Brazil 1 Russia 1 Match Report

  • Brazil and Russia fought out a 1 - 1 draw in a entertaining friendly at Stamford Bridge tonight.

    The Russians made a lively start and were very good defensively throughout. They took the lead in the 73rd minute through Vidor Fayzulin.

    Brazil improved when the lively Hulk came on as a sub and deservedly equalised in the ninetieth minute with a goal by Fred from close range.

    The draw leaves World Cup winner Philipe Scholari without a win in five games in his second spell as Brazil manager.

    Russia coach Fabio Capello on the other hand is still undedefeated since he took over as Russia manager in July 2012.
