Pic Special: Pacos 1 Newcastle 1

Shola Ameobi's second half goal earned ten-man Newcastle United a 1-1 draw in a bad-tempered friendly away at Pacos de Ferreira on Tuesday night.

The big front man notched his second goal in as many matches to cancel out Caetano's early opener for the Portuguese hosts.

But it was a double sending-off which was the game's main talking point, as Caetano and Magpies captain Fabricio Coloccini both received their marching orders for a first-half clash.

United had numerous chances to grab the victory, with substitute Haris Vuckic going closest late on as he struck the post.
