Portsmouth beat Sunderland on penalties to win the Checkatrade Trophy following a compelling 2-2 draw in front of a competition-record crowd of 85,021 at Wembley.

The match-up of two former Premier League clubs was a dream scenario for the sometimes maligned competition's organisers, as just more than 85,000 headed through the Wembley turnstiles.

This crowd easily surpassed the previous competition record of 80,841 when Wolves beat Burnley in 1988, and also set a record for the competition at the new Wembley Stadium, surpassing the 74,434 who watched Coventry beat Oxford in 2017.

Only Barcelona's 2-0 win against city neighbours Espanyol in the Spanish top flight on Saturday drew a larger crowd across Europe this weekend, with 92,795 in attendance at the Nou Camp.

And Rubi Jnr was at the Nou Camp and hence me not making Wembley, as I didn't want to be a Johnny no mates! Still, lots of Brownie points earned, as I took the Mrs out for Mother's Day instead. Yep, didn't even get to watch it on the box!
