Danny Graham: On target in San Jose
Swansea City were held to a 2-2 draw by MLS outfit San Jose Earthquakes in the final match of their tour of the United States.
Swansea had led 2-0 thanks to goals from Danny Graham and summer signing Chico, but they were pegged back late on thanks to two goals from substitute Steven Lenhart.
Both sides created chances to open the scoring at Buck Shaw Stadium before Graham managed to do so in the 41st minute when he took advantage of a defensive error to calmly beat home goalkeeper David Bingham.
Swans custodian Michel Vorm kept his side in the lead with a fine save to deny Sercan Guvenisik during a period of pressure from the home side at the start of the second half.
The Premier League side withstood that spell though and netted their second goal on the hour mark when summer signing Chico headed home his first goal for the club following a cross from centre-back partner Ashley Williams.
That looked set to give Swansea the win, but they were hit by a late double by Lenhart.
San Jose pulled a goal back with 10 minutes left when Lenhart turned in a cross from fellow replacement Shea Salinas, and the striker then levelled up the scores with another header in the 85th minute as honours were shared.
