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.
