Geneva - A fan who ran on to the pitch in the closing minutes of Russia's friendly with Brazil on Monday caused his players to lose concentration and concede a last-minute goal that cost them victory, according to Russia coach Fabio Capello.
Russia were just minutes away from their first win against the five-time world champions in their fifth meeting against them since the end of the Soviet era, but allowed Fred to score with a tap-in in the 90th minute to give Brazil a 1-1 draw in front of 35 000 fans at Stamford Bridge.
Although upset about the fan, who was quickly bundled away by stewards, Capello said he was happy with the result.
