Ok I had this SAFC friendly to write up so I will do so albeit slightly late :D

Sunderland played against a local amateur football team for a work out while they were on their training base in Italy.
NEW signings Jozy Altidore, David Moberg Karlsson and Valentin Roberge were all on the scoresheet as Sunderland romped to a 13-1 win against a local select XI in a behind-closed-doors friendly at their Italian training base this afternoon.

Stephane Sessegnon, who started the game in attack alongside Ji Dong-won, claimed the opening five goals in the first 35 minutes as Sunderland’s players predictably outclassed their amateur opponents.

The scorers were:

Sessegnon scored 5
Karlsson scored 2
Larsson scored 1
Roberge scored 1
Altidore scored 1
Graham scored 1
Ji scored 1
Mandron scored 1

The local side scored with a penalty :lol:
