SEB LARSSON was on the scoresheet for Sunderland Under-21s today, as they won 3-1 at Gateshead.

Larsson flew home from the first-team’s pre-season trip to Portugal earlier this week, with his wife due to give birth.

But the Swedish international, who had asked to be involved in the game, got the opportunity to get more minutes under his belt, when he scored a free-kick for the Black Cats youngsters at the Gateshead International Stadium.

Out-of-favour Danny Graham, who was left out of the trip to the Algarve, was also on the scoresheet with a header.

Striker Mikael Mandron grabbed the other goal for Robbie Stockdale’s side.
