Football: Marmoush's debut goal gives Stuttgart 1-1 draw with Frankfurt

FRANKFURT, Germany: Omar Marmoush scored a late goal on his debut for 10-man VfB Stuttgart as they snatched a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt in a pulsating Bundesliga encounter on Sunday.

Filip Kostic came off the bench to score with a superb solo effort for Frankfurt in the 79th minute, picking up a pass from Djibril Sow and flashing a shot across goalkeeper Florian Mueller and in at the far post to give his side the lead.

Frankfurt looked set to collect their first league win of the season when Stuttgart's Waldemar Anton was shown a straight red card in the 82nd minute for pulling down Rafael Borre, who was through on goal, just outside the box.

However, the 22-year-old Marmoush had other ideas, firing home the rebound from his own shot in the 88th and, though Frankfurt hit the crossbar in the fourth minute of stoppage time, Stuttgart held on for a point.

Stuttgart rise to 10th in the table on four points after four games, while Frankfurt are 15th on three points.
