Vagner Love on target as Roberto Carlos continues winless managerial career
A hat-trick for Seydou Doumbia was the difference between the two sides, in an eight-goal thriller that leaves big spending Anzhi in a lowly eighth position in the Russian Premier League.
'We achieved an important victory away from home against a strong opponent," said Flamengo target Vagner Love. "They started better, pressed hard and surprised us with the goal.
"When we turned the score around early in the second half, they were shaken and lost the game then.
"From there we got three quick goals and took the victory."
