Adam Armstrong is having some great games for the England U17 side in the 2015 European Championship qualifiers, and today against Ireland he hit yet another two goals in their 6-0 win, and he now has six goals in three games in the qualifying rounds.
Adam Armstrong – he resembles a young Kevin Nolan
But he’s a lot better than Kevin was at just 16
We had profiled the 16 year-old number 10 a few weeks back, and he is certainly raising some eyebrows with his top performances for the England U16 side, and he has scored braces in each of three qualifiers against Armenia (4-0), Gibraltar (8-0) and now Ireland.
England have won all their games in the group, and have scored a massive 18 goals and not conceded any in their three games, but of course there will be much tougher opposition in the Elite rounds to be played next March.
And Adam was taken off at half time in the game today, after complaints from the Irish coaching staff, that the Geordie lad was just too good.
Armstrong has also been starring for the Newcastle U21 side, even though he is only 16, and he’s scored five times in seven Barclay’s Under-21 Premier League appearances for Newcastle this season.
This lad could be the real thing, and his idol is not only Wayne Rooney, but he resembles Wayne in stature, and Adam is also a natural number 10, and he scores goals just like Wayne too.
And yes, I made that up about the Ireland coaches complaining he was too good – but it sounded good. 😀
