Newcastle fans quickly took to twitter after England had beaten Venezuela 1-0 in the U20 World Cup final which was shown on TV live around the world.
Freddie pout in a great second half performance after England had gone ahead 1-00 after a goal from Everton’s Dominic Calvert Lewin after 35 minutes but Venezuela came storming back in the second half.
Freddie was the England hero with several fine saves that included a simply brilliant penalty save from the 20 year-old with only 15 minutes to go.

Freddie will be loaned out to a Championship club for next season and hopefully he will get lots of first team games as he builds towards being the future Newcastle number one goalkeeper, which could be in one or two years time.
He looks an outstanding young prospect but Newcastle fans have known that about Freddie for some time now.
And let’s not forget local lad Adam Armstrong who also played a big part in getting England to the final.
Let both lads know we are proud of them.
Here are some typical tweets from the Newcastle faithful.
Surely Freddie Woodman is a future #nufc number one? Or at the least I’d love to see it given consideration, lest another Forster happens
