Rodriguez's late goal gives Southampton draw with Sunderland

Southampton and Sunderland shared the points Saturday at St Mary's after Saints substitute Jay Rodriguez scored late to cancel out Jermain Defoe's goal from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw.

The game got off to a lively start but both sides struggled to find the target early on.

Southampton (0-2-1) had the better chances in the first half but young keeper Jordan Pickford was in inspired form to keep out two shots from Charlie Austin.
