Munich, Germany:

Rhadi Jaidi scored the equalizing goal in injury time Wednesday to help Tunisia hold Saudi Arabia to a 2-2 draw in Group H of the World Cup. Jaidi headed in from 10 meters only minutes after Sami al-Jaber had given Saudi Arabia the lead. Al-Jaber, a 34-year-old veteran, picked up a through ball and slotted it past Tunisia goalkeeper Ali Boumnijel with his first touch in the 84th minute. Al-Jaber, who came on as a substitute in the 82nd minute, has now scored in three World Cups. He also scored in 1994 and 1998, but failed to find the net in 2002. Tunisia took the lead in the 23rd minute when the Saudi defense failed to clear a corner and Ziad Jaziri dropped his left shoulder and sent the ball hard into the top-left corner of the net. The Saudis struck back with a smooth passing move in the 57th. Noor Mohammed got away from Tunisia defender David Jemmali down the right and crossed for Yasser al-Qahtani to clip the ball past Boumnijel at the near post.
