Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was involved in a furious incident in the tunnel during the England-Brazil match

England faced Brazil at Wembley on Saturday night, with Three Lions coach Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink leaving angry over a number of decisions during the first half.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was at the center of an angry confrontation with the fourth official in the first half of England's match with Brazil on Saturday night.

It is understood that the England manager, who is part of manager Gareth Southgate's team, was furious with a number of decisions in the first half. When the players and officials headed to the dressing rooms at half-time, the former Chelsea striker made his feelings clear to the official.

Speaking before the second half, Channel 4 presenter Kelly Somers revealed: “Well, I can tell you it was probably rowdy on the pitch, and it was exactly that in the tunnel as well. I sit behind the Brazilian bench, and they were fired up all through the first half.

“England coach Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink followed the fourth official into the tunnel. They were deep in conversation. Unfortunately, I am not multilingual, and it was not English.

“But Danilo was involved too. Hasselbaink’s message was ‘one, two, three, four fouls, too many fouls.’ So it will be interesting to see if the referee will manage the second half differently.

It is believed that Hasselbaink's complaints centered around the decision not to send off West Ham star Lucas Paqueta during the first half at Wembley Stadium. He was booked for a foul on Jude Bellingham and quickly had the midfielder sent off again.

This time, the referee chose to keep his cards in his pocket, while Bellingham also informed the linesman of his complaint. The first half ended in a draw between the two teams. Surprisingly, Paqueta walked out of the dressing room in the second half and was eventually substituted in the 70th minute.

Hasselbaink seemed to calm down during the second half. He took his place on the England bench among his fellow coaching staff members.

He added: “Getting where we are has been difficult, but getting to the next stage is the biggest challenge of all and we hope Jimmy will help us get there.”
