Callum Wilson, signed on Monday from the relegated Bournemouth for 22 million euros, began to give Newcastle revenue today automatically with the goal that on his debut set the victory against West Ham at the London Stadium (0-2) in the first day of the Premier League.
Wilson opened the scoring in the 56th minute by anticipating Lukasz Fabianski at the first post after a header from Irish midfielder Jeff Hendrick, who prolonged an initially rejected cross with which Madrid winger Javier Manquillo finished off a great personal action on the right wing .
Hendrick sentences with a whiplash by the square
Already in the last moments Hendrick himself, another of Newcastle’s reinforcements when he arrived free from Burnley, sentenced when he received an assistance from the Argentine Miguel Almirón (82 ‘) and completed his great performance in his debut with the’ magpies’ shirt with a whiplash by the square.
The triumph of Steve Bruce’s team was deserved and it seems to have been successful in its signings as left-back Jamal Lewis, from the also relegated Norwich, also stood out.
Two West Ham posts in the first half
David Moyes’ West Ham had their options in the first half with two shots to the post, first in a header by Angelo Ogbonna after a free kick (14 ‘) and later in a shot by Castellón-native Pablo Fornals (34’). But it’s also true that Wilson, Andy Carroll and Jonjo Shelvey were also close to scoring before the break.
