Swans forward earns a share of the spoils in PL International Cup opener

Liam Cullen netted a fine equaliser as Swansea City began their Premier League International Cup campaign with a 1-1 draw against PSV Eindhoven.

Cyril Ngonge fired the visitors ahead on 33 minutes with a low effort beyond goalkeeper Josh Gould following a swift PSV counter-attack.

But Swansea's pressure finally told when 16-year-old substitute Josh Thomas's cross fell to Dan Williams, who squared for Cullen to hit an unstoppable shot into the top corner with 13 minutes left to play.

Swansea head coach Gary Richards believes his side can benefit from playing in the competition.

"We have a lot of younger players in the team and they will have learned an awful lot from that game," Richards told the club's official website.

"We told them to make sure they got everything they could from the experience and that they didn't come off the pitch wishing they'd done more. If any team deserved to win, it was us."

Swansea resume their Premier League 2 Division 2 campaign at home to Sunderland on Sunday.
