Great Britain & Ireland put on a tremendous comeback to draw level with Continental Europe at the Seve Trophy following a thrilling day of foursomes.

Having trailed 8-6 after Europe to extend their overnight lead on Saturday morning, Sam Torrance's men fought back to win the afternoon foursomes session 3-1 and square the contest at 9-9 heading into the final day on Sunday.

Stephen Gallacher and Paul Lawrie took a point and a half off Nicolas Colsaerts and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano. They secured a 2&1 victory when Gallacher stroked in a birdie at the penultimate hole.

David Lynn birdied his putt on the last hole to level the scores at nine-each as he and Paul Casey defeated Matteo Mannassero and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
