In the last winter market, Newcastle surprised by signing Bruno Guimaraes, the talented midfielder who shone at Olympique Lyon. The crisis that the English club was going through gave signs that the Brazilian midfielder was going to start immediately, but coach Eddie Howe took it easy and gave him a run little by little.
Finally, this Thursday, the ‘Magpies’ coach opted to place his talented figure from the start, for the first time in the Premier League. The context was complicated, since the institution visited Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium, for the rescheduled date 21 of the league championship.
Ever since he took the field, Bruno Guimaraes was very mobile and tried to participate in the construction of the game, taking advantage of his good handling of the ball. The Brazilian’s good performance would be rewarded in the second half, when he scored Newcastle’s winning goal (Stuart Armstrong scored for Soton and Chris Wood partially equalised).
It all happened when the clock was approaching 52 minutes and ‘The Magpies’ had a favorable corner kick. The center went directly to the location of Dan Burn, one of the tallest players on the team, although he did not shoot towards the goal, but rather he sought to enable a teammate with a header.
The central assist went to Bruno Guimaraes, who made a strange move to trick his marker: he went ahead and finished off with a heel. The definition was surprising for everyone, especially for the goalkeeper Fraser Forster, and caused delirium among the fans. It was an impressive luxury, no less than in his first start and to give his club a 2-1 win.
The 24-year-old Brazilian received many compliments for his vital participation and expressed his emotion on social networks: “Dream premiere. Happy to be living this special moment in my career. Dreams are made to be fulfilled. God is giant!”. Now, the midfielder’s mission will be to stay in the starting eleven.
How is Newcastle doing in the Premier League?
Newcastle’s time of relegation concern has been diminishing as the games progressed. Under the command of Eddie Howe, the team has gone nine games in a row without losing (three draws and six wins) and is in box number 14, with 31 points, 10 above Burnley, which marks the passage zone to second division.
