An hour before kick-off, with the stadium filling up, the temperature is 28C and the humidity inside the stadium is 57%.

The players take a stroll on the pitch to get an early indication on the conditions - fierce heat and heavy humidy.

England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson confirms that Michael Owen will start the match.

The Liverpool striker had been doubtful all week after suffering a groin injury in the 3-0 win over Denmark, but came through a training session on Thursday.

"Michael will start the game," Eriksson said after arriving at the stadium. "Of course that's good news for us.

"This is a game for Michael Owen. Of course for the others as well, but I think Michael is waiting for these big games. You have always seen that in his life."

0530 BST: The conditions in Shizuoka are hot and sunny, with the pitch-side temperature likely to exceed 30C.

Thursday's wet, cool and breezy weather raised hopes in the England camp that the conditions would suit the European team.

But by Friday the weather had changed - to the delight of the South Americans.

The good news for England, though, is that forecasters say there is a chance of showers during the game.
