What a moment for Newcastle!
And, Papiss Demba Cisse, knowingly or unknowingly, pulled out arguably the most famous celebration ever seen at St James’ Park after scoring a late winner to put Newcastle through past Russian moneybags Anzhi.
In the 94th minute Cisse converted a right wing cross from Sylvain Marveaux to send Newcastle past Anzhi 1-0 on aggregate, after 180 goalless minutes.
Cisse then copied Temuri Ketsbaia’s celebration (see second video below) from when the Georgian scored against Bolton in 1998.
Either Cisse has a firm knowledge of the best ever Newcastle celebrations or he just doesn’t like HTC!
