Newcastle Teenager Gets Hat-Trick For England And 27 Goals In 40 Games


The England U-20 side are currently taking part in the Continental Cup in South Korea in preparation for the U-20 World Cup which will take place at the same venue next summer.

Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman are in the squad and they played their opening match this morning and they hammered Nigeria 8-1.

Adam Armstrong celebrates scoring goal today

They were four goals up by half-time with Adam Armstrong getting two and he added a third for his hat-trick in the second half to give England an overwhelming win.

Freddie was a substitute for the game with Manchester United’ Dean Henderson between the posts – he’s on loan at Grimsby Town.

So Adam shows he can score the goals for the England Youth sides and he’s played a cumulative 40 times for various age groups and scored a fantastic 27 goals – not too bad.

We’ll have to wait and see until the summer to see if Rafa Benitez has him in the Newcastle squad for next season or will send him out on loan again.

Here’s the team today with all the subs:

England U-20s: 13 Dean Henderson (Grimsby Town, loan from Manchester United); 2 Kyle Walker-Peters (Tottenham Hotspur), 6 Dael Fry (Rotherham United, loan from Middlesbrough), 5 Taylor Moore (c) (Bristol City), 14 Callum Connolly (Everton), 23 Axel Tuanzebe (Manchester United), 19 Kieran Dowell (Everton), 7 Patrick Roberts (Celtic, loan from Manchester City), 11 Dom Solanke (Chelsea), 17 Isaiah Brown (Rotherham United, loan from Chelsea), 9 Adam Armstrong (Barnsley, loan from Newcastle United)

Substitutes: 1 Freddie Woodman (Newcastle United), 22 Luke Southwood (Reading), 3 Jonjoe Kenny (Everton), 15 Fikayo Tomori (Chelsea), 4 Jake Clarke-Salter (Bristol Rovers, loan from Chelsea), 16 Tafari Moore (FC Utrecht, loan from Arsenal), 8 Josh Onomah (Tottenham Hotspur), 24 Louis Reed (Sheffield United), 18 Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Arsenal), 20 Ovie Ejaria (Liverpool), 12 Ademola Lookman (Charlton Athletic), 10 Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), 21 Harrison Chapman (Sheffield United, loan from Middlesbrough)

Goals: Taylor Moore 19, Adam Armstrong 20, 27, 70, Dominic Solanke 25, Callum Connolly 46, Patrick Roberts 49, 87

    Repost:
    I’ve heard a rumour that Wolves drew up the complaint shortly after the game but the previous Wolves manager (I’ve forgotten his name) did nothing about it. However when Paul Lambert took over, he saw the complaint and thought it should be actioned hence the long delay. Only a rumour but sort of makes sense.

    If Wolves are keen to make a case of this then surely Shelvey and Newcastle need to clearly state now that there is no case to answer. Unfortunately silence maybe construed otherwise or has free speech ( not the allegation of insults ) stating the position been banned by the FA ( in brackets FIFA ) ?

    Struggling to see what your problem is mate, I put:

    firebug666 // Nov 9, 2016 at 8:33 AM

    One other thing before I go out, Why has the player who made these allegations not been named and put under similar scrutiny?

    How come he is allowed to hide in the shadows like some slimy little snake.

    Right off out now.

    And your reply was:

    Budge123 // Nov 9, 2016 at 9:07 AM

    That’s the spirit Firebug someone has been racially abused (allegedly) – so let’s brand him a slimey little snake.

    Let’s victomise the accused.

    Crazy response from many on this site.
    Let’s just imagine that Gayle had been abused by a Wolves player. I assume the same people would now be calling Gayle a slimey little snake?

    Thought not.

    Can I just point out that the player the abuse was allegedly aimed at did not make a complaint, but another player claims that he heard it. He did not however bring it to the attention of the ref as he should have until the game was over.

    Why should he have anonymity while Shelvey is receiving all the crap before he is even found to be guilty?

    So anyway, I did not brand anyone who has been abused a slimy snake, try to read the comment before jumping on your soap box and dictating to the blog how we should behave.

    Tbf mate the victim doesn’t need to be named and Shelvey was only named when the charge was made (after what looks like a decent investigative time)

    You still missed the point, I said why should he be allowed to hide like a slimy little snake, not that he is one.

    He made allegations, and now Shelvey is being tried on what he may or may not have said by the social media sites. He has to face the music guilty or not, so how come we don’t know the identity of his accuser?

    He is after all performing a character assassination on Shelvey, I would like to know who he is so we could judge his character too.

