Newcastle boss Howe challenges youngsters to grab chance in Saudi Arabia

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has told his young players to build on the chance they're now receiving during the World Cup break.

Dylan Stephenson, Joe White, Jay Turner-Cooke, Alex Murphy and 16-year-old Lewis Miley all featured in victory over Al Hilal on Thursday.

"When you go on trips like this, you're looking to benefit not just the first team but the staff and also giving academy players an opportunity as part of what we want to do on a regular basis," Howe told NUFC TV.

"So great for them. They all deserve it individually.

"They have all had different journeys to get here, but they have got an important part to play in our future hopefully. How much of that is going to be down to them and how they progress from here, but they have all got talent and they have all got something to offer."
