After Newcastle United favourite Allan Saint-Maximin displayed his reaction on Twitter to the Magpies’ heroic 2-2 draw at Everton on Tuesday evening, supporters hailed the winger’s assumed excitement thanks to defender Florian Lejeune’s dramatic brace in added time.
Strikes from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Moise Kean in either half originally gave Newcastle a mountain to climb, with Steve Bruce’s side barely threatening to cut the deficit until the final few minutes – eventually resulting in the French centre-back burying a sublime overhead kick before he bundled home the unlikely leveller just a few moments later.
Euphoria in the Magpies away end at Goodison Park immediately followed, meanwhile Saint-Maximin displayed his excitement on Twitter with a clip of a man simply screaming ‘Oh my God!’.
The former Nice winger, when playing for Newcastle, stands out as a key creative influence – completing 4.2 dribbles per game and mounting 1.5 efforts on average, as per WhoScored.com. Fellow winger Christian Atsu hasn’t been able to replicate that kind of form in his absence, averaging just 0.9 dribbles and 0.3 efforts per game by comparison.
However, even though he cannot help them on the pitch right now due to recovery from an injury, his celebrations off the pitch have warranted even more praise – here’s how supporters reacted on Twitter.
Hahahahahahaha genius 😂😂😂😂😂😂
