West Ham 1-0 Sunderland: Sakho sickener for Advocaat

Dick Advocaat's first match in charge of Sunderland ended in defeat as Diafra Sakho's late goal sealed victory for West Ham.

Former Netherlands boss Advocaat was appointed as Sunderland's head coach on Tuesday, following Gus Poyet's departure a day earlier, but saw his Premier League debut end in disappointment at Upton Park.

Sakho made the most of slack Sunderland defending in the final minute of normal time on Saturday after the visitors looked to have seen the game out for a draw.

The story is too old to be commented.
