A Newcastle United Official Announcement on Tuesday morning has revealed a Callum Wilson injury blow.

The club stating that the striker has been ruled out of the rest of the season.

Callum Wilson ‘tweaking his hamstring’ on Friday night during the 4-2 win over Leicester.

The NUFC top scorer played the full 90 minutes plus added time, so obviously it sounds like something that has only become apparent once the adrenaline had worn off.

With only 12 days and three games of the season remaining and Newcastle United only able to finish between 11th and 17th, it isn’t the biggest disaster for the club.

However, after scoring twice in only his second start back after three months out following injury against Southampton in early February, Newcastle fans and no doubt Callum Wilson himself, had wondered whether a late call could be possible for England’s Euro 2020 campaign this summer (11 June to 11 July the tournament dates.

This injury though looks to have ended whatever hopes did still exist.

Newcastle United Official Announcement:

‘Newcastle United can confirm that striker Callum Wilson will miss the remaining two weeks of the season after tweaking his hamstring during Friday’s win at Leicester City.

The striker scored twice in an impressive 4-2 victory at the King Power Stadium but picked up the injury in the closing stages of the match.

Wilson has scored 12 goals in 26 Premier League outings during his first season with the Magpies.’
