Andy Carroll Pulls Off Incredible Piece Of Skill And Somehow Manages To Score In Pre-Season Game

Andy Carroll Pulls Off Incredible Piece Of Skill And Somehow Manages To Score In Pre-Season Game

Andy Carroll has only gone and scored one of the best goals you'll see this year during a pre-season friendly against League One side Crewe Alexandra.

The Newcastle United striker, who failed to find the net in 21 appearances last season, chested the ball down from a diagonal Jamaal Lascelles' pass and performed the most outrageous piece of skill to outwit the opposition.

Carroll took a second touch with his head, flicked the ball over the defender and volleyed home past a helpless Dave Richards in Crewe's net.

It was a moment of magic from the former Liverpool and West Ham forward, who has struggled to make an impression in his second spell at the club.

The 31-year-old spoke about the finish in a post-match interview as Newcastle prepare for the new campaign.

"It's nice to get a goal, it's nice to get a win and hopefully there's many more to come." he said.

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce beamed about Carroll's effort in the pre-season friendly and spoke about his qualities as a striker.

"He was very, very good and scored a goal. It was the Andy Carroll of old, the goal. We know his qualities and the big thing is to stay well and to stay fit.
