International round up: Defender sets record

International round up: Defender sets record

A round-up of all the Royals away on international duty, including a record set by one of our defenders.

The man in the spotlight is Chris Gunter, who is the youngest Welshman to achieve 50 caps, in their credible 1-1 draw with Belgium. The defender also played in an unfamiliar centre back position, with teammate Hal Robson-Kanu playing the majority of the game in Brussels.

Fellow defender Kaspars Gorkss led his native Latvia to a 2-2 draw with Slovakia, after being two goals down at half time. Right back Stephen Kelly was an unused sub for the Republic of Ireland, but former Royal Kevin Doyle lined up for the Irish, with Shane Long on the bench.

Chris Baird was recalled to the starting line up for Northern Ireland, as they drew 1-1 with Israel in their final world cup qualifier. Baird lined up in centre midfield, a position he has been playing for Reading since he joined last month. Jobi McAnuff started for Jamaica this morning in their 2-2 draw with Honduras, while Shaun Cummings was on the bench.
