Adam Armstrong scored the winner after 71 minutes yesterday as the England U20 side beat France 1-0 in the Four Nations Tournament and it was the Newcastle striker who was the danger-man for England throughout the game, according to reports.
Early in the game Armstrong’s free kick from the edge of the box was right on target and forced a save from Alban Lafont in the French goal and after that the Geordie youngster was involved in three more half chances for England.
And it was finally the 20 year-old who gave England the victory with a beautifully taken goal on 71 minutes – video is below.

Certainly Adam likes playing for the England Youth sides and in 41 total appearances in various age groups he has scored an amazing 28 goals.
Not too bad.
Adam will return from his season long loan spell at Barnsley in pre-season and try to force a way into Rafa Benitez’ plans for the first team next season.
But we think there is a good chance Adam may still be sent out on loan for part or all of next season.
Here’s the video of the goal.
