Adam Armstrong scored and Freddie Woodman captained England under-16s in a 4-3 friendly defeat to Germany on Thursday evening.
Defender Kyle Cameron completed a Newcastle United trio in Cologne as Kenny Swain's side played for the first time since a triumphant Sky Sports Victory Shield campaign at the end of last year.
Woodman started before coming off at half-time with the score at 1-1, and although it was the first time the goalkeeper had conceded in five England appearances spread across under-16 and under-17 level, he was honoured to wear the armband.
The 15-year-old told nufc.co.uk: "It was a very proud moment for me and my family. Dreams do come true."
Armstrong, 15, and Cameron, 16, were both winning their second caps. Cameron played the first half while Armstrong appeared as a 48th minute substitute, finding the net within 12 minutes of his arrival.
That made it 3-2 to England but the hosts scored two late goals to win the game.
