Arma's Revenge

Adam Armstrong's week keeps getting better as he scored for England under-17s against Daniel Barlaser's Turkey on Friday night

Adam Armstrong was on target as England gained revenge for their defeat to Turkey in the final of the Montaigu Tournament five months earlier.

In March, Newcastle's Daniel Barlaser was part of the Turkey team which beat the Young Lions on penalties at under-16 level, with Armstrong and Club colleague Kyle Cameron on the losing side.

But at Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium on Friday night, Armstrong's 50th minute goal gave England victory in the FA International Tournament.

The young forward - named in Alan Pardew's senior squad for the first time against Morecambe on Wednesday night - tapped home the game's only goal from Max Lowe's left-wing cross to cap an excellent display.

He played for 67 minutes while goalkeeper Freddie Woodman, who started against Portugal on Wednesday, was an unused substitute for John Peacock's side.

Starting in the number ten role, Barlaser played 72 minutes for the Turks and the Gateshead-born 16-year-old was heavily involved but unable to help his side force an equaliser.

On Sunday, both England and Turkey play their final games of the friendly tournament - England against Italy and Turkey against Portugal.
