Adam Campbell

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor

 

United teenager Adam Campbell has capped a remarkable fortnight by being called up to the England Under 19 squad.

The 18-year-old made his Premier League debut eight days ago as a substitute against Stoke City, and then stepped off the bench during the Magpies' Europa League Round of 16 victory over Anzhi Makhachkala.

And now the Academy forward has been drafted into the England Under 19s ranks for their final warm-up game before they head to Belgium for the Elite Qualifying Round in May

Campbell replaces Chuba Akpom, of Arsenal, and is part of an 18-man squad which will face Turkey at Telford's New Bucks Head Stadium on Thursday night (7.30pm kick-off).
