Geovanni edged the battle of the Brazilians as he salvaged Hull an entertaining 2-2 draw against former club Manchester City at the KC Stadium.
Robinho, drafted in by the Eastlands side for £32.5million after his compatriot's release on a free transfer, was lively but overshadowed by team-mate Stephen Ireland who grabbed both the visitors' goals.
Two horrendous defensive gaffes, from Tal Ben-Haim and Kamil Zayatte, made it 1-1 before a sublime second from Ireland and Geovanni's deflected free-kick cancelled each other out.
