Russia comfortably secured maximum points from its clash with Brazil but head coach KABANOV was not happy at times in the manner Russia was going about its workload. Brazil disrupted the Russian flow but Russia hadt he game in hand by quarter time. Captain KONUKH was in the goals but it was BELYAEVA who topped the scoring with four, including a magnificent centre-forward sweep shot and a classy lob. Brazil fought to the end but it was Russia who made the space and scored some unattended goals.
