Brazil can expect England’s Wayne Rooney to ask them plenty of questions on the pitch when the countries meet in Wednesday’s friendly in London.
But the striker’s off field interrogation leaves something to be desired:
“So Leighton, Leon, cold afternoon travelling down to London to take on Brazil tomorrow, how are you feeling?”
Leon Osman: “(Laughs) I’m feeling good, mate. Nice to be on the train, nice relaxing setting, so I’m looking forward to it.”
“I enjoy the train. I have done since I used to watch Thomas (the Tank Engine) as a kid, so it’s always good to get on the train.”
Rooney: “And finally, Leighton, Ashley Cole up for 100 caps maybe tomorrow, a little bit of competition with you and him. Are you hoping to try and nail the left-back spot?”
Leighton Baines: “As you mention, Ash is on for his 100th cap now and well deserved. Hopefully he’ll get that tomorrow and I’ll just keep plugging away and do the best I can do for my club, and hopefully that brings chances for my country as well. Then I’ll be happy with that.”
Rooney will need to be a little more probing when he leads the line against Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side.
England have not beaten Brazil in 23 years.
