Newcastle United youngsters Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman paraded the UEFA European Under-17 Championships trophy around Wembley on Friday night.

The Magpies pair were victorious in Malta earlier this month as England defeated Holland 4-1 on penalties in the final, and they were given a great reception before the senior England team's friendly win over Peru.

Head Coach John Peacock's whole squad and staff were invited by the Football Association to attend the match at the national stadium and embark upon a well-deserved lap of honour.

Goalkeeper Woodman, who saved a penalty in the shoot-out, told TheFA.com: "It is a dream as a kid to win something with England - especially in a penalty shoot-out.

"It was great for me to save a penalty - but all four of the takers for us were top drawer, too.

"You can see how much it meant to everyone here - the response by the crowd was brilliant and it was great. Hopefully it will be the first of many magical moments for us."

He added: "All year we have shown what a tight-knit group we were, especially out in Malta.

"We want to stick together and go through the age groups with England and continuing to play well as a team."

Armstrong missed the final through injury but scored two goals during the tournament as well as seven in qualifying.
