Video: This may surprise Newcastle fans, but Shola Ameobi scored a cracker last night
At Craven Cottage last night Shola Ameobi turned in a top notch display with a brilliant finish and an assist as Nigeria and Italy played out a 2-2 draw.
Now that opening line may be difficult to comprehend for Newcastle United fans to accept, and no, you are reading the words ‘Ameobi’ and ‘brilliant finish’ in the same sentence.
Last year the striker picked up more yellow cards than goals (seven yellows, four goals) and has just one strike so far this campaign in the Capital One Cup, but last night’s effort against the Italians was pretty damn tasty.
He also set-up the first goal and did his chances of participating in Rio next summer no harm at all.
