Milan grab point in thrilling draw with Portsmouth

AC Milan has grabbed a point in an exciting 2-2 draw against Portsmouth in the UEFA Cup at Fratton Park.

Younes Kaboul headed past Milan keeper Dida in the 62nd minute to give Pompey the lead before Nwankwo Kanu doubled the lead ten minutes later.

Filippo Inzaghi was becoming increasingly unlucky when he hit the post for the third time in the game but the Rossoneri’s luck was about to change when substitute Ronaldinho was bought down with seven minutes to go.

The Brazilian star put a brilliant 30-yard free-kick into the back of the Portsmouth goal and gave the visitors new hope.

They had to wait until the final play of the game for any more joy, as Zambrotta played Inzaghi through and using his customary predatory skills, Pippo duly netted to send the Rossoneri through to the next round.
