Keegan's Lucky Shirt

Keegan's Lucky Shirt

He believes wearing the number seven shirt could change his fortune in front of goal after scoring against.

Jacke Milburn himself started off with that shirt, and Tommy Walker had it during the cup campaigns of the 1950s. Bryan Robson, Rob Lee and Kevin Keegan ... and now Luque.

For the Spaniard, who also scored in his last game at St James' Park, Shearer's testimonial, there is the hope that his change of shirt will bring about a change of fortune.

Luque: 'I am very happy to have scored the goal - maybe the new shirt will bring me some luck. Last season, the number 20 was not good for me. I got the injury in my second game, and it was a tough season.

'Now I have the number seven shirt, hopefully things will be better for me now.

'Lillestrom are well into their season, so their fitness was always going to better than ours. We knew that before the game, but we are happy because we got stronger as the game went on.

'We were disappointed at half-time because they were stronger than us, but in the second half we picked it up and after we scored the equaliser, we always wanted to go on and win the tie.

'A 1-1 draw is not bad for us. Of course, it would have been nice to win, but we will go to Norway full of confidence and we know what we have to do. We know how important the game is, because it is the ambition of every one of us to get the club into Europe again in the new season.'

If Luque avoids any injury's he could be a vital part of our season - we know he's good but he just has to prove it to us.
