Striker scores twice to beat defending champions West Ham after extra-time in last-16 tie

Sammy Ameobi was the hero for Newcastle United as he struck twice, including the winner in extra-time, in a 3-2 win that knocked out defending champions West Ham United from the Premier League Cup.

After the two sides shared a 0-0 draw at St James' Park on Monday, Ashley Fletcher’s penalty gave the visitors a half-time lead at the same venue.

Luke Charman equalised for Newcastle, only for Declan Rice to restore West Ham’s lead.

Ameobi struck a superb late goal to force extra-time, before getting the winner to seal a quarter-final place.
