Academy defender Kyle Cameron has been chosen for England's next Sky Sports Victory Shield match, against Wales next month.

The Club learned this week that the 15-year-old defender would be part of Kenny Swain's under-16 squad for the fixture in Port Talbot on Thursday, 1st November.

Since making his under-18s debut in the 1-0 win over Stoke in September, Cameron has played in every game for Dave Watson's side including last weekend's 2-1 victory against Aston Villa.

He follows in the footsteps of United team-mates Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman, who both played in last month's opening game of the annual tournament - a 5-0 win in Northern Ireland.

Goalkeeper Woodman isn't in the latest under-16s squad - but has instead been selected for three European Under-17s Championship qualifying games this month.

The 15-year-old, who was on the bench for Newcastle Reserves at Villa Park on Monday, has already won two caps at that age group, keeping clean sheets against Faroe Islands and Norway in the Nordic Tournament in August.

He will travel to Talinn in Estonia for games against Estonia (21st October), Wales (23rd October) and Northern Ireland (26th October).

Another young Magpie on international duty this month is midfielder Brandon Miele, who has been drafted into the Ireland under-19 squad.

He's in Luxembourg after being called up to replace the injured Inverness teenager Conor Pepper for European Championship qualifiers against Luxembourg (11th October), Macedonia (13th October) and Germany (16th October).
