Florian Thauvin chosen in ‘Team of the round’
Florian Thauvin only made his first start for Newcastke United on Tuesday night and already he is picking up accolades from further afield.
The French winger had impressed in a late substitute appearance at Old Trafford and against Northampton Town he provided the cutting edge.
After scoring the first goal with an impressive volley, Thauvin went on to create all three of the other goals.
Subsequently, the Newcastle winger has been named in the Capital One Cup team of the round.
Appearing alongside Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe, who scored a hat-trick, in this team of the second round, Thauvin will hopefully go on to bigger and better things with Newcastle.
Still though, he can look back on where it all started…
This is the write up the Capital One Cup official website gave Florian Thauvin, followed by the full team and manager of the round.
Midfielder: Florian Thauvin (Newcastle United)
Thauvin made his St. James’ Park bow in Round 2 and quickly endeared himself to the Newcastle faithful, producing a mesmerising display as the Magpies moved into the next round.
The recent signing from Marseille took just three minutes to open his account, and then laid on goals for Siem De Jong, Daryl Janmaat and Mike Williamson as Newcastle brushed Northampton Town aside 4-1.
