Super-sub Charity Adule helped Eibar hold Alaves to a 2-2 draw in Saturday’s all Reto Iberdrola friendly fixture.

The hosts came into the match in fifth with 24 points - a spot above their visitors - on the Spanish log after 14 matches.

Eibar made a poor start to the game as Alaves gained a 1-0 first-half lead before adding the second three minutes after the restart.

In the 61st minute, Adule was brought into the match and the home side pulled one back in the 11 minutes later before the Nigerian struck a minute from time to ensure a draw.

The 26-year-old Nigeria international has now scored seven goals in 11 matches for Eibar this season, while Ghana's Olivia Anokye played from start to finish in Ipurea.

The draw will boost Eibar's readiness for the league resumption on January 5 when they host Sporting Gijón in their next league tie.
