Andros Townsend nets late equalizer as England draws Italy in Turin (video)


Premier League attackers Andros Townsend and Graziano Pelle scored as England came from behind to draw hosts Italy 1-1 at Juventus Stadium in Turin on Tuesday.

Pelle opened the scoring with a first half goal that will go down as the 29-year-old Southampton man’s second international goal in three matches.

And though Wayne Rooney had a series good chances including a struck crossbar, it was the Tottenham man who broke through to beat Gianluigi Buffon and tie the score.

And, to underscore things, how about this angle?

The goal counter-acted Pelle’s turn of a Giorgio Chiellini’s cross, which came after the Italian defender turned Phil Jones inside out.
