NUFC star at fault for 3 goals & sees red in 90th minute in Tuesday night horror show – Video

His country may have come away with a very decent point from a six-goal thriller in Germany, but Newcastle United centre-back Fabian Schar had a bit of a stinker in the UEFA Nations League last night.

Not only did he see red in the 90th minute for a second bookable offence, he’s been slated by Swiss fans on social media after being arguably at fault for all three of Germany’s goals.

As you can see for yourself below, he got caught on the ball for Germany’s first (1:20), gifted Havertz a goal via a mishit pass (2:49), was beaten too easily by Werner (3:45) in the build up to their third and was then sent off for a cynical trip on Draxler (4:14) with just 30 seconds of the game remaining:

Three starts over the past week against Croatia, Spain and Germany will do him the world of good after no pre-season and several months out with a shoulder injury, but this really was a night to forget for the centre-back.

He looked uninterested, sloppy and totally out of sorts during Project Restart and was tipped to leave over the summer, however he’s still on Tyneside and actually put in a very solid display against Burnley on his first game back in that 3-1 win the weekend before last.

Let’s hope we see more of that Fabian Schar in the weeks to come – not the one who made error after error in last night’s 3-3 draw with Germany!

  1. So you say he was at fault for three goals when every other report I read said he was at fault for one.

    There’s no ” arguably”. It was one.

    Do we have a thing against Schar, Olly?

    I’d recommend you watch the match highlights again included in the article.

    The first one he tries to be too clever and loss the ball, the second he passes it straight to Havertz (who scores) and the third he’s beaten far too easily by Werner.

    I’ve got absolutely nothing against Schar and think he’s one of our best players when he wants to be, but there’s no denying he’s at fault for all the goals here.
