Newcastle United Under-17s 3
CSKA Moscow Under-17s 1
Dave Watson's youngsters marched into the semi-finals of the Milk Cup after coming from behind to beat Russian side CSKA Moscow in Ballymoney.
Adam Campbell hit a brace to take him to five goals in three games while midfielder Liam Smith was also on target to set up a meeting with Bolton Wanderers in the last four on Wednesday evening (kick-off 7.30pm, Riada Stadium, Ballymoney).
Despite starting brightly, United found themselves a goal down as they conceded for the first time in the competition after failing to deal with a corner, with Denis Masyutin forcing home.
But Campbell restored parity soon afterwards when he raced onto Alex Kitchen's long ball and continued his fine run of form in front of goal with a cool finish.
And the 17-year-old - Newcastle's oldest player in this competition, qualifying by virtue of being born on the cut-off date of January 1st 1995 - grabbed his second before the break, snaffling the rebound as Alex Gilliead's shot was parried.
Smith wrapped up the win as he bent a free-kick into the net - but the action wasn't over yet.
The Russian side lost their discipline late on with a series of over-zealous tackles, culminating in a red card in the closing stages after a foul on substitute Jamie Sterry, but the Magpies kept their heads and their pride and will face either Cherry Orchard or Desportivo Brazil in the Premier section final if they can overcome Bolton.
