Fans were stunned by Jacob Murphy’s “cameo” as Star was substituted just half an hour after coming on as a substitute in the Carabao Cup semifinals
FOOTBALL fans were stunned by Jacob Murphy’s “cameo” in the Carabao Cup semifinals.
The 27-year-old came on as a 61st-minute substitute for Newcastle in the 2-1 win over Southampton that sent the Magpies to Wembley.
But bizarrely, Murphy didn’t see the rest of the game on the court.
He was substituted on by Newcastle boss Eddie Howe THE END in the 90th minute for 20-year-old midfielder Elliot Anderson.
This meant Murphy had only played 29 minutes, with the decision to dismiss him seemingly only to tick more seconds on the clock.
Not that Murphy seemed to mind when fans claimed he smiled as he left the pitch after helping his side to a first Wembley final in 24 years.
Cameras are said to have then switched to Southampton ace Duje Caleta-Car on the bench, who cheekily waved Murphy aside in last week’s first leg after the Saints man was shown a red card.
Caleta-Car was suspended for Southampton’s game at the weekend but returned to the bench for the Carabao Cup clash.
Murphy’s “cameo” left some stunned, while other Toon followers on social media once again praised Murphy for his “s***housery” as he smiled while being substituted after being substituted on earlier in the game.
One wrote on Twitter: “That Jacob Murphy gig there.”

A third quipped: “Ahahahaha Jacob Murphy comes on in the second half and goes out in the second half.”
A fourth joked: “Jacob Murphy deserves a new contract and kudos just for the vibe and s***housery he brings.”
And another added: “Jacob Murphy laughing and smiling after going into hiding is too s***housery and then Sky put the camera on Caleta-Car.”
