Sammy Ameobi’s goal in extra time at Scunthorpe United was a thing of beauty to behold.
Sammy Ameobi – the lad with the electric feet
The local lad with the electric feet, got the ball on the left wing, and jinxed his way forward, with four players marking him, and of course using his left foot all the time.
And he then moved inside and to his right, and lo and behold hit an unbelievable right foot shot into the corner of the net for the winner – and Newcastle were in the third round of the Carling Cup. And the TV commentators went wild.
And to think most of us thought that right leg of Sammy’s was just to stand on.
But Alan Pardew has revealed today the 19 year-old has been improving all the time in training over the last few months, and it’s unlikely he will now be sent out on loan, since he’s too valuable to the Newcastle first team squad.
This is what Alan told the local press today:
“For the last four or five months he has been improving every day.” “He can be a big player for us, but he needs to concentrate on his game.”
“He’s got a great brother behind him who is a fantastic character at this football club.” “Sammy also has great parents, so he has a great chance to be a big player at Newcastle.”
“Some of the things you get out of him are unbelievable. When he gets into certain situations you just think ‘get rid of it’.
“But he brings two or three players into games and once he wriggles out of those situations they become active.” “He also showed what he can do in terms of scoring goals.”
Sammy has been so good of late we expect that if he keeps up his excellent form, he will even get a call from the England Youth sides.
And to end this article, take one more look at Sammy’s fantastic goal – I feel so much better after looking at this a few more times today. Howay The lads!!
