Six of Wednesday's winners were in action at Old Trafford on Sunday
Six of England’s victorious side against Brazil in midweek were back in action together at Old Trafford on Sunday as Manchester United played Everton in the Premier League.
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson named four England players in his squad from the one that helped the Three Lions beat Brazil at Wembley on Wednesday night – Tom Cleverley, Chris Smalling, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney, who played a hand in Robin van Persie’s match-winner for United.
And that quartet does not even include senior internationals Phil Jones and Michael Carrick, who both played in the 2-0 victory over against Everton too.
Everton, for their part, featured England duo Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka, who were both substitutes at Wembley.
Both played the full 90 minutes this time and United manager Ferguson was full of praise for his defeated opponents.
He said: "I thought for 20 minutes Everton dominated. They had possession and a couple of chances and were a threat from corners with good deliveries from [Leighton] Baines."
Earlier on Sunday, West Ham, featuring players with England experience including Joe Cole, Mark Noble, Carlton Cole and Andy Carroll, lost at Aston Villa.
Senior striker Darren Bent came on as a second half substitute for Villa to help secure a 2-1 win that lifts them out of the relegation zone.
