  • Wigan Athletic International Round-Up: September 2018
  • Will Grigg scores for Northern Ireland against Bosnia & Herzegovina
  • Antonee Robinson features for US Mens National Team and Reece James and Owen Evans in squads for England U20 and Wales U21 respectively

Will Grigg added the second international goal of his Northern Ireland career with a 93rd minute strike against Bosnia & Herzegovina on Saturday afternoon.

Grigg's goal was a late consolation in Belfast as Haris Duljevic and Elvis Saric scored for the visitors in their UEFA Nations League opener.

Grigg replaced Kyle Lafferty after 69 minutes and will hope for more game time when Michael O'Neill's side host Israel in an international friendly on Tuesday night.

Earlier this morning, Antonee Robinson played 90 minutes for the US Mens National Team in New Jersey as the Americans lost 2-0 to Brazil.

Roberto Firmino and Neymar scored first-half goals for the visitors, with USA now facing Mexico on Wednesday.

Reece James and Owen Evans were in England's U20 and Wales' U21 squads respectively, earlier this week.

Both unused substitutes, England U20s beat Switzerland U20 2-0 with George Hirst and Elliot Embleton on the mark for the Three Lions, who play Netherlands away on Monday.

Wales U21s beat Liechtenstein U21 2-1 and will now face Portugal on Tuesday, knowing only a victory will keep alive their hopes of qualification.
