A brilliant brace from young Italy striker Stephan El Shaarawy brought AC Milan back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Napoli while Serie A leaders Juventus were held 0-0 at home to Lazio on Saturday.

The scoreline relieved some of the pressure on Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, whose side are now 12th on 15 points after a performance that suggested they might have a decent season in them yet.

El Shaarawy hailed his teammates and Milan president Silvio Berlusconi, who flew in by helicopter on Friday to give the players a quick pep talk ahead of the game.

“We really played very well, in the first half as well, we started really well. Then we went a goal down due to an error but in the end we’re happy and the president is happy as well,” he said.
