Ghana's No. 1

Atsu cameos in Newcastle's Carabao Cup victory over Blackburn Rovers

Published on: 16 September 2020

Ghana winger Christian Atsu climbed off the bench to help Newcastle United progress to the third round of the Carabao Cup with victory over Blackburn Rovers. 

The out-of-favour attacker replaced Matt Richie in the 79th minute as the Magpies progressed with a 1-0 win at the Saint James Park.

New signing Ryan Fraser scored on his debut for the club to secure the victory for the Premier League outfit. 

Fraser latched on to a clever Miguel Almiron through ball and slotted home midway through the first half.

Blackburn Rovers dominated possession throughout but lacked the cutting edge to prise open a stubborn Newcastle defence.

Newcastle United will next face Morecambe in the third round next week.
