Sunderland took on a local select XI at the club's training base in Italy, running out 13-1 winners.

“I’m absolutely happy about the performance because it’s the first game with many new faces on the field,” manager Paolo Di Canio told safc.com afterwards.

“[On Wednesday morning] we worked so hard, including a few reps of 800 metres, so the players were heavy in the legs but I’m very satisfied with the performance.

“I saw the movement that I want to see and many, many positive things from this game.”
