Newcastle Target Scores Great Goal For France – Video

Two great goals by presumed Newcastle target Bafetimbi Gomis saved France from some embarrassment as they beat Ecuador 2-0 in their warm up game for Euro 2008.


Bafe Gomis – set Paris alight with his goals

Raymond Domenech’s side were struggling for much of the game and it was the Bafe, making his international debut, who showed them all how to score, with two goals in the second half, to wrap up the win.

Chances came for two former Liverpool strikers Djibril Cisse and Anelka in the first half, but it was Ecuador who could and probably should have scored first.

Carlos Tenorio was through in the center just 8 minutes before half time and even rounded keeper Sebastien Frey before hitting the ball straight at Lilian Thuram, who was able to clear as he fell over.

Gomis’ first goal and his first ever for his country was a fantastic goal.

The St. Etienne striker hit the ball from outside the penalty box past keeper Marcelo Elizaga after 60 minutes, and the ball curled like a rocket into the top right hand corner of the goal.

France didn’t particularly look like a flowing side in Paris last night, well that was before Gomis lit up the evening with his two goals.

It was the St Etienne striker’s first cap, and since he is now on display, it will presumably be even difficult now for Newcastle to close the deal, if better teams come in for the striker.

We think they will, if he keeps on scoring goals like he did in Paris tonight.

Here are Bafe’s two goals.

Comments very welcome.

    Eric……sorry got to come back at you mate. You say…… Wise and Co could be more communicative, more obviously in touch with the fan base.WHY!!

    They are in charge of scouting for heaven sake. Gilles Grimondi is the man behind Arsenals scouting network in France….the man attributed with getting most of Wengers French talent in. Does he ever speak to the fans….NO, why would he. Please start being sensible and realistic. Wise and Co. scout, watch games and recommend players. It’s not their role to ‘communicate with the fans’.

    Obafan…..’But I can’t see Newcastle pay that amount of money and like the most here said if he has a good Euro (which he will have) his price will even go higher’.

    You simply cannot know that Gomis will have a good Euro….lets wait and see…and even if he does plenty flops have been signed on the strength of World Cups/ Euro championships.

    I’m liking the fact that we don’t know what’s really happening in the transfer market (for a change!)…It’s about time the club learned to play it’s cards close to it’s chest!..
    …Long may it last!..The proper way to do business!..

    Nice goals from gomis, but then it doesn’t mean that he will be brilliant every game.

    He looks a little bit like Utaka without the pace lol.
