The Argentine defender put in another super performance against Watford on Saturday, and also managed to score his second goal ever for Newcastle, and boy was he excited, as the photo below shows quite clearly. 😀
Fabricio Coloccini – after scoring 2nd goal for Newcastle
Coloccini did not link up with Diego Maradona and the Argentina squad in Germany, although team-mate Jonas Gutierrez was included for the game at Munich on Wednesday night.
Instead Coloccini is now on Tyneside reliving his second goal today (again and again and again ….), as the lads were given a day off following their excellent win on Saturday.
Coloccini told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Firstly, the most important thing for me is playing well and winning with Newcastle.” “I’m only thinking about Newcastle now because I’m not in the squad for the Germany game.”
“But always I want to go to the World Cup, and I have to work hard for that dream.” “I’d love to be representing both Argentina and Newcastle United at the World Cup in South Africa.”
Coloccini could barely contain his delight at scoring his second goal for Newcastle after just 4 minutes.
And the likable Coloccini wanted very much to talk about his goal again to the Chronicle:
“It was my second goal for Newcastle United, and it made me very happy.” “The fans came away on a long journey, and for them it was good.”
“I thought the team played well. We can play good football, but the pitch was not good.” “When we needed to be strong, the team was strong, and I thought we did our work well.”
“It was frustrating to concede the goal, but we won, and that’s the most important thing.” “At home we are strong, but it is also important we take points away.”
We certainly would like Fabricio to make the Argentine squad, after he has played so well this season for Newcastle.
And surely Maradona will be seeing the headlines surrounding Fabricio’s form in England – he’s supposed to read this blog regularly to keep check on his two Argentine Geordies. 😀
