Matt Ritchie states that he will be haunted by his "horrendous" foul against Burnley for the rest of his life.
Ritchie has become a social media sensation after scoring a two-meter open goal in Newcastle's 2-1 win at Turf Moor.
The winger, who has made 17 unmarked games, has labeled his lack of "horrible" and "horrible", and knows he will never lose it.
"I think I was celebrating before I photographed," Ritchie said. "It's a fault I'll remember for the rest of my life, but I'll make sure it never happens again.
"I played, I made a good run for the second pole and then when the ball came … unbelievable.
"I still do not know how I missed it.Fortunately it did not pay us off so I can smile about it.There inside it hurts.
"Inside, I'm devastated to lose an easy chance like this. I love scoring goals and I still do not have one this season. Let's be honest, I will not have many chances like that again.
"It will serve me to take a chance like that and not accept it. It was horrible, horrendous! But that's football.
Ritchie's team mates the sledgehammer mercilessly and he knows he will have to endure the TV replays.
"Yes, of course, there will be enough mickey – it's already begun," he said. "I'm sure they'll keep reminding me, I'm sure it will be on television all day, all the worst compilations, the lot, I can not forget that.
"I'm going to move on, though.I'm a strong character.I've had setbacks in my career.I suppose looking at the big picture, this is a small setback.
"I made a mistake, but the goals will come with certainty. I would love to win 30 yards to make up for that. But, in fact, it's not about me scoring, it's about the team's victory. "
Fortunately, Ritchie's lack did not cost Newcastle a lot, which secured his third consecutive game, and he said he should maintain that level.
He said, "I think we're working right now."
