Italy Stunned, Netherlands Cruise

Italy 2-2 Haiti

Haiti struck twice late on to secure a historic 2-2 draw against Italy in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday.

Emanuele Giaccherini and Claudio Marchisio had taken the Italians to a comfortable lead but Olrish Saurel and Jean-Philippe Peguero ensured that the game was drawn.

It capped off a remarkable few days for the minnows, who narrowly lost 2-1 against world champions Spain at the weekend.

Giaccherini did well to instantly control a cross before firing in the opener while Marchisio tapped in a rebound with 18 minutes to go after Stephan El Shaarawy's shot was saved.

Saurel would respond from the spot though after Davide Astori had brought down Jean-Eudes Maurice and Peguero struck at the start of stoppage time to secure a famous draw.

China 0-2 Netherlands

Netherlands cruised to a 2-0 win away to 10-man China in an international friendly on Tuesday.

Captain Robin van Persie opened the scoring from the spot after Arjen Robben had been taken down in the area by Zheng Linpeng.

Qin Sheng was then sent off in the 13th minute for a studs-up challenge on Jonathan De Guzman, which left the hosts with an almost impossible task.

The Oranje were not at their best in the final third though as a host of chances were wasted before Wesley Sneijder completed the win in the second-half.
