NEWCASTLE United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman kept a clean sheet as England’s Under-19s took a step closer to European Championship qualification at the weekend.

The 18-year-old was part of a Three Lions side which defeated Azerbaijan 1-0, and England will book their place in the finals if they beat France tomorrow.

The tournament will take place in Greece in the summer, and should England qualify, Woodman will be looking for a second European Championship medal in as many years.

He was part of the England Under-17s side which lifted the Euros last summer, alongside Newcastle team-mate Adam Armstrong.
