Newcastle United supporters have been reacting to a post on Twitter after Elliot Anderson made his England under-19’ debut. 

The 18-year-old was handed his first start in a Three Lions shirt by Ian Foster over the weekend in a friendly match against ’s under-23 side at St. George’s Park.

Anderson was taken off at half time in England’s convincing 6-1 win over the but did enough to catch the eye of many Newcastle fans in his 45-minute cameo.

The teenager’s impressive performance has led to several supporters calling for Steve Bruce to give the academy graduate a chance in the first-team set up at ’ Park as the Magpies aim to avoid a third relegation in 12 years.

“Congratulations on your debut, I think it’s time you were knocking on the door for a place in the #nufc first team. I’m sure you’ve got a big future ahead and hopefully it’s with #nufc”

“Well done. Might actually get a game for your club soon hopefully.”

@alirook

“Next stop a regular run in the first team I hope”

“Time to whack him in the match day squad and give him a chance”

@chelleandmaisie

“If only he could get a game for us”

@MetroSoad

“Now time to knock on mr Bruce’s door demanding more minutes #NUFC England under 19’s really impressed with you apparently so I reckon you’d be ready to leave everything on the pitch for your boyhood club”

Bruce’s men face Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend as their battle to beat the drop resumes, and with injuries still potentially depriving the north east outfit of Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson, Anderson may be in with a chance of making the matchday squad.
