Edited highlights

4 min: Dunga's first shot nodded away by Hendry for corner.

4 min: From corner Scots fail to cover. Cesar Sampaio, at near post, heads in hardly challenged.

4 min: Durie cleverly hits ball as it comes over shoulder, but wide.

12 min: Scotland escape as Leighton touches away Hendry's back header.

15 min: Huge drive by Roberto Carlos superbly deflected away by Leighton.

19 min: First sight of Ronaldo brilliantly slithering past Scotland's defence. Leighton saves.

28 min: Pressure from Scotland emphasised by Junior Baiano needing to clear acrobatically to stop centre reaching Durie.

37 min: Cesar Sampaio ruins earlier success by careless, though hardly dangerous, challenge on Gallacher in penalty area.

38 min: Collins, showing calm under great pressure, carefully places in debatable equalising penalty.

48 min: Ronaldo links with Bebeto, whose left-foot drive grazes the post.

51 min: Rivaldo blasts a shade over.

53 min: Brazilian pressure increases as Ronaldo's back heel confuses the entire Scottish defence.

54 min: No Scot placed to meet dangerous Gallacher low centre.

73 min: Dunga's through pass pierces Scottish defence. Cafu chases in but Brazil are lucky to reap goal as ball deflects off Leighton and then Boyd into net.

82 min: Taffarel comfortably stifles Durie's best shot.

86 min: Desperate turn and shot by Gallacher fails.
