Black Cats well beaten in Germany

Jordan Henderson was on target for the Black Cats with a free-kick

which he curled into the top corner via an upright in the 65th

minute. By then, though, Steve Bruce’s men were two goals down,

Croatian defender Josip Simunic scoring twice inside the first 30

minutes. And Prince Tagoe, who played for Ghana at the World Cup,

added a third for the Bundesliga side just a minute after

Henderson’s goal, slotting home from close range. Kenwyne Jones

started up front alongside Darren Bent, with Fraizer Campbell

operating wide right to give an indication of how Bruce might

line-up in next Saturday’s Premier League opener at home to

Birmingham.
