JUST IN : Nick Pope sends hilarious IG message to his teammate after his goal against PSG

Newcastle United fans will remember October 4th, 2022 for a long time. It was the night that local heroes like Sean Longstaff helped Newcastle defeat PSG 4-1 in the Champions League.

The return of Champions League football to the North East for the first time in 20 years was expected to be a magnificent night inside St James’ Park.

The atmosphere inside the stadium before kickoff was unlike anything I’d ever witnessed – and then the game began.

Newcastle pulled it off. They actually carried it out. And they did it with a group of Geordies fulfilling every fan’s fantasy.

On a night where Kylian Mbappe was expected to steal the show, he was overshadowed by a 25-year-old from Tyneside.

Sean Longstaff was incredible against PSG
Sean Longstaff was named in Eddie Howe’s starting XI, and that is exactly where he belongs. He should be the first name on the teamsheet, and he proved why on Wednesday night.

The academy graduate produced an outrageously good display, showing no sign of nerves up against a team as good as PSG.

Longstaff was spectacular, and that was even before he found the net.
A clever run allowed Kieran Trippier to pick him out inside the box, and the midfielder made sure he took his shot early. That clearly took Gianluigi Donnarumma by surprise, as Longstaff’s effort went underneath him to send St James’ Park wild.

Nick Pope sends hilarious message to Longstaff after Newcastle’s Champions League win
Following an amazing night on Tyneside, Longstaff took to his official Instagram account to reflect on the 4-1 victory over PSG.

He wrote: “A night we’ll never forget! Champions league football is back at St James park!”

His post prompted replies from various Newcastle players. Jacob Murphy wrote ‘so proud of you bro’, while Bruno Guimaraes added ‘one of us’.

But the best reply came from Nick Pope.

He wrote: “Tommy is proud, so am I.”

Tommy is the name of Longstaff’s cat, who just celebrated its first birthday. That was the source of all the meowing following Sheffield United’s victory.

After such an emotional night for Longstaff, you can count on Pope to deliver such a message! It’s amusing from the Toon goalie, but he quickly reminded Longstaff that he is happy of him.

Everybody is. It was a magical night, made even more so by Longstaff and Dan Burn notching goals.
