Pic Special: Newcastle 1 Braga 1

Fabricio Coloccini's second half header earned Newcastle United a 1-1 draw against SC Braga in their final pre-season friendly of the summer.

The Magpies trailed to Alan's penalty right on the stroke of half-time, after Mathieu Debuchy was adjudged to have fouled Felipe Pardo.

But captain Coloccini pulled the hosts level on the hour mark when he netted a rarity for United - a goal from a corner.

And it was no more than they deserved for dominating large spells of the warm-up fixture at St. James' Park.

Papiss Cisse and Shola Ameobi both threatened, and although Yoan Gouffran had the ball in the back of the net late on, it was ruled out as they had to settle for a draw.
