Nilmar scored the lone goal of the match as Brazil defeated England 1-0 in an international football friendly here at the Khalifa Stadium yesterday. A packed stadium with 50,000 football fans thoroughly enjoyed the proceedings with five-time world champions Brazil proving the better side. England, hit by injuries to their regular players, could not match Brazil’s skills. The South Americans dominated the game with a lot of chances coming their way. However, they had only one goal to show in 90 minutes. Brazil missed a penalty kick in the second half after Nilmar had headed them ahead in the 47th minute. Wayne Rooney captained England for the first time in his international career as John Terry was ruled out of the match with an injury.
