A few Newcastle United fans may have caught Poland versus Slovakia at Euro 2020 yesterday.
Perhaps the intention was to see how Martin Dubravka would get on.
The 32-year-old was starting for the 25th time for his country, and he would end up on the winning side.
Slovakia ran out 2-1 winners against the odds, and have now given themselves a decent chance of getting out of their group.
As well as current Magpies star Dubravka being on show, there was also a former Newcastle player featuring.
Ľubomír Šatka started at centre-half, and produced a really solid performance.
Šatka was on the books of Newcastle from 2012-2017, but only ever made one first-team appearance – a cameo against Leicester City in the FA Cup in 2015.
He was highly rated, with former manager Alan Pardew saying of him (Shields Gazette): “Lubo is, for me, a player beyond his years – he’s very calm.
“If you were going to look at a young Coloccini, you’ve got to say that’s Lubo.
“He’s so level-headed, and technically good. He’s got a great chance for us. We’ve really got our fingers crossed for him.”
These days, Šatka plays his football with Lech Poznan and is a regular for his country.
It was great to see him looking so assured last night, with him and Milan Skriniar keeping Robert Lewandowski very quiet – which is no easy task for anyone..
He completed 47/49 (96%) of his passes according to Sofascore, and won 4/6 of the duels he contested. He also made four clearances and four interceptions.
