Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Tim Krul injury, Georginio Wijnaldum goal

Tim Krul

Newcastle United had a mixed night as the Netherlands beat Kazakhstan 2-1.

The Netherlands kept their hopes of qualifying for Euro 2016 alive with a vital 2-1 victory away in Kazakhstan earlier this evening.

Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Wesley Sneijder but Danny Blind's men in to a 2-0 lead, before Islambek Kuat pulled back a late consolation for Kazakhstan.

The result means that the Netherlands can still qualify for Euro 2016 in France next summer, but they need a slip-up from third placed Turkey.

Whilst tonight's win gave Blind and the Netherlands a great night, it's been more of a mixed evening for Newcastle United and their supporters.

Midfielder Wijnaldum opened the scoring, which should please Magpies boss Steve McClaren ahead of the summer signing's return to Tyneside.

However, there was also bad news for Newcastle, as goalkeeper Tim Krul was taken off with a serious knee injury, meaning he could miss playing time for McClaren - and whilst fans want Karl Darlow to be given a chance, the former Nottingham Forest man is also injured, giving the Magpies something of a goalkeeping crisis.

Here are some of the reactions from Newcastle fans after Krul's injury and Wijnaldum's goal against Kazakhstan tonight...
