Sunderland A.F.C. is not too far above the drop zone as they are currently in 15th place, and they entered halftime against Crystal Palace F.C., who is in 11th place, with no score.
The Black Cats are fighting to the bitter end to stay in the Premier League despite their championship chances being a dream.
Goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon has not had to do much for the Black Cats so far, but he was involved in the biggest highlight of the game as Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann drilled a line drive toward his head.
Pantilimon was hit square in the face, and he was slow to get up as he was examined by the team.
The Black Cats goalie was eventually able to get up and resume playing, and his defense has continued to shine for him in the first half.
Here is the video of this painful looking ball to the face.
