Cisse: Wonder strike my best ever

3 May 2012 16:18

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse has labelled his remarkable second goal against Chelsea on Wednesday the best he has ever scored.

The 26-year-old struck twice, the first a smart volley on the turn and the second a wonderful half-volley, as Newcastle recorded an important 2-0 win.

Cisse completed his brace with a stunning goal, striking with the outside of his foot from outside the area to see the ball swerve over goalkeeper Petr Cech and into the far top corner.

"It was a wonderful goal. It was the best goal of my career - I was so happy to score it," Cisse told the Shields Gazette.

"When the ball came to me, I was only thinking about scoring. It was an instinctive finish.

"I was also pleased with my first goal. It was important for the team. It was a good evening for me and the team.

"I came to the Premier League to show my quality, and everything is going well. I'm enjoying my football - everything is good on and off the pitch."

Cisse has been hailed the signing of the season by many - despite only joining Newcastle in January - after hitting 13 goals in just 12 appearances.

The Senegal international said he was eager to help Newcastle claim a Champions League spot after they moved to within a point of third-placed Arsenal and stayed level on points with Tottenham.

"It's not going to be easy, but we have confidence, which is important. We believe in each other," Cisse said.

"We hope to play in the Champions League, and we will work hard to achieve that."
