudo que vai ..... volta! ✌🏽😜 @dejesusoficial

A post shared by Nj 🇧🇷 👻 neymarjr (@neymarjr) on

Oblivious to the ruse, the Manchester City striker found himself on the wrong end of a stealthy nutmeg from his international teammate while Brazil warmed up at Wembley ahead of their friendly against England on Tuesday evening.

What a lark.

Paulinho's new lease of life after silencing Barcelona doubters

Brazil coach Tite stresses performances, not results, will be the priority during the Selecao's preparation for the World Cup.
Gabriel Jesus says Neymar has been positive, as always, with Brazil despite reports of a rift at PSG.
Brazil midfielder Willian says his side must continue to improve if they want to achieve their goal of winning the World Cup in Russia next year.
Defender John Stones says facing Germany and Brazil at Wembley will bring out the best in England.

Wembley could have been Paulinho's home this season if things had worked out differently for him at Tottenham. Instead, on Tuesday, he's a visitor to England's national stadium -- Spurs' temporary home -- as an integral part of a Brazil side which finally appears to have recovered from the depression which followed a 7-1 humiliation to Germany in the World Cup semifinals over three years ago.

Paulinho, like Brazil, suffered after that seven-goal embarrassment in Belo Horizonte. For around 18 months,...

Italy have only themselves to blame vs. Sweden; Neymar's tears for real

Gab Marcotti examines Italy's pivotal second-leg playoff match against Sweden, breaking down what Ventura needs to change.

The last -- and only -- time Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup was back in 1958. Italy went into their final match against Northern Ireland needing a draw. They lost, 2-1. And, note, UEFA had nine slots back then; today, they have 12.

That ought to put some context to the precipice on which Gian Piero Ventura's crew are standing. And soon we'll know if they've nose-dived off it. If they do, Ventura will be the uber-scapegoat, and rightly so. Everything about the 1-0 defeat in the away leg...

Neymar returns to London, where the Brazilian got his first taste of Europe

Craig Burley and the FC crew explain why Neymar's tears after being defended by Brazil coach Tite were just for show.

Neymar comes to Wembley on Tuesday at the peak of his powers. He is the outstanding attacking talent of a successful, attractive team, building up to what promises to be the World Cup in which he makes the definitive statement of his worth as a player.

He is a global star, and pays the price for such status. The French press is full of whispers about a breakdown in relations at Paris Saint-Germain between him and coach Unai Emery, or tension between him and his teammate, Uruguayan striker Edinson...
