HARTBERG, Austria (AP) - Iran equalized in the second half to draw 1-1 with Angola in a World Cup warm-up game on Friday, stretching its winless streak to four matches.

Karim Ansarifard scored the equalizer in the 56th minute after being set up by defender Ehsan Hajsafi and delivering a low diagonal shot past Angola keeper Delgado Elber.

Silva had scored with a header on his international debut to give Angola the lead three minutes before halftime.

Iran hasn’t won since beating Kuwait in Asian Cup qualification in March. Coach Carlos Queiroz’ team recorded goalless draws with Belarus and Montenegro in its other warm-up games in Austria.

Iran has a final test against Trinidad and Tobago in Sao Paulo on June 8 before taking on Nigeria, Argentina and Bosnia-Hercegovina in Group F at the World Cup.
