Another player then shouted “Geordie boys!” as hometown heroes Burn and Longstaff entered the room.
The radiant Newcastle team then posed together for a celebratory team photo.
This result saw the Toon climb to the top of a strong group that also included AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund.
Boss Howe was delighted with his team’s performance and said after the game: “I’m so pleased with the players for what they gave tonight.”
“It was a difficult game tactically, PSG tries to play from the back, so we had to unbalance them and unsettle them.”
“We were man-to-man in defense against elite players and there were some moments where they hurt us in what I thought was an even game, but our goals came in good moments.”
“Scoring four goals against PSG in front of our fans made it a very special evening. The atmosphere was very special; I can’t thank our fans enough.”
“In Milan we didn’t quite reach our level at times in the last game, but tonight gives us the belief we need to be successful. But it’s just a small step.”
