Rovers Internationals Round Up

The usual batch of International friendlies are underway this midweek and no doubt we will be hearing how they are a waste of time by 'insert Premier League managers name here' but last night saw some interesting developments.

The main news is that Keith Andrews was involved in a friendly match against the much hyped Brazil. Our Keith even got on the score sheet... but at the the wrong end.

Brazil won 2-0 in the end and to be fair, bar the own goal, Keith was actually pretty good marking Kaka and a few other Samba boys.

Steven N'Zonzi's France Under 21's beat Niko Kalinic's Crotian equivalent 3-1 in a cracking match.

Niko played the first 45 minutes and N'Zonzi only got 7 minutes at the end so their paths didn't cross which is a shame but never mind.

Johnny Flynn was in the always luxury destination of San Marino as they beat the Marinans 3-0 in the Under 21s.

And Martin 'I'm actually good now' Olsson was impressive as the Swedish youngsters saw off a strong Portugal side 2-0.

So not a bad night on the whole bar an Andrews mistake.

Such a different run out of Int'l appearances compared to two years ago when this article would have talked about Nelson, Emo, MGP, Khish, RSC, Ooijer and Benni, Warnock and Bentley snubs.
