Fabian Schar seems to become more impressive by the day to Newcastle United supporters.
On the 31st August, he scored the equaliser against Watford with a clinical left-footed half-volley in the box, as shown in Sky Sports Football’s highlights video on YouTube.
That was then followed up by his goal in Switzerland’s 1-1 draw against the Republic of Ireland, which started off with his pass and intelligent run, ending with a pinpoint shot that went into the bottom corner.
As if that wasn’t enough, on Sunday, he played a superb cross into the box for Admir Mehmedi to score in the 4-0 win against Gibraltar:

Two goals and an assist in the last eight days for the centre-back. pic.twitter.com/VbmPtdKW58

With Newcastle only having scored thrice in their first four Premier League games, as per Transfermarkt, they could do with goals coming from all over the pitch, so this is highly encouraging coming from their centre-back.
Some fans are beginning to state that they feel the 27 y/o should be played higher up the pitch, due to his technical ability going forward.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the assist, including posts from impressed Newcastle fans, can be seen below:

No.10 shirt and a free role behind Joelinton. Now.

Some of the passes Fabian Schar is playing
Could have had 2/3 assists today.
My favourite centre back in Europe to watch we’re lucky to have such a great ball playing centre back.
