Magpies book Europa place

Published Add your comment

Haris Vuckic's first senior Newcastle goal was enough to send the Magpies into the group stage of the Europa League.

The 20-year-old Slovenia international struck 21 minutes into the second leg of the club's play-off clash with Greek side Atromitos to seal a 2-1 aggregate victory.

However, although Alan Pardew's men dominated on the night, they were unable to kill the tie off before the final whistle and enjoyed a major escape when goalkeeper Tim Krul appeared to fell Chumbinho in the box two minutes before the break, only to see the Brazilian midfielder pick up a booking for diving.
