Late goal rescues point for Internacional

BELO HORIZONTE, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Internacional's teenage striker Peglow scored with two minutes remaining to earn them a 2-2 draw at Atletico Mineiro in Brazil's Serie A on Sunday, as the hosts failed to put pressure on league leaders Sao Paulo.

The result leaves Atletico four points behind in second place, while Inter, who led the table a month ago, have fallen to sixth.

The Porto Alegre side have yet to win in four league games under coach Abel Braga, who replaced Eduardo Coudet in November.

Yuri Alberto put the visitors ahead with the simplest of headers after nine minutes but Atletico drew level two minutes later when Damian Musto deflected Rever’s cross into his own goal.

Hyoran’s goal 17 minutes into the second half looked like it would give Atletico all three points, before 18-year-old Peglow popped up to level.
