Brazil gets 1-1 draw against Russia

LONDON -- Fred scored in the 90th minute to give Brazil a 1-1 draw against Russia on Monday.

Brazil, the 2014 World Cup hosts, doesn't have a win since Luiz Felipe Scolari returned as coach.

"We are improving by stages and we will arrive strong to the World Cup," Scolari said. "Our game continues on the same stable line, although sometimes we have faced a very ordered and compact team. Russia played the ball well and due to a series of factors we did not score, but in the end, we had a good reaction."

Victor Fayzulin gave Russia a 1-0 lead in the 73rd minute with a powerful strike.

But Fred completed a flowing move instigated by substitute Hulk, tapping Marcelo's cross into the net from close range at Stamford Bridge.

Scolari avoided losing in his return to the Chelsea ground where he was in charge for only seven months before being fired in 2009.

"There are no shortcuts to success," Scolari said. "We must improve in stages."

Brazil has lost to England and drawn with Italy since Scolari was re-hired to repeat his 2002 World Cup-winning success.
