PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Kieran Trippier followed in Alan Shearer's footsteps by becoming the first Newcastle player to captain England at a major tournament. The Magpies defender was handed the armband after Harry Kane left the field of play against Qatar. The Spurs striker was replaced by Callum Wilson with 14 minutes of normal time remaining, with Trippier taking the armband for the rest of the game. It's a feat that hasn't be done since 22 years ago. Shearer captained the Three Lions back in Euro 2000, but no Newcastle player has been able to follow suit, until now. The stat is perhaps somewhat indicative of the Toon's decline since the early noughties.
