Newcastle Players Advance To World Cup Quarter Finals


France beat Nigeria tonight in the round of the last 16 to reach the quarter finals of the World Cup, and Newcastle’s Mathieu Debuchy played the whole game for France, and had a good game.

FBL-WC-2014-MATCH53-FRA-NGR-FANS

Mathieu Debuchy – in action tonight

His three games at the World Cup so far has seen Mathieu show just how much he has improved in the 18 months he’s been at Newcastle, but unfortunately that probably means he will leave Newcastle when the first club comes in with a £12M bid – which is apparently the transfer fee placed ion his head by Newcastle owner Mike Ashley.

Paul Pogba got the nod over Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko in the starting line up for France – and the Juventus man scored the all important first goal after 79 minutes.

The game was close throughout the game, but in the last 20 minutes France started to press, and they had the ball kicked off the line by Moses, and then Yohan Cabaye hit the underside of the cross-bar and the ball came out – and the technology showed it did not go over the line.

But then a poor clearance by goalkeeper Nyema, who could only paw away a cross, saw Pogba take his chance and he headed the ball into an empty net to put the French ahead with only 11 minutes remaining.

France were fairly comfortable in those final minutes and then four minutes into the five minutes of added time, French play-maker Valbuena laid on France’s second goal, and his cross was put into this own net by former Everton defender Yobo.

That was good play by the Frenchman, as it looked like France would just hold the ball near the corner flag to see out the game.

With two minutes to go Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko had come on, and he has so far played in all of the France’s World Cup games, starting two of them, and Moussa has also been in good form.

Shola Ameobi, who will be off the payroll at Newcastle tomorrow, did not make an appearance in this game.

France now play the winner of the Germany – Algeria game, which kicks off at 9:00 pm UK time.

It’s great to see the Newcastle players advance to the round of the last eight.

Comments welcome.

A Sportsman evening Rob Lee and Don Goodman will take place on Friday evening, July 11th at Hedworth Hall, so if you would like to attend this exciting event here is the information.

    Somebody posted earlier on that our payers vulnerable for sale were
    Krul
    Santon
    Debuchy
    Sissoko.
    It is probable that Santon wants to stay on Tyneside -so exclude him.
    I would potentially add Mr T -but I think he’s happy here and probably Percy might not want to sell him.
    So it looks as if Debuchy is going to fund some bargain basement players – I would be very surprised if we sign any 10 million+ players.
    I think we are goiung to turn into a club just interested in finding potentially good players -with the ultimate purpose of not building a quality team -but to flog them on quickly at a profit. No consideration will be given to producing a quality team/quality football.

    According to the French clubs we are trying to buy players from their price goes up because of the World Cup. So Mr. Ashley please ask £20m for Debuchy then he can join … a French club. Seems like a fair deal. C’est la vie as they say in Byker.

    His actual offices are in Shirebrook bud right behind the massive warehouse that is Sports direct. I only live a couple of mile away but have never had my opportunity to voice my concern on what he is actually trying to achieve with Nufc

    online cheers -I think a lot of diehard fans/those who would watch Newcastle tops on a washing line/zebra watchers are realising albeit sometimes slowly -that there is nothing really on the horizon to look forward to.
    hence a slow erosion of the fans hopes and aspirations.
    When there were discussions on here about the advertising some time ago – my research into Spurs revealed they had a waiting list for ST’s to the tune of 47,000 if I recall correctly. Compare that with us now -we are going backwards.

    Does anyone else here think Ed should be given, somehow, some sort of recognition for all the work he puts in to this site? The guy writes articles wether on holiday, I’ll, you name it, Ed works his arse off for us fans through thick and thin. An MBE would be nice, or a statue outside St James….haha.seriously though, wish there was some way of doing this, a total legend and I for one am very grateful to have the pleasure of following the best blog in the land, been reading for what feels like years. The club should reward him!!!! ….ah, hold on, this is MA we’re talking about…

    @jesper: Nah, mate. Wor lass lives down here. Moved to London with her while she finished Uni and then moved to Brighton (where she’s from) for the slightly cheaper cost of living… now we’re skint and moving to Newcastle (where I’m from) for cost of living that’s actually bloody affordable!

    You know all of us supporters want the team to do well the club to be respected and have players wanting to come to Newcastle to play in front of 52,000 passionate fans every home game but the reality is we have an owner and manager who both don’t seem to understand the pride and passion of the supporters and seem quite happy to run our club into the ground. People/supporters need to play the long game and not be so short sighted. Stay away from the ground and don’t buy NUFC merchandise. Those who say they are supporting the team and not the regime by attending matches are just deluding themselves. Stay away and show your contempt for the current owner. It might just work.

    roblee7 and all others supporting some recognition for Ed, yes I’m sure the Journal/ Chron would do a nice spread on him and his wife, whose love she shares with Newcastle United.

    And, it’d be nice if Charnley were to treat him and his wife to a good day at SJP.

    However,

    Bit old news but Hull are making intersting moves in the transfermarket. Two goalscoring and assist making wingers in Snodgrass and Ince.

    Also Southampton are going after Dusan Tadic as Lallanas replacement.

    while we are all appreciating Ed, its worth noting articles like this are a dying breed. The way this ship is sinking, there will be no NUFC internationals in the next world cup. Pretty pathetic…..

    Anyone seen the supposed new home kit?

    Remember when some of us,joke about changing our stripes to red and white or getting rid of them? Well the supposed new kit has about a quarter of the stripes missing from the top (tits) area of the shirt!

    Is there no bounds to the fatty’s shenanigans? Fat slug!
