Allan Saint-Maximin Fooled The Cameraman As Well As Burnley Defence With Glorious Chop

Allan Saint-Maximin's deft chop not only fooled James Tarkowski but also the cameraman at Turf Moor.

The Frenchman came produced a Man of the Match performance off the bench to inspire Newcastle to a 2-1 win over Burnley.

He set up Jacob Murphy's equaliser just two minutes after entering the fray and then completed the turnaround with an outrageous solo goal from his own half in the 64th minute.


The check inside from the edge of the box sent Tarkowski to the shops but it also sold the camera operator, who panned briefly before capturing the moment Saint-Maximin found the net with his left foot.

Footage was seamless on Sky Sports but on Optus Sport, the goal is made even better by the cameraman getting duped.


The inspired substitution and masterclass from the former Nice man, a nailed-on future "streets will never forget" footballer, gave Steve Bruce's side a massive win at the bottom of the table.

The Magpies have an incredible tough run of fixtures in the final stretch of the season, with games West Ham, Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester City and Manchester City before a final day clash with Fulham in what could effectively be a relegation play-off depending on results between now and then.
