Former England coach Fabio Capello saw his Russia side come from behind to draw with South Korea thanks to an equaliser from Aleksandr Kerzhakov.

The substitute, 31, drove the ball home to join Vladimir Beschastnykh as Russia’s top scorer with 26 goals.

South Korea had led through a long-range shot from Lee Keun-ho in the 68th-minute which squirmed through the hands of goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.

But Kerzhakov rescued a point after a shot from Alan Dzagoev had been saved.
