Newcastle United’s 3-0 victory over Sheffield United in the English Premier League on Sunday, June 21, was all a 93-year-old nanny needed to dance as she was delighted her favourite team got back to winning ways.
Although there were no fans inside the stadium as the game was played behind closed-doors inside the St James’ Park, club supporters jumped for joy across the world as they enjoyed the victory.
It was the first game for Steve Bruce’s men upon return of the Premier League which was earlier suspended since mid-March due to the pandemic.
