Brazil edged Estonia in an keenly-contested friendly in Tallinn this evening.

Sevilla forward Luis Fabiano grabbed the only goal in a match which marked the first-ever meeting between the two sides.

The visitors were expected to score a hatful against their unfancied opponents but, despite bossing proceedings for long periods, Dunga's troops only came away with Luis Fabiano's 43rd-minute strike to show for their efforts.

The hosts gave a good account of themselves against the five-time world champions and might have taken the lead midway through the opening half, when Konstantin Vassiljev drew a smart stop from Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

However, a solid performance by the home side was soured when Dmitri Kruglov was given his marching orders five minutes from full-time.

Both sides are back in 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifying action on 5 September, when Brazil take on arch-rivals Argentina in the South American Zone and Estonia meet Turkey in European Zone, Group 5.
