Celtic’s youth side came from a goal down to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 this afternoon in the Blue Stars/FIFA Youth Cup in Switzerland.

Two trialists were on target against the Germans to help Stevie Frail’s side to full points with Group B perfectly balanced with Club America (Mexico) and FC Zurich on 4 points ahead of Celtic, Dortmund and Blue Stars all on 3 points.

Celtic lost their opening match 1-0 to the host club who went on to lose to Zurich and Club America.

Against Dortmund the Germans went in front after twelve minutes but an equaliser 5 minutes later from a trialist was followed by another scoring trialist four minutes from time with Dortmund losing their discipline having three players booked in the last ten minutes.
