Ayoze Perez has been impressive since arriving from Tenerife in the summer, and we were really pleased when the 21 year-old picked up his first cap for the Spanish U21 side last Thursday night, when he came on as a sub in the 1-0 win over Hungary.
Ayoze Perez – at Sheffield Wednesday in pre-season
Ayoze has looked sharp and fit in the Newcastle first team, and given he’s only just turned 21 in late July, he has plenty of time to improve at Newcastle – and we’re sure he will do just that.
Perez has managed to make an appearance in each of Newcastle’s early games of the season, and he therefore has picked up four first team appearances already for the Magpies.
And it’s not surprising the youngster was simply delighted to represent his country last week, and this is what he had to say to the press about the experience:
“It’s a wonderful moment for me in my personal career,” “I’m flattered that they’ve put so much faith in me and I’m very grateful for this.”
“I didn’t expect it at all, it’s a big surprise for me and I will definitely go for it and try my very best to represent the national team as it makes me very proud.”
Perez so far is one of the bright spots for Newcastle, in what has been a slow start to the season – so far.
But if we can get all 3 points at Southampton on Saturday, which we know will not be easy – we could be on our way.
