Young Lions Are Four-Midable

England's under-18s beat Belgium 4-0 in a friendly at St. George's Park on Tuesday, with Newcastle's Alex Gilliead involved for the Young Lions.

Middlesbrough teenager Bradley Fewster scored the first three goals - two of them from the penalty spot - in the behind-closed-doors match at Burton.

And Blackburn forward Dean Rittenberg added the fourth late on for Neil Dewsnip's side.

Gilliead - who was called up as a late replacement having been on standby for the original squad - came on for the final five minutes in place of Tottenham's William Miller.

It was the Shotley Bridge-born 18-year-old's first cap at under-18 level, although he had been capped eight times for the under-17s and four times for the under-16s.
