Tunisia conceded a last-gasp equaliser against 10-man Turkey on Friday to register a 2-2 draw in a World Cup warm-up match for the second game running. Four days after producing a two-goal comeback against Euro 2016 champion Portugal, Tunisia went behind to Turkey captain Cenk Tosun's 54th-minute penalty.

Anice Badri fired in a rising half-volley from 20 meters (yards) to equalise two minutes later before Tosun was shown a red card after leaving the pitch to argue with fans.

Tunisia captain Ferjani Sassi put his side ahead in the 79th minute when his low shot went in off goalkeeper Serkan Kirintili's right-hand post.

Turkey then leveled in the 90th minute when Caglar Soyuncu scored from close range following a quickly-taken free kick, a goal that sparked a pitch invasion by their fans.

Tunisia will open their World Cup Group G program against England on June 18 before going on to play Belgium and Panama.
