Forgotten ex-Mag scores Sunday night screamer after replacing NUFC’s £15m man – Video

Remember Shane Ferguson? Well, the forgotten former Mag scored arguably the goal of the international break last night on a landmark occasion for the Northern Irishman.

On his 50th appearance for his country, he smashed home a 30-yard screamer to secure a 1-0 win over Estonia – just minutes after replacing current Toon wing-back Jamal Lewis.

Remembered as a baby-faced youngster who could play out wide or at left-back, it’s hard to believe he is now 30, with him currently playing for League One side Rotherham after his five-year stint at Millwall came to an end this summer.

Ferguson played just 32 times for Newcastle between 2009 and 2016, failing to score in that time – which is hard to believe when you see strikes like this!

What a hit!

What’s more, there’s talk in Northern Ireland that Ferguson could now replace Jamal Lewis for their World Cup Qualifier clash with Switzerland on Wednesday night.

Should this happen, it’s been a poor start to the new season for our £15m man, with him behind Matt Ritchie in the NUFC pecking order and at risk of losing his place at international level, too.
