Riviere off the mark for Magpies

first_img Press Association The Magpies scored three times in the space of 14 first-half minutes as Siem de Jong took full advantage of goalkeeper Ivan Necevski’s 19th-minute error before Riviere and then defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa struck. Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot had only one save to make to deny Corey Gameiro after the break, and substitute Adam Armstrong rounded off the scoring seven minutes from time. The striker, a £5million summer signing from Monaco, needed just 26 minutes to open his account with the Magpies taking the game by the scruff of the neck. Before kick-off, manager Alan Pardew and captain Fabricio Coloccini laid wreaths on the seats which would have been occupied by fans John Alder and Liam Sweeney who died in the Malaysia Airlines crash last week while en route to New Zealand. center_img Emmanuel Riviere marked his debut with a goal as Newcastle cruised to a 4-0 victory over Sydney FC in Dunedin. last_img read more
