A lot of Newcastle United fans were left in awe of a video showing Allan Saint-Maximin’s winner on Tuesday night.

After Newcastle had overcome Oxford United 3-2 to seal a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup, the club released a video of the Frenchman’s winner without the commentary.

Was Saint-Maximin Newcastle's best player?

Yes, he was fantastic

Yes, he was fantastic

No, great goal but didn't play that well

That means you can hear the ball thumping the back of the net, and then the away end erupting with joy.

This piece of footage has gone down brilliantly with these Toon fans.

What do we think?

The winner by Saint-Maximin was worthy of winning any game of football as he carried the ball to the edge of the box, jinked inside past two men, and unleashed a rocket that flew into the far corner giving Simon Eastwood no chance in goal.

The 22-year-old then headed straight over to the jubilant away end to celebrate with the fans who had made the long trip down.

The Toon made hard work of it, but they are through to the fifth round for the first time since Mike Ashley took over, and they now face a trip to The Hawthorns to keep their cup run alive.
