Atwal would have been anxious that the scoreline was running away from the hosts but their comeback began with the match of the day as Yuta Ikeda and Gavin Green won three of the final four holes against Levy and Rafa Cabrera Bello to secure a winning point on the 18th green.

Bjørn said: "We got off to a really good start and things looked like they were going our way and it turned a little bit on its head in the end".

Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton then gave Europe the lead with a 2-and-1 victory over Kiradech Aphibarnrat and An Byeong-hun, before Matthew Fitzpatrick and Thomas Pieters doubled the advantage by beating Poom Saksansin and Kang Sung-hoon 3 and 2.

They dominated throughout the match, with Kang firing birdies on the first two holes, and Poon scoring a birdie on the 14th.

Chelsea step-up their search to replace boss Antonio Conte
The former Juventus and Italy boss says that goes with the territory of working at Chelsea and does not happen at other clubs. I've got no concerns at all about Chelsea who were immaculate as they were in the summer, absolutely immaculate", he said.

"I suspect that we'll go out tomorrow and be ready to play, and foursomes is a very different game", Bjorn said.

Bjorn will also captain Europe in the Ryder Cup, which takes place in France this September, with the hosts looking to regain the trophy they lost to the United States at Hazeltine in 2016. "We have got to go out and put some blue on the board and try to win the singles". "Even though we were down early in a lot of matches, we weren't getting blown out", he said. "Today, we made a couple and hopefully tomorrow, they will drop".

"And when you're just one or two down in match play, you can easily flip that, and they did".

Cabrera-bello's unbelievable putting into the second nine saw the European pair go from two down to one up in the space of three holes. That has always been my belief since I took up this captaincy.

The penultimate match to finish saw Hideto Tanihara and burgeoning talent Phachara Khongwatmai defeat Noren and Dunne for the second day running - this time winning 2&1 - as the Europeans failed to win a hole over the back nine in a tight contest.

The 22-year-old emerging Chinese star, Li Haotong holed a final birdie to snatch a crucial half point alongside local Nicholas Fung against Europe's Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Bernd Wiesberger.
