THERE’S no chance of any Sunderland AFC fans oversleeping on Wembley Sunday thanks to two of the team’s Cup run heroes.
Skipper John O’Shea and midfielder Jack Colback have recorded wake-up calls to give the 30,000 fans facing a 540 mile round-trip to London for the Capital One Cup final match, and those staying at home to watch the game, an early start.
Black Cats first team captain John O’Shea has recorded a message to psyche fans up ahead of the tie against Manchester City, which kicks off at 2pm on Sunday.
While Jack Colback has recorded his own version of popular SAFC supporters’ song Que Sera Sera.
Credit card company Capital One and the football club said they know what makes fans tick, and thought the alarm calls would be the perfect way to wake supporters up on the big day, though many people won’t be able to sleep the night before.
Jaidev Janardana, chief marketing officer at Capital One, said: “We hope that the messages help get the fans out of bed and on the way for what is set to be a fantastic Capital One Cup Final.
“Sunderland supporters are facing a long trip on the Sunday, and we wanted to do something to recognise their loyalty and the journey they’re making.
