Costel Pantilimon started in goal for the Black Cats in Albufeira with Vito Mannone ruled out through illness, but there was little for either goalkeeper to do in a first half that will not live long in the memory.

Adam Johnson went close to breaking the deadlock early in the second period with a long-range effort that just cleared the crossbar, and the winger also felt he should have had a penalty when he went down under a challenge inside the box just before the hour mark.

Neither side could find a way through, however, as Sunderland made it one win, one defeat and one draw from their three-game tour having beaten Recreativo Huelva 1-0 before losing to CD Nacional by the same scoreline.

Gus Poyet's side complete their pre-season campaign with games against Real Betis and Udinese next week before the opening game of the Premier League season at West Brom on August 16.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
