Newcastle academy coach Joe Joyce was delighted to see Andy Carroll score on his England U19 debut last night against Belarus.
"I was delighted he chose to represent England and it is great recognition for him. It is also great recognition for the Academy.
"Andy was outstanding last year, especially in our FA Youth Cup run.
"After that he went on to play for the first team and this is the next stage for him.
"Knowing Andy, he will take this in his stride. He is a laid back lad and will not let it affect him too much.
"He is also hungry to learn and I know he will want to impress."
