INTERNATIONAL CAREER.

 

Keith Newton made his international debut for England against West Germany in February 1966.

He went on to play 27 times for England, including three games at the 1970 World Cup Finals,

where, through injury, he gained the distinction of becoming the first England player to be

substituted at a World Cup, being replaced by Tommy Wright six minutes into the second half

of England's opening match against Romania in Guadalajara.

Newton also assisted in both England goals in the 1970 Quarter-Final defeat to West Germany.
