Cisse happy with match-winner

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse said he was "happy" after scoring a dramatic late winner during last night's Europa League victory over Anzhi Makhachkala.

With the tie at 0-0 and poised for extra-time, the Senegalese forward headed home Sylvain Marveaux's cross deep into injury time to send the St James' Park crowd into raptures. The goal proved to be the last kick of the ball as the final whistle was blown soon after.

Though his interpreter and team-mate Cheick Tiote, Cisse said: "I'm happy because I scored a really good goal and we won the game."
