The special group of Newcastle United players Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson joined at the World Cup
The Magpies duo joined a very special club on Monday afternoon.
Some of Newcastle United’s greatest names have represented England at the World Cup Finals.
The legendary ‘Wor Jackie’ Milburn and the club’s all-time record goalscorer Alan Shearer have all played for England at a finals since they first appeared at the tournament in 1950. In total, eight United players have walked out with the Three Lions on their chest at a finals, with Michael Owen being the last in that number when he suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury in a group stage draw with Sweden in 2006.
That number was taken into double figures on Monday afternoon as England’s latest bid for World Cup success got underway with a 6-2 win in their first ever meeting with Iran. Magpies defender Kieran Trippier played for the entire 90 minutes and he was joined by striker Callum Wilson with just quarter of an hour remaining.
