England prepare to face Brazil

Published Add your comment

A depleted England squad began their short preparations for Wednesday's friendly with Brazil at St George's Park on Monday morning.

With Jermain Defoe (ankle) and Michael Carrick (hip) both ruled out and Daniel Sturridge expected to miss out with a thigh injury despite reporting for duty, only 11 outfield players trained normally as the remainder who were in action on Sunday did a warm-down session instead.

It also meant Jack Butland, a transfer deadline-day signing by Stoke who was loaned straight back to Birmingham, was the only goalkeeper involved as Manchester City's Joe Hart warmed down.
