Berekum Chelsea pushed their Viareggio Cup quarter-final match against Genoa to penalties snatching the equalizer with 30 seconds left on the clock.
The Italian side had taken the lead from the spot through Flavio Bianchi and were cruising to victory.
But the Ghanaian side never gave up and pushed hard until John Attuquaye levelled for the Blues.
It was a long kick from the centre circle by the goalkeeper and it met Attuquaye whose slight contact directed the ball into the net.
The winner of the last eight had to be decided on penalties and Genoa triumphed 4-2.
