Sunderland score against Liverpool … via a beach ball!

This match refers to an older game. Go here for the latest Liverpool v Sunderland news.

Sunderland’s first goal against Liverpool today – from Darren Bent – came in the 5th minute thanks to a deflection off a balloon beach ball that had floated into the Liverpool penalty area.

The best part of all this? Reina actually went for the beach ball instead of the football, meaning he ended up going the wrong way, although to his credit he didn’t actually end up holding the beach ball. Shame really.

That’s going to make Rafa Benitez really mad…
