Josh Griffiths & Reyes Cleary feature for Young Lions

Reyes Cleary in action for England

Albion youngsters Josh Griffiths and Reyes Cleary both made substitute appearances for two of England’s youth teams on Tuesday.

Goalkeeper Griffiths played the second half of the U21’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Croatia at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.

The Baggies stopper replaced Bolton’s James Trafford at the break, with the visitors already leading 1-0 thanks to a Martin Baturina goal.

Croatia then added a second eight minutes into the second 45 when Dion Beljo beat Griffiths from the spot.

Morgan Gibbs-White scored a penalty for England late on, however it proved to be nothing more than a consolation.

Elsewhere, striker Reyes Cleary came on in the 79th minute for the U19s as they claimed a 2-0 win in Turkey. 

Cleary replaced Arsenal’s Amario Cozier-Duberry late on in a game which was won by goals from the Gunners forward and George Hall.
