Squad wear special warm-up t-shirts.

The players wore special t-shirts ahead of the home clash with Tottenham as part of 'Invest in Africa' Day.

The Black Cats took to the field in the pre-game warm up sporting shirts emblazoned with the challenging question ‘2013 – Time to Invest in Africa?’ across the front.

The back of the t-shirts showcased a range of compelling economic statistics from a continent where average economic growth will be 4.8% in 2013, compared to forecasts of 0.9% in the UK and similar austerity throughout Europe and America.
