MATCH REPORT: Iceland 2-2 Ghana - Partey's late goal deny Iceland victory

Ghana came from behind to share spoils with Iceland in an international friendly on Thursday evening.
 
Iceland were held to a 2-2 homevstalemate by the Black Stars of Ghana at Laugardalsvöllur Stadium.
 
Goals from Kari Arnason and Alfred Finnbogason in the 6th and 40th minute respectively ended the first half in a 2-0 win in favor of Iceland.
 
After the break, BSC Young Boys defender Kasim Nuhu pulled one back with a brilliant strike in the 66th minute.
 
With five minutes to end the match, Coach Kwesi Appiah's charges piled pressure on the home side to score another goal.
 
Captain Thomas Teye Partey ended the match in a 2-2 draw with his cool finish in the 87th minute of the game.
 
Bayern Munich young attacker Kwasi Okyere Wriedt could have net the match-winner in the dying embers of the game but his strike was saved by goalkeeper Halldorsson.
