Last gasp Fabricio goal denies Botafogo win

Rio de Janeiro, Aug 16 (IANS): Fabricio scored in the 93rd minute to earn Internacional a 3-3 draw against Botafogo in the Campeonato Brasileiro football tournament.

Botafogo looked set for victory at the Maracana Thursday when Clarence Seedorf's coolly taken spot-kick was followed by Vitinho's second goal - a thumping strike from outside the area, reports Xinhua.

But Fabricio salvaged a point for the Porto Alegre outfit in the last minute by bundling in from close range after Ygor's clever back heel was kept out by goalkeeper Renan.

Despite the result, Botafogo moved to the top of the standings with 26 points from 14 matches while Internacional dropped to seventh, five points behind the leaders.

Also Thursday, Sao Paulo drew 1-1 with Atletico Paranaense at the Morumbi stadium.
