Video: Arsenal's Joel Campbell scores winner for Costa Rica

Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell showed why Newcastle are interested in signing him with an international winner.

Joel Campbell scored the winner for Costa Rica in their international friendly win away to USA.

The Arsenal striker's second half winner was enough to beat Jurgen Klinsmann's side 1-0, firing home a clinical finish from 12 yards out.

The forward has struggled to make a mark for Arsenal this season, but remains a regular in his national team.

The Chronicle reported just earlier this week that Premier League strugglers Newcastle United are interested in a loan move for Campbell.

With his path to first team football blocked at The Emirates by the likes of Theo Walcott, a move away may turn out to be Campbell's best bet, and his international strike will have done his chances of earning a switch no harm.

The trouble for Campbell is he has been out on loan so many times already, with his Arsenal chances not improved. Lorient, Real Betis, Olympiakos and Villarreal represent the four different clubs in separate countries where he has featured so far.

Newcastle could be different, for they could present Campbell with a chance to play Premier League football, giving him a greater chance of catching manager Arsene Wenger's attention and showing him he could do a job for the Gunners.
