Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice in stoppage-time as Portugal snatched a 2-1 victory over Egypt in their international friendly in Zurich.
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah put the Pharaohs ahead in the 56th minute when he curled home a low effort from the edge of the area.
That looked like being the winner for Hector Cuper's side until Ronaldo's late intervention.
The Real Madrid forward's header from six yards brought the European Champions level two minutes into time added on.
Two minutes later Ronaldo headed home from Ricardo Quaresma's free-kick, and although the effort was initially chalked off for offside, the Video Assistant Referee awarded the goal.
Thomas Muller's thunderous equaliser ensured the heavyweight friendly between Germany and Spain finished all-square in Dusseldorf.
Rodrigo gave Spain an early lead in the battle between the last two World Cup winners but Muller levelled things up before half-time with an unstoppable 25-yard shot.
Both teams had chances to win the game, with Germany defender Mats Hummels hitting the crossbar and opposing goalkeepers David De Gea and Marc-Andre ter Stegen cementing their reputations as two of the best stoppers on the planet, but no more goals were forthcoming as the match finished 1-1.
Juan Fernando Quintero's late penalty saw Colombia come from 2-0 down to beat France 3-2 in a friendly in Paris.
The hosts were cruising after 26 minutes thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Thomas Lemar, but Colombia were much the better team in the second half.
Luis Muriel had pulled one back before the break and Radamel Falcao levelled after the hour. Then with only five minutes left, Quintero scored from the spot after a foul by Samuel Umtiti.
Ever Banega and Manuel Lanzini scored as Argentina - without the watching Lionel Messi - secured a 2-0 win over Italy at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium.
Miranda, Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho were on target as Brazil beat World Cup hosts Russia 3-0 in Moscow, an Ola Kamara hat-trick helped Norway thrash Australia 4-1 and a Victor Moses penalty gave Nigeria a 1-0 win over Poland.
