Ox earns Hodgson plaudits
Roy Hodgson has praised the contribution of goal-scoring substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in England's 2-2 draw against Brazil.
Fred had opened the scoring just after half-time for the home side, before Arsenal's 19-year-old midfielder came off the bench to equalise with a volley. 

Wayne Rooney looked to have secured an unlikely victory with his deflected effort to make it 2-1, until Paulinho levelled for the hosts.

Brazil had been dominant in the first half, but England responded well in the second period and Hodgson credited Oxlade-Chamberlain with bringing energy and attacking intent in the middle of the pitch, sparking the comeback.

Federico Dionisi almost made it 2-0 after pouncing on a Riccardo Saponara error, before the visitors went close to an equaliser in the final minute.

Brazil 2-2 England
England recorded an unlikely draw against Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, as Roy Hodgson's side battled from a goal down to take the lead before Paulinho sent the iconic Maracana Stadium into raptures with a late leveller.

The Selecao had to wait until the second half to score despite dominating the early exchanges, with Fred tucking the ball into the net after Hernanes had hit the bar. But England responded through substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's stinging volley.

Wayne Rooney, somewhat against the run of play, then gave the Three Lions an unexpected lead with a driving run and long-range finish before Paulinho acrobatically volleyed an equaliser just minutes later.
