A double by Callum Wilson gave the visitors the victory. Discreet presentation of the Colombian team.
With a double from striker Callum Wilson, Newcastle Everton surprised Colombians Yerry Mina and James Rodríguez and defeated them 2-0 at Goodison Park in a match on date 20 of the English Premier League.
The result and the great protagonist of the game in the first round were repeated, with Wilson scoring the goals of Newcastle’s victory at home. Thus, the team became Everton’s black beast in the tournament, winning both matches, scoring four goals and not allowing any.

In the first part there were few emotions. The teams alternated the initiative and almost at the end only two clear target options were presented. The first was a header from Callum Wilson that took goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and the second was a shot from James Rodríguez that was rejected by goalkeeper Karl Darlow.
Everton was more determined on the complement, but it was his rival who created danger. In a counterattack, Callum Wilson lost a very clear opportunity in which he went hand in hand with Pickford. And the Colombian team was watered down and losing momentum, ahead of a well-closed visiting defense.

Until after 72 minutes the first goal from Newcastle arrived. On a corner kick, as had happened in the first phase, Callum Wilson won, unmarked, at the front and with an impeccable header he sent the ball to the back of the net.
Everton tried to respond, but had no arguments for a draw. As on a few occasions, James Rodríguez was inaccurate and blamed several blows for being dealt in the first stage. He was helpless and desperate to the point that he was reprimanded for an offense he had committed against Paraguayan Miguel Almirón.

Callum Wilson failed again for a clear option, but then closed the score. Already in stoppage time, he took advantage of a counterattack and defined strongly for Pickford’s departure for the 2-0 final, Newcastle’s first win in 2021. Yerry Mina had no responsibility for the goals. In the first, his team scored in the zone and in the second, he was in the rival territory when the game started.
With the defeat, Everton stayed at 33 points and moved away from the European Cup positions. Newcastle, on the other hand, reached 22 points and climbed to box 16, a reprieve as it is dogged by relegation.
