A sublime goal from Cesinha was not enough to claim all three points for Daegu as it drew 1-1 with Sangju Sangmu on Friday.

The home side looked on course for its first win of the K League 1 season after its Brazilian forward turned a stylish backheel into the bottom-left corner from 12 yards out, Jung Seung-won providing the cross six minutes after half-time.
