Sunderland fans have been praising the brilliance of Bryan Oviedo, after the Costa Rica international scored a sensational goal in the Black Cats draw at Millwall.
There hasn’t been much to cheer about for Sunderland fans this season, but the travelling support certainly enjoyed Oviedo’s strike to open the scoring at The Den on Saturday.

Oviedo played a quick one-two from a corner before dummying past one defender and smashing a left-footed strike into the top corner. The hosts drew level in the 69th minute through Shaun Hutchinson and the Black Cats are still four points adrift of safety, so there is work to be done yet.
Still, the travelling fans were treated to a glorious goal from Oviedo and have clearly enjoyed his performances this season. The 28 year-old, valued at £2.2million on Transfermarkt, has grabbed two goals and added four assists this season after signing from Everton last January.
Sunderland fans took to Oviedo’s post match tweet to congratulate him on the goal, and tell him just what they think of the season he’s having…
Well played lad- you’ve been our best player this season. Keep up the good work! 🔴⚪️

Don’t worry Bry. You’ll get picked up. Probably by a PL team. Don’t deserve to get grouped with the rest of them no-hopers in league one
