International round-up

11 October 2014

  • Owls' international trio unused substitutes on Saturday
  • Eire, Scotland and England Under-20s record victories
  • Stevie May, Keiren Westwood and Joe Wildsmith on international duty

The Owls’ trio of internationals took a watching brief on Saturday as their respective nations picked up victories in the early evening kick-offs.

Wednesday striker Stevie May, who has earned widespread acclaim since linking up with the Scotland senior squad, was an unused substitute in the Scots' Euro 2016 qualifier with Georgia.

Scotland kick-started their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win at Ibrox, as Akaki Khubutia put into his own net in the first half.

Next up for Gordon Strachan’s men is a trip to Warsaw on Tuesday to face Poland.

Elsewhere, Keiren Westwood was on the bench for the Republic of Ireland’s crushing win over Gibraltar.

The Irish cruised to a 7-0 victory in their Euro 2016 qualifying clash, with Millwall goalkeeper David Forde given the nod between the sticks.

And finally, the England Under-20s continued their fine start in the International Four Team Tournament.

England faced tournament hosts Holland on Saturday and won in dramatic fashion, scoring twice in stoppage time to emerge 3-2 winners.

Wednesday’s young shot-stopper Joe Wildsmith was named on the Three Lions’ bench as Aidy Boothroyd’s young side made it back to back victories.
