Juan Manuel Vargas scored in the 70th minute to help Peru tie
five-time World Cup champion Brazil 1-1 on Sunday at Monumental Stadium in South
American qualifying for the 2010 World Cup.
Kaka opened the scoring in the 39th minute for Brazil with a clear shot past
Peru goalkeeper Diego Penny. Brazil was sluggish and missed several chances to
score, despite the return of Ronaldinho from an ankle injury.
Peru, which tied Paraguay 0-0 and was shut out by Chile in its first two World
Cup qualifying matches last month, hasn't qualified for a World Cup since 1982.
Brazil is tied with Colombia for third place in the region with five points.
On Wednesday, Brazil will face Uruguay in Sao Paulo, and Peru will play Ecuador
