A kick in the Brazil nuts
What is of concern is the way in which England conceded. Having gone a goal up, they lacked the killer instinct needed to finish the game. Instead, they meekly capitulated to a Brazilian team which was frankly lacklustre.
How will this affect their upcoming qualifier game against Estonia? Not much. England are certain to be victorious; the only question is by how many goals theyll win. The answer is: probably not enough. Unless they put five or six goals past this relatively weak opposition, they are likely to attract a great deal of criticism from fans and the media. Judging from past performances against teams like Macedonia, theyre likely to be in for a rough ride.
