Newcastle United youngster Adam Armstrong found the net during England U18’s 2-0 over Russia.

Newcastle United hotshot Adam Armstrong took to social networking site Twitter in order to share his delight at helping the England U18s to a superb 2-0 victory over Russia.

The 18-year-old forward was making his seventh appearance for his nation on Monday afternoon, having previously found the net times in his previous six encounters.

Aside from being England’s leading scorer, the Newcastle youngster is also the team skipper and led by example as he forced the opposing shot-stopper into a number of key saves.

With the scores locked at 0-0 midway through the second half, Armstrong opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Fulham teenager Patrick Roberts netted a second from distance.

Arrmstrong was joined in the starting XI by fellow Newcastle products Freddie Woodman and Daniel Barlaser, the latter of who the striker also praised in his celebratory Tweet.

Following his rise with the Magpies, the teenage striker got a taste of first-team action last season, making his first Premier League start during his side’s 3-1 Boxing Day defeat at Manchester United.

He went on to make a number of substitute appearances, with his biggest contribution providing an assist during the Geordies’ entertaining 3-3 draw at home to Burnley on New Year’s Day.
