Both sides had chances to run away with the game early on, but Russian resiliency was often equal to Brazil's occasionally disjointed attack. Both Fabio Capello and Felipe Scolari will take solace and substance from their side's displays, and the pair can look optimistically forward to the World Cup next year.
