INTERNATIONAL ROUND-UP

11 September 2013

September's international break concludes

NORWICH City were well represented this week as the second round of 2014 World Cup qualifiers involving European nations took place.

Scotland duo Russell Martin and Steven Whittaker helped the Scots register a 2-1 win over Macedonia. Robert Snodgrass missed out through suspension.

Johan Elmander and Martin Olsson again featured for Sweden who have put themselves into a commanding position in group C to qualify behind Germany. Their 1-0 victory in Kazakhtan has all-but ended Irish hopes of qualification, Giovanni Trapattoni's side falling to a 1-0 defeat in Austria last night.

Anthony Pilkington made his first start for the Republic playing for 73 minutes in Vienna. Wes Hoolahan was an unused substitute.

Canaries' goalkeeper John Ruddy was on the bench for Roy Hodgson's England as they drew 0-0 in Ukraine to top Group H.

Elsewhere, Ricky van Wolfswinkel was an unused substitute as Robin van Persie's brace saw The Netherlands beat Andorra 2-0 and secure qualification from Group D.

Meanwhile, Nathan Redmond played 58 minutes for the England Under-21s in their 1-1 draw in Finland on Monday evening.
