  • Many thanks for joining @danielstorey85 for the commentary and hope it's been enjoyable. Come back later for Manchester City v South China.

  • Fulltime here in Hong Kong, and Sunderland gain a deserved victory after a storming second half and stormy first. They will face either Manchester City or South China in the final.

  • 3-1 Sunderland!!! Karlsson finishes low to seal the game.

  • Wes Brown off for Valentin Roberge, and the defender is also named the Man of the Match. Much deserved and a fine return to form.

  • That is a world class save from Brad Friedel to deny Connor Wickham with his first touch. A fabulous one-handed diving stop to claw the ball away.

  • Wickham on Altidore

  • Another chance for Jozy Altidore, and another one spurned, Friedel making a fine save. From the corner, Ba shoots and Friedel again pushes it away.

  • Dempsey and Huddlestone replaced by Townsend and Carroll for Spurs

  • So have Sunderland warded off the danger of penalties in this semi-final? Spurs have 13 minutes to find an equaliser.

  • Fryers is the guilty man for failing to pick up Brown.

  • 2-1!!! From the resulting corner Sunderland take the lead through a Wes Brown header. He is left completely unmarked at the back post and heads home with ease.

  • Jinking work from Sessegnon, who crosses the ball and forces Dawson to head behind.

  • Johnson and Larsson off for Karlsson and Ba for Sunderland

  • Fine save from Mannone. He parries away a strong shot from Jermain Defoe. The Spurs striker finding space i nthe box as he is prone to do.

  • Corner to Spurs, now on top during this second half.

  • Adebayor shanks an effort well wide of the near post from the edge of the area.

  • Lovely effort from Adebayor. Played in by Dempsey, the Togolese striker dinked the ball towards goal, but Mannone tips over.

  • Fantastic long ball finds Jermain Defoe, but after twisting onto his left foot his shot is blocked.

  • After a mistake by Kyle Walker Jozy Altidore is presented with a chance. The American turns in the area but sends the ball just wide with his left foot.

  • Back underway...
