Sunderland striker benefits from inflatable toy

Sunderland took the lead against Liverpool thanks to this bizarre incident involving a beach ball. The big inflatable was apparently thrown onto the pitch by Scouse supporters, so they cannot have any complaints on that front.

Darren Bent’s shot deflected off the beach ball, which was on the edge of Pepe Reina’s six-yard box. The Spaniard’s initial reactions appeared to cause him to try to save the beach ball rather than the match ball!

    The beachball looked slightly offside, but more threatening than Ngog, Voronin, and Babel all together.
