Tuesday afternoon saw Adam Armstrong net his 23rd goal (watch it below) for England in only 33 appearances, a brilliant long range strike into the top corner.
The Geordie striker helped England Under 19s to a 2-0 win over hosts Spain, ensuring qualification for this summer’s Under 19 European Championships finals in Germany.
Adam Armstrong has now represented England at Under 16, Under 17, Under 18 and Under 19 level, making his first appearance for his country for the Under 16 side on 27 September 2012 at the age of 15.
Adam Armstrong record for England:
Under 16 – 6 games 1 goal
Under 17 – 12 games 10 goals
Under 18 – 9 games 9 goals
Under 19 – 6 games 3 goals
The video highlights below show Freddie Woodman make a number of saves to win a clean sheet against Spain but it is Adam Armstrong’s so sweet strike into the top corner from outside the box that is by far the pick of the action.
The Newcastle striker has had an outstanding breakthrough season in terms of first team football with 19 goals on loan at Coventry, as well as his continued form for England Under 19s.
He still of course has it all to prove at Premier League level but when you can strike the ball so beautifully time after time – and with either foot – I find it difficult to believe that Adam Armstrong isn’t destined for a career at the top level.
Watch his latest quality goal below – if you want to go straight to Armstrong’s strike then go to 1.40 – although worth a look at Freddie Woodman’s form as he prepares to return to the Newcastle first team bench after Rob Elliot’s injury on Tuesday night.
