Full-time - England 2 Brazil 1
It's all over. England notch up their fourth ever win over Brazil. On the first-half showing especially, they deserved it.
For Brazil, the pressure is immediately turned up a notch for Phil Scolari.
Neymar finds space down the left, but can't find Fred. Brazil's last chance.
Oscar creates a chance for himself but drags the ball wide. One Brazilian player who doesn't deserve to be on the losing side.
Poor cross from Milner. To be fair, he's out of position on the left wing. That position is clearly the area where the England midfield could be improved.
Pretty scrappy now. Brazil not really looking like they'll equalise, though you can never rule them out.
Baines has looked just like he does for Everton so far tonight. His bad luck that Ashley Cole is England's greatest ever left-back.
Brazil pressing, but can't find their way through. The England defence have recovered from the mad opening five minutes of the second-half.
Constant second-half substitutions are not just the curse of people updating these sort of reports, but also the rhythm of the game.
Lennon stripping off now for England. The Spurs winger has been in good form of late.
Filipe now on for Adriano.
Baines gets down the left and puts an inch-perfect cross into the six-yard box. No one can connect for England.
England took the opportunity after Lampard's goal to bring on James Milner for Danny Welbeck.
Jean now on for Brazil in place of Paulinho. Fred and Jean sound like an elderly couple.
That was a world-class finish from Lampard. Superb stuff.
'59 - GOAL! England 2 Brazil 1
More great play by Walcott down the right. Ball comes to Rooney, who feeds Lampard and the Chelsea veteran places a shot that goes in off the post.
Low cross from Walcott pushed out by Cesar. No England played can get to the rebound and Gerrard eventually shoots over the bar.
From the resulting corner, Cahill heads powerfully at goal. Tipped over by Cesar, who then clears the second corner.
Leighton Baines makes a trademark run and forces a corner.
England need to slow things down and get their composure back.
Chaos in the England defence. Cahill and Smalling lose concentration. Fred is in again and hits the bar.
'47 GOAL! England 1 Brazil 1
Cahill loses the ball in a dangerous position, the ball comes to Fred and the substitute finished well.
We're off and running in the second-half. Baines on for Cole and Lampard replacing Cleverley for England.
Brazil take off Ramires, Ronaldinho and Fabiano. Arouca, Lucas and Fred on.
The selection of Ronaldinho will be questioned if his performance doesn't improve. Even putting aside the penalty miss, he's contributed little. Fabiano also looking off the pace.
England looking very fluid in midfield. Gerrard sitting deep and keeping his discipline. Cleverley tidy and Wilshere causing problems with his dribbling.
'45 - Half-time: England 1 Brazil 0
England go into the break 1-0 up through a Wayne Rooney goal and they've been good value for that lead. They've been the better side and have had chances to score more.
That said, Brazil have had their opportunities. Ronaldinho penalty saved by Hart and Neymar missed a sitter.
