Michael Owen's clipped shot from a Heskey ball gave England a dream lead after 23 minutes, but Rivaldo levelled for Brazil in first half stoppage time following an injury to David Seaman.
The momentum with with Brazil and they scored the decisive goal in a bizarre fashion five minutes into the second half. Ronaldinho took a free-kick from the right and, expecting a cross, Seaman lost the flight of the ball and it drifted over his head and into the net.
England battled and were handed a boost two minutes after the goal when scorer Ronaldinho was dismissed for either a stamp or a flailing arm in the direction of Danny Mills.
Even against ten men, England failed to really press Brazil back and create any real chances. Teddy Sheringham was introduced on 79 minutes, but was unable, in such a short time, to alter the course of the match.
