A very decent display from the on-loan West Ham keeper, who denied Dani Alves with a fine save early in the second half and later produced a near-post save from Paulinho.

Eric Dier: 6

The Tottenham man had a difficult night, most of which was spent chasing the ball as Brazil moved it around. A mistake by Dier almost led to a goal when Fernandinho fired against the post, but the skipper did go close to scoring himself with a free-kick that went narrowly wide. For all Brazil’s possession, they created very few clear-cut chances, so overall Dier did his his job in terms of protecting the back four.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek: 5

After a hugely impressive England debut last week, Crystal Palace’s on-loan Chelsea youngster found the going much tougher this time before going off injured 11 minutes before half-time. Confident and decisive on the ball against Germany, Loftus-Cheek struggled to have anything like the same impact as Brazil passed and moved at will.

Tammy Abraham: 6

The young Chelsea forward was lively after coming on, although he struggled to get hold of the ball. Almost created a late goal with a header down to former Blues youngster Dominic Solanke, who was unable to connect.
