    • Ukraine
    • 90+2' FULL-TIME: And he blows for the end of this game as the Brazilians stroke the ball around. They've comfortably been the better side on an enjoyable night in Derby. Hope you enjoyed the game - and remember, there'll be plenty more international football tomorrow night, including England v Montenegro and Scotland v Spain. Join us then.
    • 90+2' A final check on the watch from Martin Atkinson...
    • 90+1' Terrible corner and Brazil break - Nilmar has a shot from just outside the box which Dykan tips around for a corner!
    • 90' Rotan's low cross from deep is flicked on by a Brazil player for a corner.
    • 89' Time running out - two minutes of stoppage time will be played.
    • 88' A sharp move forward gives Wesley a chance to shoot - it's low and central, and no trouble for Dykan.
    • 87' Sandro wins himself a free kick as he tries to burst into Ukraine's half. It's played backwards.
    • 86' Wesley is Brazil's final change of the evening - Elias, who has been quite quiet on his second appearance for Brazil, is the man to make way.
    • 85' The game is easing gently to its conclusion with Barcelona on the ball.
    • 84' Excellent flowing break from Brazil culminates in a Dani Alves cross which Timoschuk has to head away for a corner.
    • 83' The cross finally comes in - and it's quickly cleared for a throw.
    • 82' Andre - who plays for Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine - replaces Robinho.
    • 81' Seleznyov gets himself stuck by the right hand corner, but somehow contrives to win a corner for his side.
    • 80' Gay storms down the left to get on to Aliev's pass - he wins a throw on the byline.
    • 79' Sandro wins the ball back for Brazil but Seleznyov is down after it for Ukraine - play stops so he can be treated.
    • 78' Alves tries a delicate free kick - he is within a foot of the top right corner, but unfortunately for him a foot too high and wide. Goal kick.
    • 77' Another Brazil change - Pato off, Nilmar on. Pato has been very good tonight.
    • 77' Timoschuk falls into the back of Giuliano and Brazil have a free kick right on the edge of the penalty area.
    • 76' Good challenge from Lucas to cut out Seleznyov's run - Brazil back on the move again.
    • 75' Brazil are playing with effortless confidence - it's almost hypnotic, though they've only occasionally been genuinely dangerous in the final third.
    • 74' The game is fizzling out but Robinho tries to breathe some life into it with a run through the middle. Under pressure from Pato Timoschuk clears.
    • 72' Ukraine sub: Gay on for Poleyoviy.
    • 72' Aliev has another chance from distance - he does well with it once again from 35 yards, but his low curler hits the side netting.
    • 71' Looks like Ramires came off because of injury - he is pictured on the touchline with his ankle wrapped up - could make him a doubt for the weekend.
    • 70' First look at Sandro - it's a long ball the direction of Robinho, but it doesn't find its target.
    • 69' The ball breaks against the run of play to Seleznyov whose long-range snap-shot is blocked.
    • 68' Kucher gives away a free kick against new arrival Giuliano. Ukraine win it back almost immediately though.
    • 67' Brazil pouring forward - have Ukraine got anything left to get themselves back into this encounter?
    • 66' Thiago Silva runs out of his own half to halfway - Ukraine respond with a long ball forward which Adriano shields out for a goal kick.
    • 65' Double change - Sandro of Tottenham replaces Ramires and Carlos Eduardo's game is over too - Giuliano is on.
    • 64' PATO SCORES! 2-0! Good ball from Carlos Eduardo but it's behind Pato - no matter - he turns, skips around Mandzyuk and buries a finish past Dykan.
    • 63' Lucas, who's looked infinitely better than Ramires in central midfield tonight, gets Brazil on the move.
    • 62' Substitution: Milevskiy off, Seleznyov on.
    • 61' Milevskiy pulls off the last man for a header... no, he's offside. It's a tough evening for him, and he's about to be subbed.
    • 60' Well, it's Ukraine who have hit the post and have gone closest, but the Brazilians look at ease as we enter the last half an hour.
    • 59' A rare forary forward from the Ukrainians is brought to an end by Alves and Brazil in no time at all are on the edge of their opponents' penalty area.
    • 58' All Brazil - almost ludicrously dominant couple of minutes - Robinho flashes a good ball across the goal but Pato did not make the right run on this occasion.
    • 57' Some possession for Ukraine though they're going steadily backwards under a swell of pressure from the Brazilians.
    • 56' It says something for Lucas and Robinho that despite the serious overhaul the Brazil team have had since the World Cup that Menezes still sees fit to keep the pair in his plans.
    • 55' Robinho stays down after a Brazil move. Play not stopping for him after his clash with Khudobyak, but he is back to his feet now.
    • 54' Carlos Eduardo is fed the ball by Robinho from the corner and his swerving effort goes wide of the left hand stick.
    • 53' Great ball forward from Lucas and Alves wins a corner from it.
    • 52' Now Alves wants a penalty after Poloviy pulls at him as he runs into the area, but he'll have to settle for a corner instead. Not a very compelling claim for a spot kick though.
