Manchester United came from behind to force a 1-1 draw with the Kaiser Chiefs in the first match of an exhibition series on Saturday.
The Chiefs took the lead when central defender Jonathan Quartey scored from the penalty spot nine minutes before halftime after Nemanja Vidic cut down left winger Siphiwe Tshabalala with an untidy tackle.
The European and English champions levelled just before the hour mark when Tevez surged down the right and crossed to the far post where Chris Eagles rose to head the ball into the net off Chiefs captain Jimmy Tau.
Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune was prominent throughout the match and did well to marshall his defenders as the home team hung on for a draw.
During United's last visit to South Africa in 2006, they won the first match 1-0 but lost that year's final 4-3 on penalties.
United travel to Durban to face the Orlando Pirates on Tuesday before playing the winner of the Soweto derbybetween the Chiefs and Pirateson July 26 in Pretoria.
