Newcastle United held their nerve to reach the semi-finals of the Premier League International Cup, beating Sunderland 11-10 in a penalty shoot-out.

Curtis Good had given Newcastle the lead at the Stadium of Light but Lynden Gooch levelled with a penalty. The American then put the hosts ahead in the 68th minute.

But Newcastle forced extra-time through Callum Roberts' 90th-minute free-kick that made it 2-2.

Roberts then had a penalty saved by Max Stryjek early in the extra period, forcing the match to penalties.

Both teams missed at 3-3 in the shoot-out but all the other kicks went in, including the two goalkeepers'. 

With Newcastle leading 11-10, Sunderland's Jake Hackett blasted his effort over to send the Magpies into the last four, where they will host the holders Porto.
