Newcastle Star Striker Scores Superb Goal – Video

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.

Adam Armstrong after scoring winner after 71 minutes against France

Adam was obviously delighted to have scored the winner after the game and this is the tweet he sent out.

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.

We’ll see.

Here’s the video of the goal.

What do you think?

    That is a carbon copy of a goal he scored for Barnsley
    earlier in the season.

    A goal Messi would have been proud of.

    welsh – whether or not he does well depends on the team tactics.

    He’s got the talent/energy to make the runs, but he needs
    someone who can see that and play the ball into the spaces.

    That depends also on tactics.
    De Jong ? Maybe, though I doubt that combination will ever
    be tried out.
    Shelvey on his own ? Probably need a bit more to make it work.

    that is his goal for Barnsley, unless 26 year old Irish player Conor Hourihane is playing for England u20s.
