After nearly a full calendar year in England, Miguel Almiron has finally found the scoresheet for Newcastle United. The former Atlanta United attacker has had his struggles making a statistical impact on Tyneside since his arrival in January. By all accounts he’s been influential with his play, the goals and assists just haven’t come.
The first assist came a few weeks ago and now the elusive goal has finally arrived. And it was a very important one, giving the Magpies a lead late in their match against Crystal Palace. Here’s a look at his memorable moment:

Of course it had to come with his left foot. We saw him bang in so many lovely goals with that lethal left in a Five Stripes kit. It’s great to see him get to enjoy the moment he’s been waiting so long for.
