PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (UPI) — Giorgio Chinaglia headed in a goal in the 51st minute Monday, enabling the North American Soccer League champion New York Cosmos to score a 1-1 tie against a Trinidad All-Star team.

Trinidad took the lead in the 31st minute when Ricky Goddard beat Cosmos goalie Erol Yasin. Chinaglia evened the score on a header off a free kick by Ron Atanasio. It was Chinaglia's eighth goal of the Cosmos' current exhibition tour.

The Cosmos won the first three games of the tour in the Bahamas, outscoring their opposition 31-2. Wednesday the NASL champs play in Trinidad against Nautico of Brazil.
