WREXHAM proved nothing is lost until it is won as they came back after being totally outplayed by Romanian side Steaua Bucharest at The Racecourse last night.
The Dragons were not allowed to breathe fire for most of the game as the Romanians strangled the life out of them until Wrexham kicked back with two late goals in five minutes.
Steaua, neat and accurate with their passing, had much the better of the first half, pulling Wrexham apart with a diversity of long and short balls.
Eugen Trica tried an audacious chip after a poor clearance by Shaun Holmes and then Wrexham mounted their first attack.
Good work by Andy Morrell led to a corner that was punched clear by 'keeper Gheorghe Tudor and Shaun Pejic just failed to connect with a header.
Daniel Oprita did connect with a lovely header that forced Kristian Rogers to concede a corner as the Romanians continued to run the show.
Lee Jones, showing pace and vision, was only just wide with a good effort for Wrexham, but the goal Steaua seemed destined to score came four minutes before the break.
Substitute Claudio Raducanu - top scorer for the last two seasons - turned provider for Oprita who could hardly have missed.
Manager Denis Smith swapped the team around for the second half using five substitutes.
They included Darren Ferguson, who is suspended for Saturday's league opener at Scunthorpe, and the lively Lee Trundle who replaced Jones upfront.
But the fluency of Steaua soon had Wrexham on the back foot again.
Trica lifted a clever effort just over and then Andy Morrell should have made more after being perfectly picked out unmarked in the box by Steve Roberts.
But only the woodwork rescued Wrexham before they mounted an unexpected comeback with two goals in five minutes.
Morrell scored a magnificent equaliser and Trundle thrashed home a second to lift Wrexham fans.
