Newcastle 3 Vitesse Arnhem 2
Newcastle United concluded their pre-season schedule with an entertaining run out in the sun.
A game with a bit of everything, United 3-0 up at half-time before the old dodgy defending on set-pieces let the team down again (look at Lascelles’ reaction when the Dutch side score their first goal).
Saturday’s win means that Newcastle end their friendly matches with a record of: 4 wins, 1 draw, 3 clean sheets, 17 goals scored, 4 goals conceded.
