Matchday: Brazil-England and USA-Germany

Shaun Botterill

Glen Johnson starts for Roy Hodgson's England as they face Brazil in the newly remodeled Maracana, while the US and Germany square off at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.

Slow going today, but there's two international friendlies set to kickoff over the next while, with England in the glamour friendly against Brazil in Rio, while Jurgen Klinsmann gets reacquainted with the German national team in the nation's capital. From a Liverpool perspective there's only one name to follow--Glen Johnson will start at fullback for Roy Hodgson, who's missing Daniel Sturridge after the young striker suffered an ankle injury in the first half of the 1-1 draw with Ireland.

Will it be exciting? Most definitely not. But it'll be something, and more often than not that's better than nothing. Unless of course it's Roy Hodgson, then nothing is as much as you could possibly ask for.
