"It's special for me," he says. "I've never won a trophy like this and probably it will be my last one, but it's nice to score a goal like this."
Schar's 30-yard rocket clipped the post on its way into the top right corner, breaking the deadlock and sending the Magpies on their way to a 2-0 win at St James' Park.
"After the game I saw the video and you hear when it hit the post," he says. "It's a special sound. These goals always look good.
"You don't think too much about things. You just do what's in your mind, and in these five or 10 seconds everything goes good.
"I saw some videos from the fans, a video from Alan Shearer [celebrating]. It's really nice to see the people going crazy like this.
"I love the Newcastle fans and all the people in the stadium so it's crazy to get a goal like this when you play at home."
