INTERNATIONAL ROUND-UP

16 October 2013

A full round-up of the international matches involving Norwich City players

A GOAL from Robert Snodgrass ensured Scotland finished their World Cup qualification campaign on a high by beating Croatia 2-0 at Hampden Park.

The Canaries winger headed home in the first half to help them leapfrog Wales in Group A. Russ Martin also featured for Gordon Strachan's side.

Leroy Fer played 90 minutes for the Netherlands as they beat Turkey 2-0 in Istanbul - that followed him coming on as a substitute in their 8-1 thrashing of Hungary on Friday.

After missing out on their first match against Slovenia, Alex Tettey played the full game for Norway as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Iceland in Oslo. They finished fourth in Group E.

Martin Olsson was involved in a thrilling encounter for Sweden against Germany, with his side racing into a 2-0 lead before being pegged back, eventually losing 5-3 in Stockholm.

The left-back had scored in their 2-1 victory over Austria four days earlier - a game in which fellow Canary Johan Elmander also featured.

John Ruddy was an unused substitute for England as they booked their place for next summer's tournament with victories over Montenegro and Poland at Wembley, while Wes Hoolahan, not used in Ireland's defeat to Germany on Friday, appeared as a substitute four minutes from the end in Tuesday's 3-1 win against Kazakhstan.

The Canaries have also been well represented in qualifying for the UEFA European Under-19 Championship - both Cameron McGeehan and Kyle Callan-McFadden played every minute for Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland respectively, but only the Republic managed to progress to the Elite Qualifying Round.

They beat Azerbaijan 2-0, Sweden 1-0 and drew 1-1 with Bosnia & Herzegovina yesterday in the final match of their triple-header. Northern Ireland faced tough opposition in Belgium, France and Iceland and just missed out after picking up a single point.

England's Under-19s managed to progress after drawing 1-1 with Slovenia, beating Andorra 7-0 and edging past Switzerland 1-0. Carlton Morris scored in the victory over Andorra, while Josh Murphy and Harry Toffolo also starred for Noel Blake's side.
