Dan Burn busts out some moves following Newcastle United's Carabao Cup win
| Last updated
Newcastle United made it into the last four in the Carabao Cup and Dan Burn celebrated by dancing in the changing room after the game.
There is no doubt about the improvement in Newcastle since Eddie Howe took over in November 2021, even if they still have the ability to be humbled by a League One side in the FA Cup, as Sheffield Wednesday did to them on the weekend.
That loss was a blow to their chances of ending their hunt for a first piece of major silverware since winning the FA Cup in 1955.
However, they still have a chance of winning the Carabao Cup, and made it into the final four on Tuesday night, with a win over Leicester City.
Howe's side were better than their opponents, who have a much better recent history of winning trophies, but they were left frustrated for long periods of the game.
They finally broke the deadlock on the hour mark when Burn rampaged into the Leicester box, beat two men with his long stride and placed the ball beautifully into the bottom corner.
There were huge scenes for the Newcastle fan who scored his first goal for the club in his 37th appearance since joining last January.
After the match, Sky Sports' cameras were in the team dressing room to see the former Brighton defender bust out a dance in front of all his teammates.

After the dance, Howe said that he was just trying to get some words from the 30-year-old, saying, "I was actually asking him to speak and he stood up and danced.
"But when someone as popular as him has a moment like that I think it’s important we all share it with him.
"He moves quite well for a big man, doesn’t he?!"
For his part, Burn revealed that it's not the first time that he's busted out similar moves, but warned that last time it didn't work out so well.
"Last time I did a dance like that, I didn't score for two years. So I hope it is not going to be the same again," he told Sky Sports.
After going ahead, Joelinton doubled his side's lead 12 minutes later and it was pretty smooth sailing for them from there, as they made it into a semi final of a major competition for the first time since 2005.
Howe's side could face Manchester United in the final four, after Erik ten Hag's beat League One's Charlton Athletic at Old Trafford.
Antony opened the scoring in the first half, with an absolute peach of a strike, but they struggled after that and needed two late goals from substitute Marcus Rashford to complete the win.
The two United's will be joined by either Manchester City or Southampton, and Nottingham Forest or Wolves, with those two quarters happening on Wednesday.
