Atsu scores in Newcastle United pre-season win

Ghana winger, Christain Atsu scored in Newcastle United 2-0 win over St Patrick’s Athletic at Richmond Park as they kicked off pre-season in Dublin.

Sean Longstaff cracked home the opener for United as their blend of youth and experience edged the first period against St Patrick’s Athletic.

But Joselu – who was handed a chance up front – spurned some chances as he looked to stamp his authority on the striker situation with Rafa Benitez struggling to sign the replacements he wants.

It was a different side in the second half and Magpies extended their lead with Atsu scoring a penalty before United missed a host of chances.
