NUFC International Round-Up

NUFC International Round-Up

Keeping my feelings of International games aside and friendlies at that, some of wor lot got some more International experience under their belt this midweek.

Papiss Cisse played against Guinea in Paris on Tuesday night in a 1-1 draw, whilst Wednesday saw the same result between Tim Krul's Dutch side and Davide Santon's Italian mob. Both players playing the full match.

Yohan Cabaye also played the full ninety odd minutes for France against Germany in their 2-1 defeat. Moussa Sissoko played 80 minutes and got an assist for the French as they took the lead whilst Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Mathieu Debuchy warmed the bench for the duration.

Captain Fabricio Coloccini got a cameo of around 8 minutes in Argentina's win in Sweden. Colo came on whilst they were leading 3-1 but a late goal for Sweden wasn't enough to threaten the final score, 3-2 to the Argies it finished.

Meanwhile, Shane Ferguson got an hour for Northern Ireland in their fixture in Malta in a dour 0-0 draw.
