Newcastle did not play well in the first half last night against Rio Ave, and conceded three goals in the first 26 minutes, which led to Newcastle losing their first pre-season game 3-1.
Shola Ameobi – has damaged his wrist
In the second half Shola Ameobi pulled one back for Newcastle, but some bad news after the goal as Shola fell awkwardly on his wrist, and will have an X-ray to see what damage he may have sustained.
And after scoring Shola had to leave the field, and when he left the stadium tonight, his right arm was bandaged rather heavily.
Not sure what it could be, but the X-ray should pinpoint what the damage is.
Shola has a history of picking up various types of injuries in his thirteen years as part of the Newcastle first team.
