The final whistle sounds.

FULL TIME: It's all over in Cuiaba and Fabio Capello begins another World Cup campaign with a 1-1 draw that included a glaring goalkeeping error. Igor Akinfeev palmed Lee Keunho's tame shot into the net but he was reprieved by substitute Kerzhakov, who grabbed a real poacher's goal.
