OSLO - Anders Konradsen's late goal saw Russia held to a 1-1 draw by Norway in its penultimate World Cup warmup game in Oslo on Saturday.

Konradsen's 77th-minute header off Morten Gamst Pedersen's cross cancelled out Oleg Shatov's opener for Russia in the third minute.

Russia could have scored more if not for Norway defender Vegard Forren, who twice cleared off the line with goalkeeper Rune Jarstein beaten.

The draw continued the low-key World Cup preparation by Fabio Capello's Russia team. It beat Slovakia 1-0 in a friendly on Monday and takes on Morocco in Moscow on Thursday in its final tuneup before departing for Brazil.

Playing at the World Cup for the first time in 12 years, Russia will take on South Korea, Belgium and Algeria in Group H.
