  2. 'They didn't deserve to lose'

    England 1-2 Brazil

    BBC One

    England manager Phil Neville speaking to BBC: "We got punished for two lapses of concentration when the game should have been dead and buried. Things probably aren't going for us that they were 12 months ago, that's football.

    "But what I would say is I can look my players in my eye and say they played a really good game of football today. They didn't deserve to lose that's for sure."

  5. 'You have to take chances'

    FT: England 1-2 Brazil

    BBC One

    Manchester City manager Nick Cushing on BBC: "You have spells in games and you have to make the most of them. You have to take your chances.

    "For the goals, the cross came in too easily and obviously the keeper will be disappointed on the first. We have to be more resolute."

  9. Post update

    England 1-2 Brazil

    Keira Walsh's bending cross is aimed at Rachel Daly but Brazilian keeper Barbara, who has played very well, comes charging out to catch it.

    One and a half of the three minutes of stoppage time to go.

    England 1-2 Brazil

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC One

    How did that not go in?!


    England 1-2 Brazil


    It's lifted in from the left and Beth England puts pressure on the keeper. She fumbles it initially but Lucy Staniforth barely has time to react.

    Her header doesn't have the legs to beat the keeper, who scrambles back and claws it off the line.

  13. Post update

    England 1-2 Brazil

    Brazil are running down the clock. No rush over these throw-ins. Beth Mead isn't giving up though - she wins the ball back on the left.

  14. Post update

    England 1-2 Brazil

    Jill Scott battles to win the ball in midfield and sets Lucy Staniforth on her way. The substitute tries to push it wide to Lucy Bronze but the pass is behind her.

    Beth England then charges down the right-back and blocks the clearance. Throw-in for Brazil in the corner.


    England 1-2 Brazil

    Another change for Brazil. Victoria replaces Luana and takes the captain's armband.

  16. Post update

    England 1-2 Brazil

    Rachel Daly is short of options on the right so cuts inside. She beats the first defender but not the second.

    England will have to get the ball back quickly. They have around four minutes to equalise.

  17. CLOSE!

    England 1-2 Brazil

    This was almost it!

    Beth Mead is the provider again but Beth England's glancing header lacks power and bounces into the keeper's arms.

    She just didn't quite get enough on it but what a difference England has made!

  18. Post update

    England 1-2 Brazil

    There's more energy in England's passing now. Lucy Bronze wins another corner down the right.

    Alex Greenwood swings it in and Beth England puts pressure on the keeper. It's punched clear.

  19. GOAL - England 1-2 Brazil

    Beth England

    Brilliant header from Beth England - who only came on a few minutes ago!

    It's a good cross from Steph Houghton on the right but England still has a lot to do. She gets her body around the ball and powerfully nods it into the near corner from deep in the box.

    Big goal. And a big moment for the Chelsea striker.
