He may not have scored in his first season back at St James’ Park, but Andy Carroll has just bagged a brilliant goal in today’s pre-season friendly against Crewe Alexandra.
The game is still underway as we speak and it’s currently 2-0 following a second half strike from Christian Atsu – who was brought on at the break as Steve Bruce fielded an entirely different 11 for the final 45.
Watch Carroll’s goal below, with him rolling back the years in stunning style to give us a 1-0 lead just before half time:
A brilliant piece of juggling and an acrobatic finish to follow after the big man latched onto a cross field pass from Jamaal Lascelles.
Let’s hope there’s more of that to come from the 31-year-old ahead of the upcoming 2020/21 season!
