Boro’s youngest-ever player Nathan Wood captained England Under-17s to a 3-0 win over Russia in the second game of a mini-tournament played on home soil on Sunday.
Wood, who became our youngest-ever player in the Carabao Cup first round victory over Notts County back in August, led the Young Lions to a second win in the space of a few days after defeating the USA on Friday.
Joseph Gelhardt grabbed a double for the Young Lions, with Haydon Roberts also getting on the scoresheet for the Under-17s.
The Young Lions take on Brazil in the final game of the competition tomorrow night.
Meanwhile, Boro’s Northern Ireland duo George Saville and Paddy McNair could face off against club teammate Mo Besic against Bosnia & Herzegovina tonight as the international action continues.
Tonight’s UEFA Nations League clash between Northern Ireland and Bosnia could be the second all-Boro match-up in the space of a few days after Darren Randolph and the Republic of Ireland shared the spoils against Martin Braithwaite’s Denmark.
McNair and Saville both started for Northern Ireland in their Nations League defeat to Austria on Friday night, while Besic was an unused substitute in Bosnia’s goalless draw in a friendly with Turkey.
Tonight’s meeting is the second time the two nations have faced off in the Nations League, with Besic’s Bosnia edging a 2-1 win in the opening game of the competition.
Randolph and the Republic of Ireland are back in Nations League action on Tuesday night when they host Wales, while Braithwaite and Denmark entertain Austria in a friendly.
