City full-back plays 90 minutes for Sweden

MARTIN Olsson returned to senior football on Saturday, completing 90 minutes for Sweden in their European Championship qualifier against Russia.

The defender, who has played only 45 minutes for City's Under-21s since shoulder surgery in May, started at left-back as the Scandinavians were beaten 1-0 in Moscow in their Group G meeting.

Olsson could feature when they return to Sweden on Tuesday to host Austria (7.45pm) in Stockholm.

Elsewhere, the Canaries' Development Squad midfielder Cameron King was among the substitutes for Scotland's Under-21s as they faced Northern Ireland in Lurgan.

King, an FA Youth Cup winner in 2013, replaced Ryan Fraser in the 85th minute, with Ricky Sbragia's team holding on for a 2-1 victory.
