Football: Sunderland 1 Portsmouth 4.

PORTSMOUTH stormed back from conceding a fourth-minute penalty to Dean Whitehead, capping an ultimately easy victory with Matthew Taylor's stunning 67th-minute strike from fully 40 yards.

"Embarrassing", "shambolic" and "poor" were some of the adjectives used by beleaguered Sunderland boss Mick McCarthy to describe defeat.

Sunderland's collapse began three minutes after the break when Zvonimir Vukic was allowed to swing home a left-footed equaliser.

A dreadful mix-up between Davis and Alan Stubbs gifted Taylor the simplest of chances in the 59th minute before he let fly for the third. Dario Silva completed the rout
