Branko Ivanovic grabbed a late point for the Serbians two minutes from time at the Alvalade Stadium to cancel out Simao Sabrosa´s magnificent free-kick. However, Scolari became involved in a 30-man melee towards the end of the game that saw Dragutinovic dismissed, but the Brazilian coach denied he punched the defender.
"I defended (Ricardo) Quaresma. He (Dragutinovic) appeared in front of me but I did not touch him," Scolari said.
