Sunderland’s League Cup dream continued as the Black Cats eliminated Queens Park Rangers on penalties, and Lee Burge was the hero on the night.

The £2k-a-week goalkeeper was a star throughout the match, keeping a persistent QPR side at bay with a flurry of excellent saves. And in the shootout, Burge again came up clutch for Sunderland.

The 29-year-old saved the first penalty of the contest before two missed QPR penalties saw Sunderland win 3-1 in the shootout, with Berge emerging as a hero for the League One side.

Sunderland will now be in the draw for the League Cup quarter-finals, with Arsenal and Chelsea also progressing on the night to the final eight of the cup competition.

A League One side has never made it to the final of the competition. Yet Sunderland and Burge have given hope and confidence to supporters that the impossible could well be on the cards.

The Black Cats have made it to the League Cup final in recent years, with Sunderland going all the way to Wembley Stadium in the 2013/14 season, which Manchester City won 3-1.

Sunderland fans are speechless over Burge performance
