The Newcastle United Blog | Newcastle cruise to win 3-0 over 1860 Munich
Eddie Howe made just one substitution after a goalless first half against 1860 Munich. Svet Botman replaced Jamaal Lascelles.
Newcastle had two early chances. In the first minute, Anderson burst into the area on the left. He handed the ball to Wilson, whose shot went over the bar. In the 50th minute, Murphy pushed into the box on the right but his cross pass was smothered by the Munich keeper.
In the 54th minute, Joe Willock broke the deadlock. It was a great decision by the guys. Murphy found Shelvey who had broken into the box. The midfielder handed the ball to Willock, who slid it into the top of the net with his left foot to make it 1-0.
At 60 minutes, the Cavalry arrived as Howe made ten changes. Newcastle were kind enough to tweet the lineup for the final 30 minutes.
60′ Ten more changes for the Magpies and that’s how we line up for the rest of today’s game!
Let’s go, guys! ?

It was 2-0 minutes later. Sean Longstaff was shot in the right flank. The free kick was played to Bruno who found the elder Longstaff in the box at a similar spot to Willock’s goal. Sean planted the ball in the net with his right foot.
In the 75th minute, Newcastle got a third goal from midfield. Bruno collected the ball from deep and passed it to Wood in the box. The striker sent the ball back to Bruno who brought it home to make it 3-0.
It was a decent run for the guys who took a while to grow into the game. That’s to be expected so early in the pre-season. Next up is Mainz on Monday as the Austrian journey begins to wind down.
