Squad Announced For Bordeaux
As expected, the squad that travelled is missing a lot of big names and has a youthful look to it.
One surprise is that young North Shields born striker Adam Campbell has made a quicker than expected return from injury and is one of the twenty who travelled.
Other youngsters who are also included are Conor Newton and Yven Moyo.
The squad that travelled is;
Krul, Elliot, Abeid, Amalfitano, Sammy and Shola Ameobi, Anita, Bigirimana, Campbell, Cisse, Coloccini, Ferguson, Marveaux, Moyo, Newton, Perch, Ranger, Simpson, Tavernier and Williamson.
The likes of Ba, Santon and Tiote are predictably left back on Tyneside after picking up knocks on Monday night, while Jonas Gutierrez is also left to recharge his batteries.
