Gary Cahill insists that he will learn from his blunder, which led to a Brazil equaliser in last night's 2-1 victory for England at Wembley.

England and Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has insisted that he will learn from the mistake he made during last night's international friendly against Brazil.

The 27-year-old gave the ball away, which led to an equaliser from Fred for the Brazilians in the second half on a night when the Three Lions defeated the South American side for the first time in 23 years.

"I thought I played well overall but if you make a mistake like that it's going to be costly," ESPN quotes Cahill as saying. "[But] that's the nature of my position. Thankfully Frank [Lampard] scored so it didn't spoil the lads' night. It did spoil my night slightly though.

"It was out of character from myself, but I will learn from it and that's great. I showed character to bounce back from it and the team showed character to forget about it and carry on."

Cahill will return to Chelsea for a Premier League clash against Wigan Athletic this Saturday.
