Brazil beats Russia 3-0 in friendly ahead of World Cup

MOSCOW (AP) Brazil cruised to a 3-0 friendly win at World Cup host Russia on Friday without the injured Neymar.

In freezing temperatures at Moscow's vast Luzhniki arena, the Brazilians worked hard to break down Russia's deep defense before three goals in 13 minutes early in the second half.

Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev parried Thiago Silva's 53rd-minute shot into the path of Miranda, who scored from close range.
