​Newcastle keeper Woodman becomes England hero and U20 WC Golden Glove winner

Newcastle keeper Freddie Woodman picked up the Golden Glove award after helping the England U20 to a historic 1-0 win over Venezuela in the final of FIFA U20 World Cup.

The 20-year-old became a hero for his side after he saved an Adalberto Penaranda penalty in the second half of the final with the Three Lions leading 1-0.

After the game, he said: "I know it's the old cliché but you dream about saving a penalty in a World Cup final, and for me to say it now is little bit crazy."

"To be seen as the best goalkeeper in the world [at this level] is quite surreal."
