Chris Coleman played a young side including Ethan Robson and a strike pairing of Asoro and Josh Maja, and they repaid their boss in style.

It left Sunderland fans delighted. Here's a selection of their comments from Twitter.

@DogLayer: All this talk of Rodwell this week, man with the heart of a pea on 70 grand a week, bleeding the club dry so isn’t it great to see a young academy lad, Joel Asoro, run his heart out for the cause & get the winner? #safc
