Goals from Anice Badri and Fakhreddine Ben Youssef saw Tunisia come from behind to draw 2-2 with Portugal in Braga on Monday.

Euro 2016 champions Portugal were held to a 2-2 draw by Tunisia in their first World Cup warm-up match.

Portugal were without star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who helped Real Madrid to win a third consecutive Champions League title in Kiev on Saturday.

But despite Ronaldo’s absence, Fernando Santos’ side led 2-0 in Braga on Monday, only to be pegged back by the determined visitors.

AC Milan striker Andre Silva headed Portugal into the lead and when Joao Mario fired home a 20-yard drive, a straightforward victory appeared to be on the cards.

But Nabil Maaloul’s men had other ideas, reducing the deficit through a well-placed strike from Anice Badri in the 39th minute.

Amid a raft of second-half substitutions and shortly after a disallowed William Carvalho header, Tunisia then produced a scrappy equaliser through Fakhreddine Ben Youssef to claim an unlikely draw.

Saif-Eddine Khaoui slotted a first-time shot wide in the first minute as Tunisia made a bright start, but Ricardo Quaresma should have opened the scoring.

Goalkeeper Mouez Hassen hit a loose pass straight to the winger, whose first touch let him down, with a subsequent floated finish clearing the crossbar comfortably.

Portugal took the lead in the 22nd minute, though, as Quaresma made amends for his miss.

Quaresma beat his marker on the right wing and delivered a deep cross from which Andre Silva got up highest in the penalty area to send a fine header past Hassan’s grasping right hand.
