Antonio can't believe what he saw from Newcastle player against Fulham

West Ham United striker Michail Antonio has teased Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson’s for his missed chance against Fulham.

Speaking on the Footballer’s Football Podcast, Antonio was teasing his forward counterpart.

Wilson’s side went on to win the match 4-1, but Antonio couldn’t miss an opportunity to tease his co-host.

The chance in question comes in the opening moments of the match.

Kieran Trippier takes a free-kick from his own half with Fulham playing a very high line.

Fulham defender Tim Ream wins the initial header, but the ball falls to Dan Burn who hits a venomous volley.

Bernd Leno’s save falls right to the feet of Wilson, who spoons his luck wide of the right-hand post.

“We can’t move past that miss, bro. You tried to explain it, but we can’t move past it!” Antonio said.

“Because bro, that’s bad mate! You have completely spooned that to the right, when the goal is all in front of you.

“You are a finisher!”

Antonio teases Wilson about miss

In the end, the £20m Newcastle striker made amends for his miss, and opened the scoring.

It would have been impossible to miss the chance he did take, tapping in Joe Willock’s header on the line.

Wilson finally returned to Newcastle’s starting line-up after missing four matches due to a hamstring injury.

The 30-year-old is clearly happy at Newcastle, despite the arrival of record signing Alexander Isak.

In a previous Footballer’s Football podcast, Wilson said he would be happy to retire at St. James’ Park.

Alan Shearer believes that Howe will continue to try to manage his minutes due to his injury record.

He was substituted just after the hour mark at the weekend, although the game was won by then.

Wilson will be hoping to put away more of his chances against Brentford, otherwise Antonio will be teasing him again next week.
