Watch Bentaleb screamer & Joelinton goal from today’s behind closed doors match at SJP – Video

Joelinton was on the scoresheet and Nabil Bentaleb rattled in a 30-yard screamer in an 11 v 11 training game at St James’ Park today.

The behind closed doors match finished 1-1 and will serve as solid preparation ahead of the return to top flight action, with players having to get used to games without fans ahead of our Premier League clash with Sheffield United on June 21st.

Here is Joelinton’s opening goal, where he looks like a totally different player to the one we’re used to seeing at St James’ Park – albeit via some pretty awful defending:

Bentaleb then fired back with an absolute raker from 30 yards, smashing the ball into the top right corner past the hapless Martin Dubravka:

Two players that may seem as surprise stand-outs due to their struggling performances on the pitch so far in a Newcastle shirt, but positive signs nonetheless.

Will playing in front of an empty stadium he’ll Joelinton realise his potential? He sure looks like a different player here!
