Newcastle United fans react on Twitter as Facundo Ferrerya nets Europa League goal

FC Shakhtar Donetsk Bench

He was Newcastle United's mystery man last season, but Facundo Ferrerya proved his worth for Shakhtar Donetsk last night.

Newcastle United are having one of those seasons.

Nothing can go right on the pitch, and off it, it must seem as though the world is against them right now.

For proof of this look no further than last night's Europa League match between Schalke and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Remember Facundo Ferrerya? It would be easy to forget him. The Argentine striker was signed on loan from Shakhtar last season but did not make a single appearance.

He spent part of it out injured but when he was fit, he was consigned to playing in under-21 games.

Well this season has been a lot better for him, playing regularly for Shakhtar, and last night he really made a difference.

Yes he actually scored. Here is Shakhtar Donetsk making sure everybody knew about it.

Newcastle United fans, with their own side floundering in a Premier League relegation battle, did not know whether to laugh or cry.

The attacker helped Shakhtar to a 3-0 win, sending them into the Europa League last 16.

Here is a look at how Newcastle supporters reacted on Twitter to his goal...
