England, meanwhile,
won their six-a-side 
fixture, hosted by the European Amputee 
Football Federation (EAFF), 10-3.

The two sides were greeted by a host of footballing legends, including former Pompey and England keeper David James and Brazil’s most-capped player Cafu.

Established in 1990 and sponsored by Simply Business, the England Amputee Football Association (EAFA) provides footballing opportunities for limbless and limb-affected persons of all ages.

Acting independently and without FA funding, EAFA is a registered charity and relies on both the commitment of amateur players, volunteers and partners and the support of donors and sponsors.

The EAFA promotes and develops the sport of amputee football, providing any person with an amputation, congenital deficiency or other limb-affecting disorder with the opportunity to access football at grassroots, club or national level.
