Video: Man United star Jesse Lingard scores ice-cold penalty to offer short-lived hope for West Ham

Posted by

In the 76th minute of this afternoon’s thrilling Premier League encounter between Newcastle and West Ham, the East London outfit won themselves a penalty just minutes after Issa Diop scored.

Vladimir Coufal floated in a cross from the right flank, it was heading towards compatriot Tomas Soucek when Ciaran Clark led with his forearm and struck the ball.

Kevin Friend used the pitch-side VAR monitor to review the decision, and made the correct decision in awarding a spot-kick.

Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard stepped up and looked ice-cold as he tucked the ball into the back of the net off the left post, Martin Dubravka went the right way but couldn’t stop this.
