Neymar insists that Brazil “tried everything” to try and break down England on Tuesday.

Brazil were held to a 0-0 draw against England at Wembley, with Joe Gomez particularly impressive.

The Liverpool defender helped shackle Neymar and his teammates, restricting them to just three shots on target, while England had two.

You should read our player ratings from the game, then Neymar’s thoughts on how the game actually went.

“We tried everything,” he said. “We had possession, we had chances to score, but we knew this was a squad used to defending more than other teams.

“But I’m satisfied with our game. We didn’t give chances to our opponents, we tried to create some. We made things difficult for them and that’s a good thing for us.

“It’s a good way of training, of working, of seeing what’s lacking so that we could win, score.

“But I’m happy with the year we’ve had, that we will end it in a good manner, and that’s all that matters.”
