Ferreira helps FC Dallas to draw with Inter Milan
FRISCO, Texas — David Ferreira converted a penalty kick in the 75th minute to give FC Dallas a 2-2 draw with Inter Milan on Thursday night as Inter completed a three-game North American exhibition tour under new coach Rafael Benitez.
Samuel Eto’o scored from 30 yards out in the 63rd minute for Inter’s 2-1 lead in a game played in 98-degree heat.
However, Dallas sub Jeff Cunningham dribbled into the penalty area and was taken down by Marco Materazzi. Ferreira scored the tying goal into the upper right corner past Julio Cesar.
Inter took the lead in the 25th minute when Milito scored on a header from 12 yards out.
FC Dallas tied it at 1-1 in the 42nd minute when George John moved up from the back line and headed in a low shot.
In the first two stops on the tour, defending UEFA Champions League winner Inter beat Manchester City 3-0 in Baltimore and lost to Greek champion Panathinaikos 3-2 in Toronto.
