International Roundup

International Roundup

You might have wondered why there was no games in the top two tiers this weekend if you're not that into your international football. And with England only available on t'internet at the princely sum of £11.99 and the U21's on there for free 'cos no-one bought up their rights either, it's understandable.

As it was, several Hornets were in action, and here's how they did -

Jordan Parkes was taken to the U20's World Cup, starting one game against Uzbekistan and setting up England's equaliser. Parkes was due to go out on loan before getting the call up to join Brian Eastwick's young Lions party.

One level up, and loanee Tom Cleverley set up of Zavon Hines' two debut strikes whilst Scott Loach managed to ship three and still be on the winning side whilst getting ninety minutes under his belt after his Euro 2009 horror show. England won 6-3 at Cov's Ricoh Arena in Euro Qualifying action against Macedonia.

Finally, and most notably, Don Cowie finally won his first cap for Scotland coming on as a half time sub for Ross Wallace in the Nissan Stadium, Japan. The former Ross County and Inverness Caledonian midfielder was only called up to the Scot's squad for the first time this week and returns from the marathon trip with 45minutes international experience under his belt.

Congratulations to our Internationals on their recent exploits.
