The 2022/23 Premier League season is barely one day old and already we’ve got drama enough to fill a season although the goals have been slow coming so far. That includes St James Park in a clash between Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest but that was until Fabian Schar stepped up.

After a cagey and completely Newcastle United dominated first-half, the Magpies struggled to break the deadlock with Premier League new-boys Nottingham Forest standing strong and tall. Somehow, despite the fact that they faced nearly 14 shots in the first half, Steve Cooper’s side did well to keep Eddie Howe’s side at bay with Dean Henderson making not one or two but six impressive saves.

But less than thirteen minutes into the second half and after Newcastle cult hero Allan Saint-Maximin missed a glorious chance to score, up stepped Fabian Schar. The Switzerland international collected the ball on the far right, strode forward with oodles of confidence and absolutely unleashed a thunderbolt from no less than 25 yards out. It left Dean Henderson with no chance at saving things especially as the ball swerved, moved and skidded across the sky, and into the net.

For a mere moment, St James Park was stunned and then as Schar sprinted towards the fans to celebrate, they exploded with joy and celebration having only just realised what their center-back, who has only scored ten league goals before this one. He can certainly hit them..
