Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari feels England "must be careful" after yesterday's 2-2 draw.

Scolari said he had shaken Roy Hodgson's hand and wished him good luck to return for the World Cup next year - but he also bemoaned his side's profligacy in front of goal.

Former Chelsea boss Scolari said: "I hope England come to the World Cup. When I spoke to Roy just now I said I hope to see you at the World Cup and that we will meet again. But we know in Europe that is difficult, much more difficult than qualifying in South America where we have four or five from 10 teams.

"England are an excellent team who are well-organised but will be facing some difficulties to be the first in their group.

"In a group where you have 10 games if you make a mistake in one or two games you might have a problem to qualify automatically and you might have to go to the play-offs. I had this problem with Portugal.

"England are very good but they have to be very careful."
