Swiss defender Fabian Schar scored a goal befitting of a striker, tearing into a 25-yard shot at St. James’ Park on Tuesday.

Scoreless in the relegation six-pointed, Schar was given room outside the box by the Burnley defense, apparently happy to let the center back have his time.

He made them pay dearly.

The goal was his third of the season following a brace versus Cardiff City in January.
