Playing alongside brother Sean in midfielder on his debut, Matty Longstaff scored the winning goal to cap off a memorable day at St. James’ Park.”What an amazing day for the Longstaff family. Well done and congratulations,” Shearer wrote on Twitter.Speaking on Match of the Day, Shearer added: It had energy, it had legs in midfield, it had good shape and dangerous at times on the counter attack but the stars of the show were the two brothers in midfield, Sean and Matty. Wow!”From the first minute Sean got stuck in, won the ball and put Newcastle on the front foot. It’s what they did. It got the crowd up, (it gave them) a little bit of energy that was obviously missing last weekend and it was a sign of things to come (in the first minute).”Matty wasn’t frightened to have a go at all. Look at his brother before he hit the bar saying ‘Go on, have a shot Wor Kid – just hit it!’ And he did! Steve described it as the enthusiasm of him and his brother spraying the ball around – both of them can do that, no problem at all if you give them time on the ball.”Sean’s long ball to Almiron, a lovely weighted pass – he didn’t need to take that touch, just hit it now. But the pass from Sean was fantastic. They linked well together, they understand each other’s game and it was keeping Newcastle going forward.”His goal: what a moment for him, what a moment for his family. What an unbelievable strike and momen for him. It will stay with him for his whole life.”The two of them were fantastic and his Dad should be very, very proud. What an unbelievable day for them and a great day for Newcastle, because they needed that result.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img
