Kieran Trippier says captaining England at St James' Park is something as a Newcastle United player he will never forget.

The 33-year-old played just over an hour as Gareth Southgate's side beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0 thanks to goals from Cole Palmer, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harry Kane. Trippier was eventually replaced by young midfielder Adam Wharton just after the hour mark.

Having been named in the Three Lions provisional squad for this summer's European Championships in Germany, Trippier is more than likely to have secured a seat on the plane to Germany, given the injury problems at full-back. Manchester United star Luke Shaw is still recovering from a long-term issue and Trippier is a more than capable option at left-back.

Taking to Instagram yesterday evening, Trippier was overcome with pride and honour, stating that wearing the armband at the place he calls home is something he will never forget.

"A moment I will remember forever leading my country out at my home club Newcastle United with my son Jacob," began the Magpies defender. "Good to get the win and now we move to Friday's final warm-up game."

The comments section was littered with players congratulating the former Atletico Madrid man, with some Newcastle United team-mates also offering kind words to Trippier on a special evening in the north-east.

"Love it skip," wrote Anthony Gordon, while Joe Willock and Bruno Guimaraes also added: ''Skip'' and ''Cap'' respectively. Magpies centre-back Sven Botman posted: ''Top player."

Candid replies from fans also flooded in with one posting: "Not a player who deserves to captain England more. A true leader and inspiration." Another wrote: ''Well done trips! Love the fact you were walking the other way when Palmer slotted the penalty home."
