Everton 2 Newcastle 2 – Must watch official match highlights as NUFC score twice in last 60 seconds

It ended Everton 2 Newcastle 2 on Tuesday night.

Steve Bruce’s team atrocious on the night.

Not offering a single threat in the entire 90 minutes.

However, a perfect lesson tonight in never giving up.

Or in Everton’s case, never taking anything for granted.

Out of absolute nowhere in the 94th minute a brilliant Florian Lejeune overhead kick brought it back to 2-1.

Then to the disbelief of anybody who had watched the game, the Magpies somehow came away with a point, Lejeune again when he put in a rebound after a teammate struck the post.

A classic image as Jordan Pickford tries to save that equaliser whilst standing a couple of yards behind the line. Clown!

Watch the official highlights here to see for yourself how it all played out.
