Brazil beats Bosnia on own goal
ST. GALLEN, Switzerland -- Hulk's cross deflected in off defender Sasa Papac in the first minute of injury time, giving Brazil a 2-1 victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina in an exhibition on Tuesday night.
Two club rivals combined to put Brazil ahead in the fourth minute, with Real Madrid left back Marcelo scoring off a well-placed pass by Barcelona right back Daniel Alves.
Vedad Ibisevic tied it in the 13th, taking advantage on a breakaway after David Luiz gave the ball away with a bad pass near midfield. Goalkeeper Julio Cesar appeared to have a chance to stop Ibisevic's low shot, but the ball bounced past him.
Brazil, the 2014 World Cup host, faces Denmark in Germany in May, then has a three-game U.S. tour with matches against the hosts on May 30 in Landover, Md., Mexico on June 3 at Arlington, Texas, and South American rival Argentina on June 9 at East Rutherford, N.J.
