- Newcastle keep clean sheet in first Champions League game
- Pope made six saves in first 20 minutes against Milan
Eddie Howe acknowledged his debt to Nick Pope after the goalkeeper made a string of outstanding saves to earn Newcastle a precious point in their opening Champions League game against Milan at San Siro.
Pope has recently been out of sorts and dropped by England but he timed his return to form to coincide with his side’s first game in Europe’s showpiece competition since 2003. He made six vital saves in the first 20 minutes.
