VIDEO: Newcastle’s Dubravka narrowly avoids being hit from chunk of ice falling from Wembley roof

Newcastle United keeper Martin Dubravka was lucky not to have been hit from a large chunk of ice falling from the roof of Wembley Stadium.

The Magpies shot stopper was preparing for the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur, but noticed ice falling from the high up roof and onto the pitch as well as the stands.

Whilst doing so, he narrowly avoided being hit by one that was rocketing to towards him.

Sky Sports captured the moment, watch the video for yourself below…

When postponing a football fixture due to the snow, usually it’s the surrounding areas as well as the pitch quality that is taken into account, however if you’re in the stands and the end of the roof is hovering above where you’re sitting or standing, you will have to be careful or at least keep it in mind. Eek.

Onto the match and the first half between Tottenham (came back from 1-0 to beat Watford 2-1 in midweek) and Newcastle (produced a stunning win over Manchester City) saw no goals.

Spurs dominated in most areas and in the match stats, but you can’t say the Magpies haven’t been dangerous at times.

The second half was more of the same, however Newcastle came closest to scoring the opener as Salomon Rondon struck the woodwork just seven minutes after the break.

The 65th minute saw Mauricio Pochettino’s side very nearly also scored when Christian Eriksen had his effort incredibly saved by Fabian Schar on the goal line, with technology saying the ball didn’t cross over.

Then almost immediately, Ayoze Perez tried to curl one into the top corner, however another beautiful save saw Hugo Lloris palm it away.

Finally, within the final 10 minutes of the game, a goal was placed into the back of the net and it was all thanks to Son.

He managed to get past his man and smashed a shot through Dubravka from the edge of the box to give Spurs what ended up being all three points.
