Mixed Fortunes For Rovers Youngsters

Mixed Fortunes For Rovers Youngsters

Blackburn Rovers had two players representing their countries at Under-21 level on Tuesday Evening and they had mixed degrees of fortunes results wise, even if both played their part.

Matt Derbyshire started for the England Under-21's as they followed up their opening European Under-21 Championship Qualifying victory over Montenegro with another victory, this time a 2-0 win over Bulgaria in Sofia. Derbyshire played 82 minutes and helped set up the second goal scored by West Ham United's Mark Noble.

Left-back Martin Olsson was again said to be impressive as he played the full 90 minutes of Sweden's Under-21 friendly with Germany. Unfortunately for Olsson his Swedish side succumbed to a 2-1 defeat, but it is yet further valuable experience for the highly rated Rovers youngster, who is currently the back up to Stephen Warnock at left-back following Bruno Berner's injury.

The focus of attention switches to the senior England side tonight as England take on Russia in the latest MUST win European Championship Qualifier, a match in which it is hoped avid Bentley can again feature for England, and this time to a more hospitable atmosphere.

It was another good run out for the guys, which will only benefit Rovers further still.
I'm REALLY looking forward to the England match tonight and HOPE Bents can get another chance tonight, and if he does hopefully he will get a better reception this time!!!

i thought the reception was fair and expected, but hope that it was a one-off just to show the guy he did wrong. maybe he'll come off the bench towards the end, but with swp in this kind of form, i cant see him getting any more than 10-15mins

I'll will give you maybe expected but hardly fair, I think people maybe need to understand the full pciture, and dare I say even have Bents playing for their side to fully appreciate what he did, and why he did it. It WAS NOT a case of turning down a chance to play for his country as is portayed!!!

I really like Derbyshire even if he does look like a young Gareth Southgate!
