TWO of Boro's promising young talents, Dael Fry and Callum Cooke featured for England's U18s on Wednesday night as the Three Lions beat the Netherlands 4-1 at Leigh Sports Village.

England went 0-1 down through a Slabbekoorn strike, but the team was able to drag themselves level from an Adam Armstrong effort on 24 minutes.

Cooke was withdrawn at half-time with his side leading 3-1 after a second goal from Armstrong and one from Josh Sims.

The Young Lions continued to press the Dutch and were rewarded after their fourth goal came from a Demetri Mitchell penalty after Taylor Moore was brought down in the area.

Both Fry and Cooke have enjoyed successful stints playing for their country so far, with the Boro youngsters playing an integral part in the U17s European Championship glory earlier this year.

The team were crowned European champions in May this year after beating the Dutch 4-1 on penalties in Malta.
