Prolific Newcastle United loanee Adam Armstrong scores again

Coventry City's Adam Armstrong is a player in form.

Adam Armstrong can't stop scoring. The teenager has been in prolific form for Coventry City this season since joining from Newcastle United.

He was picked for England's under-19 side and struck again, netting the opening goal in a 2-0 win on Thursday away to Macedonia.

Armstrong's second half goal set England on the route to victory, with Arsenal winger Aisley Maitland-Niles, on loan at Ipswich Town, adding a second in injury time.

The young striker's success is a bright piece of news for Newcastle in what has been a frustrating season so far. They spent millions of pounds in the summer, but their most in form player is an 18-year-old lighting up League One.

Armstrong has eight goals in nine appearances for Coventry City this season, who will be anxious to extend his loan past January, but his form could give Newcastle second thoughts, to see if he can come back to compete for a place.

The teenager has a record of 17 goals in 25 games for Newcastle's under-21 side. He has made several appearances for the first team in the Premier League as a substitute, but none for longer than 20 minutes.
