Novak Djokovic scored a goal in Sunday's charity soccer match in Rio de Janeiro.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- Novak Djokovic and former three-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten both scored in a charity soccer game played before a Brazilian league match in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.

The exhibition was organized by Djokovic's fellow Serbian, Dejan Petkovic, who starred for several Brazilian clubs in the past decade. Former Brazil stars Zico and Bebeto were among the participants.

The 3-3 tie was played at Engenhao stadium before Brazilian league champion Fluminense lost 2-0 to Cruzeiro. Fluminense lifted the league trophy after the match, its first at home since clinching the title last week.

Djokovic joined Kuerten to open a public tennis court in the Rocinha shantytown on Friday. On Saturday, the Brazilian defeated the top-ranked player in a tennis exhibition.
