Class goal by Wijnaldum on his debut Newcastle v Southampton – Video
Wijnaldum was named in the starting eleven against Southampton today.
A header from Pelle put the visitors in front and then Cisse equalised from point blank range for the equaliser.
The Dutch international had flitted in and out of the game, coming close to putting Newcastle in front in the first few minutes and showing great pace and confidence at times.
However, only three minutes into the second half we saw what Wijnaldum is capable of.
A rapid counter-attack saw Gabriel Obertan race down the right and hoist a cross into the middle, meeting it perfectly with his head to guide it into the top left corner was Wijnaldum as he timed his run and finish to perfection.
