    Caught the end, Butland looks great, Brazil are amazingly talented.

    Brazil win 2-0. Team GB look like what they are: a group of players that have never played together and have been thrown together during pre-season. They'll get better but they've not got the games, can't see them doing 'owt.

    The longer they survive, the better they will get.

    Thought they played much better once Pearce got rid of his ridiculous starting xi

    The good news is i'm not sure they'll play another team as good as that. Spain have an excellent squad but I don't think it's as awe inspiring (or desperate, frankly) as what Brazil has got to offer: I think they have a special generation coming through .I was more interested to see Neymar, Oscar, Moura, Ganso etc than I was to see us.

    We'll have a solid defence and a great keeping prospect, I don't think we'll embarrass ourselves, though the Uruguay game could get ugly.

    that brazil generation coming through does appear to be the best bunch coming through en masse since i have been watching them. they havent been the unquestionably best footballing nation since 2002 ( in performances maybe not but it terms of talent there is no doubt), so , luckily for them , by 2014 they should be pushing for no1 again. but then again, argentina have been stacked with ridiculous talent for a few years now and they dont get any closer to winning anything.

    There's a difference between being ready for international competition and playing part of a friendly game. Kyle Walker also played by the way.

    Exactly. MRI scans were provided to BOA, hence why the only comment from them has been to tell Blatter to shut up. Just media looking for a story and a scapegoat for Team GB's failings.

    10 min in not a lot to say. GB look much better on the ball than the proper team. It feels like watching a pre-season friendly from the far-east.

    The Welsh lads are the best players on the pitch.

    Agreed. Sturridge and Cleverley are at least showing good movement.

    Cleverly has shown quality, Joe Allen has been excellent.

    Butland showing why young keepers are sh1t even when very talented.

    Butland with a howler but got away with it.

    All of Senegal's threat is coming down Bellamy's flank.

    GB far more talented than Senegal. Can see Senegal getting frustrated and injuring a player.

    Sturridge's lack of fitness is beginning to show. Ramsey on for Sturridge at HT?

    Give him to 60, never been his biggest fan so never expected much.

    This Giggs kid is good, he might have a half decent career.
