LEEDS United midfield star Alex Mowatt was an unused substitute in England U20’s 1-1 draw with Mexico on Wednesday evening, with the young Lions triumphing 4-2 on penalties.

Mexico took the lead in the second half through Jose Ramirez, but Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom levelled from the spot ten minutes from time at Barnet FC.

Mowatt - who has scored eight goals for United this term in a thoroughly impressive 2014-15 - recently received his first call-up to the under-20 squad with Boothroyd’s side also in action on Sunday afternoon in a friendly against USA at Home Park, Plymouth.

Lewis Cook is part of the England U19 squad who start their Elite Round triple header of qualifiers against Denmark in Bayeux on Thursday (kick-off 5pm).
