Video: Darren Bent scores against Liverpool with a little help from a beach ball
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!
