England's team manager Roy Hodgson said on Saturday (June 1) that stopping Neymar Junior would not be enough to guarantee a victory come Sunday's (June 2) England-Brazil soccer friendly in Rio de Janeiro. The last time the two teams met in February, England beat Brazil 2-1 at Wembley. It was England's first victory over the Latin American powerhouse in 23 years, with national team and Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard, scoring the winning goal.
