Adam is one of Newcastle’s most highly rated youngsters, and he has played for the England U16 and U17 teams and now the U19 side and so far he has two first team appearances fro Newcastle.

The game against Turkey was in preparation for May’s Elite Qualifying Round for the European U19 Championships.

Adam made his debut in the 55th minute, when the 5’7″ striker replaced Birmingham’s Nathan Redmond at the New Bucks Head Stadium in Telford,

Adam didn’t score last night and England’s winner came in the first half, when Southampton’s Calum Chambers scored the England goal.

England have to play Belgium, Scotland and Georgia in Group 6 in May for a place in this summer’s European U-19 Championships to be held in Lithuania.