    • 51' Kucher gets a booking for pulling back Dani Alves on the run.
    • 50' ROTAN HITS THE POST! Fedetskiy makes an unchallenged run down the right - his ball in finds Aliev who opts not to shoot - chance looks to have gone but Rotan's shot comes very close!
    • 49' The ball bobbles around a bit aimlessly in the Brazil half, eventually going out for a Ukraine throw on the left hand side.
    • 48' Some good defensive work from Dani Alves to shepherd the ball back to Thiago Silva after the goal kick under pressure - nice to be able to talk about his defensive capabalities as well as his talent going forward.
    • 47' We've picked up where we left off - the ball being stroked around with ease by the Brazilians. The final ball from Pato this time is just out of Robinho's reach.
    • 46' The second half begins!
    • - Right - two subs to report - Gusev off for Khudobyak, and Andre Santos is off for Adriano.
    • 45+1' HALF-TIME: Brazil lead! They've been dominant, but they didn't get their second goal and they've ridden out a couple of lucky moments when Aliev's goal was disallowed and Ramires avoided a red card. Join us in a few minutes for the second half.
    • 45+1' Milevskiy brings down Andre Santon the wing in what is the last signficant action of the half.
    • 45' One minute of stoppage time to play.
    • 44' Referee Martin Atkinson has had a couple of big decisions to make in this first half about the Ramires decision and and the Aliev goal - both were very debatable decisions.
    • 43' DISALLOWED! A better move from the Ukrainians as Gusev cuts into the box - it comes to Aliev who sweeps the ball into the net - but NO! A free kick given against Ukraine for Milevskiy's challenge off the ball and the goal doesn't stand!
    • 42' Kucher robbed of the ball and Brazil try to surge down the left - Robinho glances the ball just out of play.
    • 41' Carlos Eduardo seems to think he has run out of options and opts to try a shot from range - well over the bar.
    • 39' Back to the football, and Brazil are back dominating the possession once again. Ramires strokes the ball to Carlos Eduardo and just as Robinho looks to burst through the middle the ball is whipped off his feet.
    • 38' Ramires is very lucky - he stepped on Fedetskiy after their byline tussle. Fedetskiy is booked for the lunge, but Ramires was already on a yellow and might easily have seen red for his reaction to the challenge.
    • 37' Good ball but Milevskiy cannot get a firmer header on it - it drifts out to the right where Ramires reacts poorly to a challenge on Fedetskiy...
    • 36' Ukraine have a set piece on the right which Aliev can tease in.
    • 35' PATO HITS THE POST! CARLOS EDUARDO FLUFFS REBOUND! Tymoschuk's backpass is underhit, Pato does superbly to intercept and then skip around Mandziuk, but he hits the post with his close range shot. It bounces back into Carlos Eduardo's path but he pops the ball over. Great chance - great play from Pato!
    • 34' Pato attempts the overhead kick after another fluid move - but a free kick is awarded against him for a high boot.
    • 33' Lucas's pass runs out of play - Fedetskiy has a throw to help his side get out of their own half, and Aliev wins a free kick soon after in the centre circle.
    • 32' Better-judged challenge from Tymoschuk ends Robinho's run, but though Ukraine are blocking Brazilian moves they are creating little of their own.
    • 31' Carlos Eduardo wriggles free and plays a ball to Pato - it bounces back towards Carlos Eduardo but his shot is blocked.
    • 30' Long ball forward from the back goes out on the full and Brazil have a throw just inside the Ukraine half.
    • 29' Some brave (brave?) souls are dancing in a conga line shirtless. In Derby. In October. There's a good atmosphere in the ground, with around 15,000 in attendance.
    • 28' Robinho cuts inside from the left and tries a shot on his right foot just inside the penalty box but it's blocked well by Fedetskiy.
    • 27' Ukraine need to change their defensive game plan a little here - but they don't look like a side with an expansive plan B.
    • 26' Robinho loses the ball and Ukraine try to get going, but Lucas wins it back in no time at all.
    • 25' That's Dani Alves' fifth goal for Brazil, and it's no less than what the Brazilians deserve - they've been the better side in the first quarter of the game.
    • 24' PUNISHED! DANI ALVES SCORES! It's a great counter, quick and direct - Robinho's cross from the left is met by Alves on the volley, and it takes a little deflection off Romanchuk to slip in at the far post!
    • 24' Fedetskiy drifts down the right looking for a way forward but he surrenders possession just after the halfway line.
    • 23' CLOSE FROM LUIZ! A good corner in, an excellent header down from Thiago Silva and David Luiz lashes a half-volleyed effort over the bar from close range - best chance of the game thus far.
    • 22' Dani Alves' cross is mishit and it bounces into Elias' path. Doesn't look like he was expecting it and it runs away for a corner - not that he knew much about it.
    • 21' Lucas dropping very deep to get the Brazilians moving once more. Some good passes being strung together.
