Ronaldinho had a chance to open the scoring in his unofficial 100th appearance for the Selecao but was denied from the penalty spot by Joe Hart. Eight minutes later, Wayne Rooney showed the 32-year-old how to finish, stroking a loose ball into the back of the net after a good save by Julio Cesar.

Substitute Fred equalised swiftly after half-time before one of Roy Hodgson’s own introductions, Frank Lampard, smashed the Three Lions back into the lead.
