Amin Chiakha

Dramatic Youth League draw vs Man Utd U19s

F.C. Copenhagen's U19 team earned a late 2-2 draw with Manchester United U19s in the UEFA Youth Cup on Wednesday to maintain their unbeaten start to Group A.

The Young Lions found themselves 2-0 down but clawed the game back in the second half to rescue a point in the 90th minute.

Goals from Ethan Williams and Ethan Wheatley within 13 minutes had put the visitors in control at Tingbjerg Idrætspark.

But FCK fought back after the break. Queyrell Tchicamboud, who caused problems for the visitors all afternoon, was brought down in the box and Emil Højlund duly stepped up to halve the deficit.

And after a period of pressure FCK finally got the leveller in the last minute when Amin Chiakha converted from close range after a fine pass from substitute Neo Jönsson.
