The Premier League’s success on US shores continued as Newcastle became the latest side to inflict defeat on MLS opponents.

Following on from wins by Manchester United and Everton, goals from Shola Ameobi, Fabricio Coloccini and Haris Vuckic saw Newcastle secure a 3-0 win over the Columbus Crew on Tuesday night.

Ameobi opened the scoring in the ninth minute, pouncing on a defensive to slot the ball past Andy Gruenebaum.

Gruenebaum was later sent off for handling the ball outside the box on the stroke of half-time and Newcastle took advantage in the second half adding to their tally through Coloccini and Vuckic.
