Newcastle United overcame Rotherham United 1-0 in a cagey affair to move up to second in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.
Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu’s wonder strike proved to be the difference on a night when the South Yorkshire side looked content to sit back and frustrate Newcastle.
The all important goal came five minutes before the break. On loan winger Atsu, received the ball from Jonjo Shelvey and dancing his way down the right wing, cut inside and unleashed a superb curling shot to the top left corner that left the goalkeeper with no chance.
The alacrity and execution of the goal surprised many with the Ghanaian seemingly carving a gem of a goal out of nothing.
A hilarious footage of a Rotherham United fan commentating the sequence of events with an extremely subtle ‘sh*t’ the moment the goal is scored just sums up the surprised reaction from those in attendance at the New York Stadium.
Should go viral. Check out the video below and make sure it isn’t on mute!
