BrazilKazakhstan made its intentions known early with a clean first quarter, improving that to 4-0 before Brazil came into the game and narrowed it to one by halftime. RUDAY's opening goal was off a high rebound while GUBAREV scored on counter for the third.
UKUMANOV scored from five metres for 4-0 It was then Brazil's turn and awake with four goals pof its own — Crivella on extra; Ruda FRANCO from centre forward, MIRANDA on extra (4-3) at half-time) and SILVA with a five-metre shot to open the third period for 4-4. Kazakhstan scored the next two with PILIPENKO on extra and captain ZHILYAYEV from the penalty stripe.
