Versatile defender Johnson opened the scoring with a header just 17 minutes into the U20 Elite League clash with the Czech Republic at St. George’s Park, before Stephy Mavididi doubled the England advantage from the spot shortly after.

Midfielder Barnes, currently on a season-long loan at Championship outfit Barnsley, made it 3-0 after converting a free kick from Connor Mahoney, while a fourth strike was added by Mavididi with 15 minutes to play.

Over on the first team front, fresh from Saturday’s goalless 2018 World Cup qualifier with Uganda, Daniel Amartey’s Ghana cruised to a 3-0 friendly victory over Saudi Arabia in Jeddah.

Midfielder Bartosz Kapustka is a regular for Poland U21s.

Amartey, capped over 20 times for the Black Stars, started the clash at the 62,000-capacity King Abdullah Sports City, as Nuhu Kasim and Thomas Partey (2) found the back of the net.

Earlier in the evening, winger Demarai Gray helped England’s Under-21s strengthen their U21 European Championships qualification campaign with a 1-0 triumph against Andorra.

Gray replaced Jack Harrison with 20 minutes to play at the Estadi Comunal d'Andorra la Vella, as the Young Lions sealed three points thanks to Tom Davies’ 52nd-minute effort.

The lively wideman continues his international involvement with England U21s.

Another young Fox in action was Development Squad stopper Daniel Iversen, who played 90 minutes in Denmark Under-21s’ 5-0 triumph over Finland.

Iversen’s nation have won all four of their U21 European Championship qualifiers in Group 3 and sit an impressive five points above Bartosz Kapustka’s second-placed Poland.

Kapustka, on a season-long loan at German outfit SC Freiburg, helped Poland to a 2-0 win on the same evening, setting up the opening goal against Lithuania in Gargždai.

Four days prior, the 20-year-old Polish winger played just under 80 minutes during the 3-3 draw with Finland in Łódź.
