INTERNATIONAL ROUND-UP

6 September 2013

City players in youth and senior international action

NATHAN Redmond played a lively role for England's Under-21s as they secured a successful start to their qualification campaign for the 2015 European Championship in the Czech Republic, with a 1-0 defeat of Moldova at the Madejiski Stadium in Reading.
 
Redmond played 75 minutes for Gareth Southgate’s side before being replaced by Sammy Ameobi with England having taken the lead on 13 minutes courtesy of a strike by Saido Berahino.
 
In Under-19 action, City’s Carlton Morris made an instant impact as a second-half substitute scoring England’s 4th in a 6-1 friendly win over Estonia in Tallinn.
 
Canaries defender Harry Toffolo and winger Josh Murphy both started the match and helped England to a commanding lead before being substituted in the 58th minute.
 
Elsewhere, City defender Kyle McFadden played 53 minutes in a 2-0 win for Ireland’s U19s over Slovenia in a friendly in Dublin.
 
The international break’s senior action is set to get underway on Friday night with seven Canaries in contention to feature for their respective national sides.
 
John Ruddy will be in the England squad as they look to pick-up an important World Cup qualifiers win against Moldova at Wembley on Friday evening, before travelling to Ukraine for another qualifying fixture on Tuesday September 10.
 
City’s Scottish trio Russell Martin, Robert Snodgrass and Steven Whittaker will be with Scotland as they host Belgium at Hampden Park in Friday’s night qualifier. The Scots will then travel to Macedonia on September 10.
 
Anthony Pilkington and Wes Hoolahan will be on the bench for Ireland when they come up against City teammates Johan Elmander and Martin Olsson when Giovanni Trapattoni's men face Sweden at the Aviva Stadium on Friday. Ireland then face Austria in Vienna on September 10, while Sweden travel to Kazakhstan.
 
Ricky van Wolfswinkel will hope to impress for the Netherlands - he's in their squad for their away match against Estonia on Friday. The Dutch squad will then travel to Andorra on September 10. 


City youth player Cameron McGeehan is part of the Northern Ireland U19 squad for next week’s friendly against Austria; while academy teammate Cameron King has been called-up up to Scotland’s U19s for Tuesday’s fixture against Iceland.
