Venezuela rally for 3-2 victory over Haiti

CARACAS, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Venezuela was forced to overcome a two-goal deficit for a 3-2 friendly victory over Haiti on Wednesday in one of its final matches before the start of South American qualifying for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Venezuela controlled most of the play in the first half but the best chances fell to the visitors, including a shot by Alexandre Boucicat in the 23rd minute that was deflected onto the post.

In the second half, Haiti surged into a two-goal lead with headers from Jean Phillippe Peguero and Sampeur Maxo before the home side staged a late rally. Venezuela's comeback began in the 77th minute when Leonal Vielma converted a penalty and six minutes later a slip in the Haitian defence allowed Hector Gonzalez to equalise. With the momentum firmly in their favour, Giobany Ribero rounded off the rally with the winning goal just two minutes before the final whistle.

Venezuela opens the South American qualification round for the World Cup against Ecuador in Quito on September 6.
