Villa's International Players
So who played for their international teams last night?
The following were in the squads:
Gareth Barry (England v France)
John Carew (Norway v Montenegro)
Stiliyan Petrov (Bulgaria v Finland)
Martin Laursen and Thomas Sorensen (Denmark v Czech Republic)
Wilfred Bouma (Holland v Austria)
Olof Mellberg (Sweden v Brazil)
Shaun Maloney (Scotland v Croatia)
However only four started.
Gareth Barry put pay to any suggestions that he couldn't partner with Owen Hargreaves and put in a fine display v France in our unfortunate 1-0 loss!
Olof Mellberg played the full 90 mins as Sweden went down 1-0
John Carew scored for Norway (doesn't he always?) who lost 3-1 to Montenegro.
Thomas Sorensen played 90 mins and Martin Laursen played the first half in Denmark's 1-1 draw v the Czech Republic.
Shaun Maloney started for Scotland and played 72 mins in their 1-1 draw v Croatia.
Wilfred Bouma came on as a sub at half time in the topsy turvey game that saw Holland go down 3-0 only to win 4-3.
Meanwhile Craig Gardner featured for the England U21's in their 0-0. In an article on the PFA's site, they say he 'once again gave an accomplished display on the international stage.' Adding, 'We are all sure he has a massive future ahead of him at club and international level alike.' Full article: Click Here
