Newcastle fans have got a lot of love for the two Longstaff brothers, Sean and Matty, and they’ve recently been given the brilliant news that the younger sibling of the two, Matty Longstaff, has been called up to England’s U20 squad for the upcoming internationals.
Matty Longstaff has been called up to the @England U20 squad for their fixtures against Portugal and Iceland later this month.

It’s certainly an impressive feat for the young midfielder. The academy graduate made his Premier League debut this season when he started against Manchester United at St. James’ Park, and, as you’ll know, he went on to really endear himself to the fans as he slammed in the winner.
Now, though, it looks like his career is going one way, and after watching his older brother Sean make the steps into the senior side last season, it’s now Matty’s turn to do so, and an England age group call up has followed as a result of his recent form.
Will Sean and Matty Longstaff play for England together?
Yes of course
Not convinced, there's a lot of competition

The Magpies will be keeping a keen eye on Longstaff over the international break, although first, they’ll be backing him to help them get all three points against Bournemouth.
