Kick-Off: 15:30 Local (07:30 BST) Assistant referees: Héctor Vergara (Canada) Mohamed Saeed (Maldives) Fourth official: Ali Bujsaim (United Arab Emirates) Man of the Match: Rivaldo (Brazil) England's World Cup campaign was brought to an abrupt halt as 10-man Brazil triumphed in the quarter-final in Shizuoka. Goals from Rivaldo and Ronaldinho either side of half-time cancelled out a thrilling opener from Michael Owen, which had given English fans hope of recording a famous victory. A blunder by David Seaman handed Brazil the winner, as Ronaldinho's speculative free-kick caught the veteran goalkeeper flat-footed and went in off the underside of the bar. Brazil survived the controversial dismissal of the game's central figure, Ronaldinho, and deservedly won to become the first team to reach the last four. With most of the favourites already out, the South American superstars now had a great chance of winning their fifth world title. For England, though, it was a story of what might have been.
