Newcastle players Freddie Woodman and Adam Armstrong both had outings in England’s 2-1 win against Mexico yesterday to win the Toulon Tournament for the third year in a row.
Goalkeeper Woodman was a starter and also won the best goalkeeper award at the tournament with Adam Armstrong coming on as a substitute in yesterday’s game.
It’s an excellent lift for England before the World Cup starts in Moscow on Thursday so let’s hope England have a good World Cup this time around.
England had beaten Scotland 3-1 in the semi-finals 3-1 in a comeback win after going a goal behind.
Certainly, Freddie Woodman and Adam Armstrong have had success with the England Youth sides recently.
England U21 players celebrate their win yesterday
Last year the England U20 side won the U20 World Cup in South Korea when we beat Venezuela 1-0.
Here’s Freddie tweet after yesterday’s win:

Freddie Woodman is now likely to go out on loan to a Championship club for next season, but it’s more uncertain what will happen to local lad Adam Armstrong who has played well for the England U21 side in the tournament.
Congratulations to both Newcastle players.
