Ghana's Black Stars
Junior Agogo is mobbed after his late equaliser

Ghana's Black Stars fought back to draw 1-1 with Australia in a friendly in London on Tuesday.

In a clash between two of this year's World Cup finalists at Loftus Road, John Aloisi gave the Australians the lead after 27 minutes.

The striker converted a penalty after Francis Dickoh had felled an opponent in the box.

With quarter of an hour left, striker Junior Agogo brought Ghana deservedly level when he capitalised on an error by Socceroos goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

The Middlesbrough player dropped a routine corner at the feet of Agogo, who was left with an easy tap-in just inches from the net.

Although Black Stars goalkeeper Richard Kingston made four top-class saves in the first half, Ghana could have won the game in the dying moments.

Just four minutes from time, midfielder Sulley Muntari shot wide from point-blank range.

Earlier, captain Stephen Appiah, Habib Mohamed and Peter Ofori-Quaye had been similarly profligate for Ghana.

Appiah won his 50th cap for the Black Stars on Tuesday, and received an award from the Ghana Football Association before the game.