    • 20' Yellow for Ramires - it's a very poor tackle and the Brazilian has not looked at his best so far.
    • 19' Great-looking ball from Carlos Eduardo in Elias' direction, but there was just a little too much on it and Dykan gets there first.
    • 18' Ukraine just enjoying a little more time on the ball now. Aliev looking to be the creative spark, but still having trouble picking out the right passes forward.
    • 17' Poor control from Ramires hands the ball to Aliev - it's a good quick ball forward to Milevskiy too and it's left to Thiago Silva of AC Milan to snuff out the danger.
    • 16' A good run from Gusev down the right wing but an equally good chase from Lucas, who tackles him fairly just before the Ukrainian can get into the penalty area.
    • 15' Tymoschuk looks off the pace here - that's the second time he clatters into a Brazilian player on the move - Andre Santos on this occasion.
    • 14' Hideous corner - out before it reaches the near post. A warning of sorts sounded by Ukraine from set pieces though.
    • 14' Another corner, this time given away by Andre Santos - Poleyovi to take this one.
    • 13' GOOD SAVE FROM VICTOR! ALIEV CLOSE! He tests Victor with a dipping free kick which the goalkeeper has to turn around the post for a corner.
    • 13' Lucas clatters into Milevskiy and Ukraine have a set piece from thirty yards out - their first chance to create something.
    • 12' Effortless passing from David Luiz to Carlos Eduardo as Brazil look to go forward once more.
    • 11' Robinho is dropping deep down the left, and it's causing mayhem when Pato joins him down that side. An early low centre from Pato could rip Ukraine apart, but nobody is able to apply the finishing touch.
    • 9' FIRST CHANCE FOR DANI ALVES! A great move, started by a superb disguised pass to Dani Alves, and the right-back's attempted chip goes over the bar. Lovely move, and Brazil are cutting up Ukraine in these opening exchanges.
    • 9' Great pass from Robinho wide to Dani Alves and it's a decent cross too which takes a wicked deflection and only just goes beyond Pato's path.
    • 8' Robinho breaks out the samba skills with an extended series of stepovers - looks great until Mandziuk steps up and dispossesses him.
    • 7' Pato does a great harrying job to pressure Romanchuk and he gets his reward when Rotan cannot keep his pass forward under control and Brazil break.
    • 6' Dani Alves has a shot at the far corner! It's about a yard too high and Dykan doesn't have to move.
    • 5' A first look at Carlos Eduardo, playing in the hole - he swaps passes with Robinho before being clumsily brought to the ground by Tymoschuk. Great chance from the free kick here.
    • 4' Great set piece from Andre Santos - Pato's header is flicked across the goal and the chance passes.
    • 3' A powerful burst from Pato down the left wins a free kick which Andre Santos stands over.
    • 3' Ramires wins a free kick after being held back by Rotan - the Brazilian has a chance to put on a good show in England tonight after a slow start at Chelsea.
    • 2' Frist touch from Rotan is a nice lay off to Romanchuk, but his pass upfield surrenders possession at once.
    • 1' Dani Alves tries a shot from distance after a few good passes - but that's harmless and saved by Dykan.
    • 1' Robinho wins a throw on the left flank. The Brazilians are here fresh from their game against Iran in Abu Dhabi, beginning brightly.
    • 1' Brazil in their famed yellow, Ukraine change to their away blue kit. The Brazilians kick off and we begin!
    • 19:30 Ukraine have an unbeaten record under Yurij Kalitvintsev, Brazil have won both games under Mano Menezes - will we see a first defeat inflicted on one of these coaches tonight? We're just moments from finding out.
    • 19:25 Certainly plenty of people here for this one - the players are out on the field.
    • 19:20 TEAMS: Brazil - Victor - Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Andre Santos - Ramires, Lucas, Elias - Carlos Eduardo, Pato, Robinho /// Ukraine - Dykan - Mandziuk, Fedetskiy, Kucher, Romanchuk - Tymoschuk, Rotan - Gusev, Aliev, Poleyovi - Milevskiy
    • 19:15 The Brazil international roadshow continues with a new manager, Mano Menezes and some new faces after the disappointment of only reaching the quarter-finals in South Africa.
    • 19:15 Why exactly is tonight's game in Derby? Well, apparently the city has the highest concentration of Ukrainian immigrants in the UK. So with no competitive games until they co-host Euro 2012, well... why not?
    • 19:10 Two shouts in the comments section for a 5-0 Brazil win - well, you never know... remember, you can comment on the game below.
    • 19:05 Some injury news - Shevchenko misses out for the Ukraine having failed to shake off the knock he picked up in the Friday night friendly against Canada. Mario Menezes has plenty of options at his disposal and we may see Barcelona wing-back Adriano involved as well as two strikers from the likes of Pato, Robinho, Nilmar, Philippe Coutinho and Andre.
    • 19:00 Good evening everyone and welcome to LIVE updates from Pride Park, where Brazil are in town, and they are facing Ukraine. Not a sentence I ever thought I would write, but an exciting evening lies ahead.
