Newcastle United fans have been horrified after Callum Wilson suffered a bizarre injury against Arsenal. Pre-game excitement came to a head when rosters were announced and Wilson – who hasn’t started since Dec. 27 – was on the roster.
He made his long-awaited return from a calf tear against Manchester City last weekend, replacing Chris Wood in the 68th minute with the Magpies 3-0 up. However, it didn’t take long for the number nine to receive another blow when he lost a first-half tooth to the Gunners.
Wearing the captain’s armband, Wilson fought back after receiving treatment, but Toon’s supporters were quick to express their angst on social media. Some took the opportunity to launch a witty joke at the expense of the thirty-something.
@SavMondo: NGL if this happened to my tooth I would have a panic attack and need to be stretched.
@NUFCcook: Callum Wilson can’t take a break, he’s a “wound magnet”. Lost a tooth for the cause now #nufc
@geordiedentist: I had on Callum, I’m on my way…
@alanjonesguitar: I bet Callum Wilson would get a double on his return today? Do you think they will still pay? #nufc
@scottwilson1984: Having time to think back to my previous tweet, I now think Callum Wilson is toothless in attack… #NUFC
@GianfrancoShola: I find it incredibly disconcerting how relaxed Wilson is about his beautiful face #nufc
