Pelle equalizes late as Feyenoord draws with Ajax

Graziano Pelle scored a 90th minute equalizer Sunday to salvage a 2-2 draw for Feyenoord against 10-man Ajax.
Pelle controlled the ball on his chest and slammed it past Kenneth Vermeer to secure a point for Feyenoord 15 minutes after Ajax defender Niklas Moisander was sent off for his second yellow card.
Pelle almost snatched a win in injury time but Vermeer tipped his powerful header over the bar.
Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen opened the scoring in the 12th minute when he fired in from the left after a pass from Ryan Babel, and 18-year-old newcomer Jean-Paul Boetius equalized six minutes later for Feyenoord.
Ajax went ahead again when Siem de Jong deflected Eriksen's free kick into the net early in the second half.
Later Sunday, Eredivisie leader FC Twente plays RKC Waalwijk.
