MAR 30, 2024 LISTEN

In a lively match at St James' Park, Mohammed Kudus' goal for West Ham United sparked a quirky moment as he attempted to involve a ball boy in his celebration.

Kudus, who netted just before halftime, gestured towards the young attendant, hoping to use his stool for the celebration.

However, the Newcastle ballboy declined, leaving Kudus to improvise by sitting on the nearby advertising board.

The goal itself was not without controversy, as it came after a quick free-kick by West Ham, taken while Fabian Schar received treatment for an injury.

Jarrod Bowen capitalized on the opportunity, slipping past the Newcastle defense to set up the goal.

Despite Alexander Isak's early penalty giving Newcastle the lead, West Ham turned the tide with goals from Michail Antonio and Kudus.

Jarrod Bowen extended their lead in the second half, but Newcastle fought back fiercely. Isak converted another penalty, while Harvey Barnes found the net to level the score.

In a dramatic finale, Barnes scored his second of the match in the 90th minute, securing a thrilling 4-3 victory for Newcastle United.

Mohammed Kudus' contribution highlighted his impressive season statistics, with seven goals and four assists in 25 Premier League appearances.
