Taylor Gardner-Hickman made his England U20 debut on Friday night.
The Baggies ace was a second-half substitute for the Young Lions in their 2-0 defeat to Poland in Bielsko-Biala, replacing Kaine Kesler-Hayden in the 74th minute.
Goals early on in the second 45 from Radoslaw Golebiowski and Patryk Szwedzik saw the hosts take three U20 Elite League points.
Gardner-Hickman’s side will now return home ahead of Tuesday night’s fixture with Germany at Colchester United.
Elsewhere, Semi Ajayi was an unused substitute for Nigeria as they drew 0-0 away to Ghana in the first leg of their World Cup play-off.
The return fixture takes place back in Nigeria on Tuesday (ko 6pm).
