The match between England and Brazil is one of the top clashes that will be played during this international break. Being the perfect match to please the fans with attacking football and test newcomers to the national team, the meeting promises to be eventful and uncompromising, despite the status of the friendly match. The last match between the two ended with a 0-0 draw, but it will likely not be the case here.

England vs Brazil Preview 

England Preview

Gareth Southgate has a perfect opportunity to experiment with the squad in upcoming friendlies to determine who will deserve to receive a call-up for the Euros in the summer. Such young wonderkids as Anthony Gordon, Kobbie Mainoo and Ezri Konsa have already received the promotion and are expected to have their debut in the match with Brazil or the next week’s clash against Belgium. In addition to England stars as Jude Bellingham, Harry Kane and others, Southgate will have a pleasant headache of finding the optimal balance between his starry squad. However, Gareth is still being blamed for being overly conservative in its tactics - a narrative that has already been going on for years. At the same time, it is true to some extent, England’s matches against Malta (2-0) and a draw with North Macedonia (1-1) were, least to say, boring and unconvincing. 

Brazil Preview 

Brazil is generally playing well against England, with only one defeat in the last head to head matches. The Seleção are also to build their optimal starting eleven, and this match will certainly be without the key figure in the midfield - Carlos Casemiro. At the same time, it is well-expected that the first appearance of Brazilian attacking trio Vinicius Junior - Hendrick - Rodrygo will take place at Wembley. Brazilians cannot claim a decent form recently, being on the run of three consecutive defeats, which slightly worsened their run in the World Cup qualification, currently being 8 points behind Argentina. This friendly can be the perfect opportunity for the Seleção to recharge and get back on the winning track, especially given that Copa America is coming soon, with Brazil being among the main favourites.

Betting Tips for England vs Brazil

Both Teams to Score

Given that both teams have world class players in the attack, it will be hard to expect that there will be a minimum of moments in front of each other’s goal. With Copa America and Euro coming, the players have to show their best on and off the field, to show the coaches that they deserve to be in the call-up for the major tournaments. For this England vs Brazil prediction, Unibet gives 1.76.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Despite the pragmatism of Southgate, it is obvious that this match will see a lot of new faces in England’s squad, which goes the same for Brazil. Given the expected experiments, it is hard to expect that there will be a dry and boring match. Moreover, Dorival Junior is attempting to revive the Joga Bonito spirit which was always connected with risky play and a lot of moments. England vs Brazil odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.84.

Marcus Rashford to Score at Any Time

Besides Harry Kane, one of the main players responsible for goals and moments in the English squad is Marcus Rashford. He had a relatively hard season, struggling with realisation, and poor form in certain parts of the season. However, the Englishmen seems to be back on track, scoring in his last three consecutive matches. Being assisted by such figures as Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden, Rashford has all the chances to put his name on the scoresheet. Unibet gives 3.95 for this England vs. Brazil tip.