    If it comes out that he’s innocent (fingers crossed though at this point I think it’s unlikely) then questions will be asked about the accusations but Shelvey must of said something at the time

    Jib according to you it wasn’t abuse anyway as the ‘abused ‘ couldn’t be humiliated by something he didn’t understand.

    The point isn’t if proven or not the point is the deflection of blame that is being put forward.

    I totally agree, something may have been said, though maybe not what he is accused of, however I also think he will be found guilty as like a lot of people I think the FA have already made their minds up.

    I would just like his accuser to be know mate, then we could have a fairer view of who’s who, instead of Shelly getting it in the neck, he will however know who he is dealing with.

    He has denied it anyway hasn’t he?

    Sunderland have become the first Premier League side to take on the mannequin challenge.
    It’s the latest craze to hit social media, and simply involves standing very still.

    Firebug from personal experience I’m touchy on this so apologies if I’m taking your point the wrong way.

    But for me the victim or in this case ‘whistle blower ‘ should be nameless until the charge is proven or not.
    If not proven then is the time to name and indeed shame

    The problem with this type of situation in any walk of life is that once an accusation is made public then people start passing judgement under the pretext of no smoke without fire.

    Some of the shit then invariably sticks even if the accused is totally exonerated and so then has to live with the stigma attached .

    There is a call for accusations of a sensitive nature to be handled discreetly without names being made public and I think it’s the only fair way.

    I’m trying to stay out of this row, as also, it’s a touchy subject here too. My two pence worth is as follows, I will wait for the evidence, and for the charge to take place before judging, if anything, experience and previous precedents suggest there is a case to answer (Otherwise the FA would not have brought up a charge), however, if this is an allegation from a 3rd party just remember, just because somebody says something, doesn’t mean its true.

    I can accept that, and I understand honestly, I have suffered a lot of abuse (mostly from kids) over my disability. But if you make an allegation about a fellow professional why should you be allowed to hide until it all blows over?

    My own thoughts may be well off the mark, but we had to play Wolves again in a couple of days after that match, and maybe he was trying to get Shelvey suspended before that game……maybe.

    Yeah Shelvey has denied it since the game. I imagine Shelvey and NUFC know who has made the accusation but, imo at least, it helps no one making it public tbh I don’t think it matters

    Am not sure how it gets to this point without the FA having some evidence (video evidence maybe I don’t know what angles are available because it wasn’t televised was it? I can’t remember). We will see though Shelvey may not fight it

    If he is guilty then he needs to be punished and we will manage without him.

    On Armstrong, wow this lad is getting better and better, and his record is becoming very impressive, I hope Rafa is thinking about having him home for next season, he will have a bit more experience and be brimming with confidence.

    There has to be anonymity to encourage people to report abuse.

    If that anonymity itself is abused then the tables are turned and full disclosure or who is making unwarranted claims should take place.

    The Chad Evens case shows the issue with naming before and indeed after trial but what other way is there?

    People making a complaint should be protected otherwise they become the subject of investigation purely for ( if complaint upheld) being abused or reporting abuse

    Off thread and not intended to lead into a debate on the US election, I wonder how long it’ll be before those who voted for Trump’s American Dream, are singing ‘Big Rock Candy Mountain’.

    After the Brexit vote, the US election is another example of voters being manipulated and conned by soudbytes.

    Anyway, please restrain any desire to respond to this post. I’ve had me rant and medication so it’s time for some zzzzzzzzz.

    I don’t think the Shelvey situation can be compared to cases of child abuse/rape. The name of the alleged victim has to be known, otherwise it’s meaningless.

    Lesh – anonymity is common place through the legal system.(and this isn’t a criminal case )
    In this situation at some point the identities will and should come out but that shouldn’t be at this early stage in my opinion.

    Yep would love to see Armstrong given a chance, maybe a January return to integrate him with the team and system could be on the cards.

    Budge123 @ 29

    I agree that in certain circumstances there should be anonymity to protect the victims, but Shelvey’s accuser is not a victim, and claims he heard what Shelvey had said, so really it’s a case of hearsay.

    OK the FA may want to protect their source, and Wolves will defiantly want to protect him, but while all this is going on Shelvey is and has been slated. He has denied any abuse, and will no doubt want to defend himself against the allegations. I just get so angry that he is name and shames before being found guilty, while his (hearsay) accuser sits in comfort, untarnished.

    It can only boil down to his word against Shelvey’s at a hearing, (unless their is video evidence), and who the FA choose to believe, but in the mean time the damage to Shelvey is already well underway, if you throw enough mud some of it will always stick.
