A great start for Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman on Saturday as England kicked off in the finals of the Under 20 World Cup, the Newcastle pair helping the Young Lions to a three goal win.
Adam Armstrong scored the second goal and Freddie Woodman kept a clean sheet in the first group game.
Tuesday morning (UK) time has seen the England Under 20s play their second match against Guinea, with Steve McClaren’s former Newcastle assistant Paul Simpson surprisingly deciding to make four changes to Saturday’s team who put in an excellent performance.
The move backfired as England played out a tame 1-1 draw despite being up against a team they were expected to comfortably beat and who had lost 3-0 to tournament hosts South Korea on Saturday.
A win today would almost certainly have sent England through from the group stages but now they may need to get a result against South Korea on Friday, depending on how today’s Argentina v South Korea match turns out.
Adam Armstrong played the first 81 minutes before Chapman replaced him.
England 1 Guinea 1
