Salomon Rondon is ready for Crystal Palace

“It was good for me, because I scored two goals with my national team. Of course, it’s a long flight from Panama – our last game was there – but I’m happy and confident when you score goals there. After, it was about being focused and getting back to Newcastle. I feel good. It’s a long flight, with the jet lag – it’s six hours behind in Panama – so when you arrive here you have to change quickly. It’s difficult sometimes because you can’t sleep and things like that, but now I’m more settled, so that’s good.

“It’s difficult for the supporters when they are seeing the team near the bottom of the table, but everyone knows our skills and that we work really hard. This is the Premier League, this is the game, and you have to get focused on the next game. The next game for us is Palace, so we have to get the three points. I think, in my opinion, you have to get just one win to get the confidence back. We know it’s a difficult game for us away at Palace, but we have to improve and do our best.

“Everyone knows, with Crystal Palace, how they play. They have quality players, but we have to impose our game and be efficient when we create chances and score goals. The most important thing is the team and our game, and to just be careful when they try to play, because they are really quick on the counter attack. Everyone knows how they play and we know, of course, how we will play.”
