Chelsea midfielder Ramires says Brazil must keep Wayne Rooney quiet if they're to beat England tomorrow night.

Ramires has vowed to make sure his Manchester United rival does not rain on the parade of new Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari.

He said: “Rooney is a key part of the England team and will be very difficult for us to stop. I expect a good duel with him.

“But England are dangerous from all areas because the Premier League is the best league in the world and has many stars. This is not just a friendly for us. Scolari wants to come back with a win, and we want to take our chance to win with a new coach.

“Wembley is a magical place to play and we all want to beat England there – but we know it won’t be easy.
