Liverpool beach ball sells for more than £400 on eBay
We’re guessing the buyer wasn’t Pepe Reina
The red beach ball which helped Sunderland to a shock victory against Liverpool has sold for £411.77 at auction. The inflatable, which deflected Darren Bent’s shot past Pepe Reina, was auctioned to raise money for the Alder Hey Imagine Appeal.
It is not known who won the auction, but the National Football Museum in Preston has offered the new owner the opportunity to exhibit their purchase.
