International Saddlers - Tyler Roberts Scores as Wales Ease to Victory

Walsall's on-loan West Brom striker Tyler Roberts was named among the starting XI as Wales Under-21s took on Switzerland Under-21s in their opening UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier on Friday evening.

18-year-old Roberts, who made a scoring debut against Bradford City last weekend, was involved in the action very early on, opening the scoring after just eight minutes of play by finishing off a slick passing move, the perfect start for Rob Page's side.

Sheffield United forward David Brooks doubled the young Dragons' lead just before the half-hour mark as he chipped the 'keeper from a tight angle.

Tyler was replaced by Thomas Harris with seven minutes remaining, a solid run out for the Gloucester born forward.

The Dragons went on to score another goal late in the game as George Thomas netted during second-half injury time, a comfortable win for Wales, who begin their qualification campaign with a win.
