International Round Up

International Round Up

A fair bit to crow about for Villans everyone following the exploits of a couple of our lads in last nights international matches.

In the full setups, Capello opted not to include Ash so he's fresh, fit and no doubt raring to go against Stoke on Monday.

Richard Dunne helped Ireland to a 3-1 win over Andorra, with Eire now topping the group and John Carew was instrumental in Norway's winning single goal against Portugal.

Unfortunately The Hulk limped off shortly after on 36 minutes and is now a doubt for Monday, although more will be known over the coming days.

Stiliyan Petrov is now surrounded by speculation that he's about to quit international football following Bulgaria's less than favourable start to qualification. Following the loss to England, they went down 1-0 to Montenegro in last' nights fixture.

In the U21 set ups we definitely have reason to be cheerful.

Barry Bannan saved Scotland's blushes in their clash against Austria by bagging a fantastic equiliser before Scotland went on to win the match 2-1 and put themselves top of the group.

If fit Andreas Weimann would've no doubt played, and you can't but help think that despite the influence of Bannan the game would've been slightly different with him on the pitch.

For the England U21's Delfouneso somehow didn't get on the pitch and remained an unused substitute in their 3-0 victory over Lithuania where Danny Welbeck grabbed a brace from about 30000 chances. I think the U21's have found their Emile.

Marc Albrighton replaced the ironically named Cleverly (he was anything but, and should frankly never start ahead of Albie again) on 64 minutes and instantly affected the match with his runs and crossing.

To seal his performance he grabbed himself the second and his first England U21 goal I believe.

Echo that. Early nominee for Young Player of the Season I'd say.
