This Friday Rodrigo Vilca had perhaps his best presentation wearing the shirt of Newcastle United Sub 23. The Peruvian midfielder was one of the figures in the triumph (3-2) against Stoke City on date 10 of the Premier League 2.
The former Deportivo Municipal registered a goal and an assist. It was their first score with the ‘Urracas’ youth team, which left the bottom of the standings and climbed to the ninth box, where they are three points behind.
After his great day, the player born in Callao manifested himself through his social networks. “Happy for my first goal”the 21-year-old soccer player wrote on his Twitter account, showing his emotion.
The first holy cry
At 48 minutes, a game change from Newcastle’s own field fell at the feet of Stanley Flaherty from the right sector. The English midfielder tried to make a diagonal and found Rodrigo Vilca, who entered without a mark on the edge of the rival area.
Without much thought, he controlled his left and settled on his more comfortable leg to deliver a right corner, enough to beat goalkeeper Robbie Hemfrey. What came later was the respective celebration, where each of his colleagues came to congratulate him.
Rodrigo Vilca arrived in England at the beginning of October, after Newcastle United will pay for him a figure that bordered the 280 thousand euros, becoming the first player sold by ‘Muni’ to a Premier League team.
