NEWCASTLE United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman is set to captain his country this week.

The 17-year-old has been given the honour by England Under-18s, who are travelling to play their Italian counterparts on Wednesday.

The highly-rated shot-stopper – who is the son of Newcastle goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman – is currently on loan at Hartlepool United from the Tyneside club.
