Cape Town: Portuguese winger Bebe scored in injury time to give Manchester United a 1-1 draw against Ajax Cape Town in the Premier League team's second pre-season game.

Substitute Bebe arrived at the far post to finish powerfully from a Marnick Vermijl cross at Cape Town Stadium in a game that burst into life in the final five minutes.

Alcardo Van Graan gave the home side an 85th-minute lead with a clever finish from a corner in cold and rainy conditions.

Bebe late strike earns draw for Man United

The Portuguese winger scored in the injury time to spare the Red Devils' blushes against Ajax Cape Town.

United then surged forward and Bebe kept them unbeaten on their two-game tour of South Africa, following a narrow win over Amazulu earlier in the week.

New signing Shinji Kagawa played 75 minutes in midfield, and sent a second-half header just wide from close range following a cross by Javier Hernandez.
