Adebayor sparks Arsenal comeback

9:43 am on 9 August 2008

The Arsenal football side has rallied from 2-0 down to defeat hosts Ajax 3-2 on the opening day of the Amsterdam four-team tournament.

Inter Milan, under new coach Jose Mourinho, drew 0-0 with Sevilla in the day's other game.

Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice for Arsenal and also laid on a goal for Dane Nicklas Bendtner.

The Londoners fell behind in the 33rd minute when a headed clearance from Kolo Toure was snapped up by Luis Suarez, who netted with a fierce volley.

Suarez then set up Ajax's second goal for the unmarked Klaas Jan Huntelaar two minutes later.

But Arsenal turned the tide with a three-goal blitz in 15 second-half minutes.

Arsenal next meet Sevilla while Ajax take on Inter.
