Azerbaijan's two-goal hero Rahid Amirguliev struck an 80th-minute equaliser to deny Malta their first victory in Euro 2016 qualifying group H in Ta' Quali on Sunday.
The 26-year-old midfielder put the visitors ahead in the 36th minute, but the home side, who had failed to score in their previous five competitive games, hit back in the second half.
Michael Mifsud equalised 10 minutes after the re-start before Alfred Effiong put Malta ahead in the 71st minute.
Amirguliev halted the home celebrations...
Croatia endured a frustrating time against their former midfielder Robert Prosinecki as they were held to a 0-0 draw in Azerbaijan in Euro 2016 qualifying Group H.
There were plenty of high-profile names on show in Baku, with the away side's first XI featuring the likes of Real Madrid's Luka Modric, Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic and Juventus' Mario Mandzukic.
But they were unable to shine despite having plenty of possession against Azerbaijan on what was a memorable occasion for home boss Prosinecki.
