Magpies duo Freddie Woodman and Adam Armstrong have been chosen for England's 18-man squad for next month's UEFA European Under-17 Championships.

The pair helped the Young Lions to reach the tournament, with forward Armstrong netting seven goals in qualifying and goalkeeper Woodman a regular between the posts. 

And now they have been selected for John Peacock's party for the competition in Malta - with both fittingly receiving the call on St. George's Day.

England will play in the tournament's opening match when they face the host nation at the National Stadium in Ta'Qali at 5pm (BST) on Friday, 9th May.

Three days later they take on Turkey at the Gozo Stadium (kick-off 11.15am), before their final group match comes on Thursday, 15th May, against Holland at Hibernians Stadium in Paola (11am).

Meanwhile, defender Kyle Cameron has been called up for Scotland's squad for the competition.

The Tartan Army are in Group B alongside the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland.

"Whatever happens, win or lose, it's going to be a good experience," he said. "We've got the harder group of the two but if we get out of that group I think we've got a really good chance.

"If we're going to win it, we may as well do it properly. From the beginning of the season it's been a target for me to go to the Euro finals so it's a good thing to extend the season."
