BUENOS AIRES, July 3 (Xinhua) -- The national soccer teams of Brazil and Venezuela on Sunday tied in a match of the Group B at the American Cup being held in Argentina.

Brazil had more goal opportunities during the match played at Ciudad de La Plata Stadium, 50 kilometers south of Buenos Aires, the country's capital, however the team was not able to score.

Brazil's forward Alexandre Pato has the clearest possibility of scoring at minute 27.

As a curious event, during the match at minute 28, a dog entered the field and the match had to be interrupted for one minute. After several attempts of the players and assistant to catch it, the dog finally left the field by itself.

The Group B is formed by Brazil, Venezuela, Paraguay and Ecuador.

The American Cup is being held in six different Argentine cities from July 1 to 24.
