Haiti storms back to draw Euro giants Italy in friendly – News | FOX Sports on MSN

Jean Phillipe Peguero fired a last-minute equalizer as Haiti scored twice in the last five minutes to draw 2-2 against Italy in their international friendly in Rio de Janeiro.

Emanuele Giaccherini had given Italy a 1-0 lead after just 14 seconds before Claudio Marchisio gave them a two-goal cushion midway through the second half.

However, Italy, who start their FIFA Confederations Cup campaign against Mexico on June 16, switched off in the closing minutes allowing Pascal Millien to pull one back from the penalty spot before Peguero scored a stoppage-time leveler.

The fixture, along with being a final warm-up game for Italy ahead of the Confederations Cup tournament, aimed to raise money for those affected by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. via | FOX Sports on MSN
