OXFORD United teenager Louis Griffiths has played his part in helping Wales reach back-to-back European Under-17 Championships.

Wales headed into their final game against Bulgaria knowing a win would be enough to make the finals, following their 2-1 win against Romania and 2-1 defeat to Sweden.

Griffiths was a late substitute against Romania, and played the first hour versus Sweden.

Wales took the lead seven minutes into the second half against Bulgaria, via an own goal from Bozhidar Petrov, before Norwich City youngster Elliot Myles doubled the lead with 16 minutes to go.

Bulgaria pulled a goal back with a minute to go, through Mihail Polendakov, but Wales were able to hold on and secure a place at the finals in Cyprus this summer. Griffiths was an unused substitute against Bulgaria.

The 16-year-old became United’s youngest ever player to represent the club when he was introduced from the bench for the final quarter of an hour as the U’s won 3-1 at Northampton Town in the EFL Trophy earlier this season.

That accolade has since been claimed by Leo Snowden, who became the first 15-year-old to play for United’s first team when he came off the bench against Chelsea Under-21s in the EFL Trophy.

The draw for the Euro finals will take place on April 3, with the qualified teams, alongside host nation Cyprus, to be split into four groups of four. The top two in each section will then progress to the knockout stages.
