Superb fan video footage of Miguel Almiron goal and special celebration – Relive it here
Miguel Almiron finally got his reward.
In his 27th appearance for Newcastle United, getting a goal.
It was in the 2,192nd minute of his NUFC career when the Paraguayan volleyed home.
His first goal in 405 days of club football and Miguel Almiron had this to say after getting THAT winning goal against Crystal Palace:
“It’s really big for us and the fans.
“Now we have to stay concentrated and keep working hard.
“This shows how hard we work during the week and we have to to keep on winning games at home.
“I’m going to go home and rest and have a drink of coke!
“I hope it’s just the beginning of many goals.”
Talking of being in the right place at the right time, NUFC fan Victoria Najari (@GeordieVic) was also right place/right time in Gallowgate/Milburn corner to get this footage of the Almiron goal and celebrations.
Quality stuff all round.
