He calls focus from his players in the camp that they can look forward to World Cup places.
Fabio has actually been instrumental to changing the Three Lions squad ever since he took charge.
Brazil on the other hand are a true world class squad and they will be the ones to be in contention for the World Cup finals in South Africa.

David Beckham is also not playing due to preoccupied commitments. So will be missing are Steven Gerrard, David James, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole, Theo Walcott and Emile Heskey. The fringe players will take this opportunity to prove their worth. Brazil start pre-match favorites.
