Xabi Alonso is celebrating his 39th birthday today and a clip of his incredible goal against Newcastle for Liverpool has been posted on Twitter.
One of his most memorable moments in a Liverpool shirt, however, was against Newcastle in the Premier League back in 2006. The Spanish midfielder won the ball inside his own half and then pinged the ball 70 yards to lob the goalkeeper after spotting Steve Harper off his line in the Newcastle box.
Amazon Prime shared the clip on Twitter, celebrating his birthday by reliving a glorious goal from his time at Anfield.
Happy birthday to one of the best to ever do it in a Liverpool shirt 😍 @XabiAlonso #LFC
