GYOR, Hungary (AP)—Guus Hiddink’s last match as Russia coach saw his team draw 1-1 with Hungary in an international friendly.

Hungary went ahead in the 39th minute when Vilmos Vanczak scored his first goal for his national team, the defender controlling the ball in the penalty area and beating Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev from 10 yards out.

AP - Mar 3, 2:04 pm EST 1 of 6 World Soccer Gallery Striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, on as a substitute, leveled the scores in the 59th minute when he kneed the ball in from close range after a defensive lapse allowed him to latch onto a corner kick.

Neither team qualified for the 2010 World Cup. Hiddink is set to become Turkey coach in August.
