Five Russian exclusions in this game compared to the hosts 0. Very well behaved, I must say.

Having said that, Brazil get an exclusion and Russia hit the bar and it bounces back out. Russia get the deficit back down to one again.

Russia have scored the only counter attack goal of the game. They've thwarted the Brazilians brilliantly.

Right, game update after I had to take a call. Russia equalised before the break and both sides cancelling each other out at the moment. Even stevens, as one might say.

Russia take the lead for the first time as the ball is passed out wide and then turned in at the far post, under the keepers body.

Brazil #12 with an exclusion as a Russian timeout is called.

Russia hit the post and bar in successive attacks as they look to take thegame beyond Brazil. Two Brazilans out on exclusions and Russia have indeed got a two goal cushion now. Perfect timing, but inevitable.

Russian #5 gets excluded, Brazilian timeout. As you'd maybe expect.

Brazil score their first goal since the end of the first quarter to get back to within one of Russia.

Brazil #10 excluded.
