Joey Barton, Kaka and Ray Parlour all tweet their thoughts as England secure an historic 2-1 victory over Brazil at Wembley
Frank Lampard’s second-half goal helped England secure an historic 2-1 victory over Brazil at Wembley.
However, Lampard, who replaced Tom Cleverley after the interval, scored an instinctive first-time strike to seal victory for Roy Hodgson’s men.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction to England’s historic feat, in chronological order.
Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone (@TomHuddlestone6) is looking forward to a big game: “Good luck to England tonight, will be tough against this Brazil team!! Amazing achievement by Ashley Cole as well, full credit to him!”
Real Madrid playmaker Kaka (@KAKA) is also excited: “Classic of international soccer, England vs Brazil! Good luck Brazil!!#RumoaoHexa #Gaucho100”
Blackpool forward Thomas Ince (@RealThomasInce) is fresh from his Under-21 heroics and ready for the match: “England vs Brazil….. This is what it’s about #whatagame!”
England legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) heaps praise on Joe Hart for his penalty save: “Great save from Hart. Poor penalty after a rubbish decision!”
Hart’s team-mate John Guidetti (@superguidetti) reckons the England No1 is the best goalkeeper in the world: “Wow Joe Hart truly is the best in the world!”
Former Newcastle defender Warren Barton (@warrenbarton2) compares Hart to Gordon Banks: “Great save.. Just like Banks..!!”
Ex-Chelsea midfielder Jody Morris (@morriskid) enjoyed England’s goal: “Good run and top pass from Wilshere to Walcott.. calm finish from the Rooney.”
Arsenal legend Ray Parlour (@RealRomfordPele) likes the look of England’s new midfield partnership: “Wilshire and Gerrard look a great partnership in the middle of midfield!”
While former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) believes Tom Cleverley and Wilshere also look promising together: “If Gerrard/Lampard were always together purely on form/status but weren’t naturally matched – Cleverley/Wilshere just look natural.”
Marseille midfielder Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) is not impressed by Brazil’s star man: “This Neymar fella is massively overrated. Not in the same street as Messi or Ronaldo.”
Ex-Sunderland midfielder Michael Gray (@mickygray33) is critical of Gary Cahill in the lead up to Brazil’s goal: “That’s what happens when you give the ball away against the top international sides… They punish you #EnglandvBrazil!
Former Spain midfielder Gaizka Mendieta (@GaizkaMendieta6) is a good judge of what constitutes a special strike: “What a finish by Lampard that is!! Wonderful touch!! #EnglandvBrazil”
Ex-Wimbledon star Jason Euell (@jasoneuell) agrees with Mendieta: “That’s a finish from Lampard. Pure technique and composure..”
Ajax striker Ryan Babel (@RyanBabel) is impressed by Walcott’s performance: “Adriano having a hard time with Theo…”
Everton captain Phil Neville (@fizzer18) praises England’s achievement: “Very good performance, enjoyed watching England tonight, well done lads.”
Finally, former England cricketer Ian Botham (@BeefyBotham) is starting the hype ahead of next year’s tournament: “Well played England, great result tonight….. World Cup?????”◀ The Sport Review homepageNext story ►
