U18s: Newcastle 1 United 7

Cardona-Lopez planted a back-post header past Gollini in the fourth minute of the second half, before Quinn forced a superb full-length save from the Italian stopper, but any faint hopes of a dramatic comeback were curtailed just after the hour.

Pereira fed Wilson, whose neat touch away from a defender took him through on goal and allowed him to drill another low finish inside Woodman's near post.

The Magpies goalkeeper then turned away a low Pereira shot but was once again left exposed by his defence in the 73rd minute as Pereira fed substitute Gorre to sidefoot home a finish high into the net.

Pereira's shot was saved and Daehli flashed a shot just wide as the game meandered to its foregone conclusion. Both deserved goals for their outings, but their approach play - and the impressive work of the entire team - instead provided the platform for a five-star display of finishing from 16-year-old Wilson.

United: Gollini; Evans, McNair (Wilkinson 74), Grimshaw, Rowley (Harrop 46); Rudge, Pearson (Gorre 63), Weir, Daehli; Periera, Wilson. Subs not used: O'Hara, Byrne.
