VIDEO: Ex-Leeds United player scores last minute equaliser for Ivory Coast

Leeds United Crest

Max Gradel of Saint-Étienne scored in the game between Belgium and Ivory Coast to tie the game at 2-2.

The goal secured a draw for Ivory Coast against fellow World Cup qualifiers Belgium who had taken a two goal lead through Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini and Roma's Radja Nainggolan.

Ivory Coast hit back through Didier Drogba before Gradel's late equaliser.

Gradel enjoyed a great spell at Leeds United between 2009 and 2011 and his last full season with them led to him scoring 18 goals.

This attracted interest from elsewhere and he made the move to France. However he was linked with a move back to Elland Road in January and Brian McDermott admitted he would be interested in him, but he remains a Ligue 1 player despite the speculation.

Is Gradel the missing link for Leeds United to gain promotion to the top flight?
