Clarets International-Well Edgar Played!

Clarets International-Well Edgar Played!

Three of our players were on duty for their countries during the international break but only David Edgar saw some action.

Keith Treacy was in the Republic of Ireland squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and Russia but sadly did not feature in any of the games, not even being named a substitute. The Republic of Ireland team though could be potential qualifiers after drawing 0-0 at home to Slovakia in Dublin last Friday and then managing to hold Russia in Moscow yesterday afternoon by the same scoreline! They were outplayed for most of the match but the draw keeps Russia just two points ahead of the Irish and Giovanni Trapattoni's side remain in the hunt with the Russians still having to travel to face other group contenders Slovakia. The Irish meanwhile have two qualifying games remaining in Group B still to play against no hopers Andorra(a)on 7th October and then Armenia (h) on 11th October.

Meanwhile Alex MacDonald was also on international duty for the Scotland Under 21 side but was an unused substitute in their 2013 Euro Championships qualifying game against Bulgaria on Monday night. The Group 10 qualifying game played on St Mirren's ground ended in a disapointing 0-0 draw for Billy Stark's men but they still have a good chance of qualifying.

Our last player on international duty was David Edgar. Canada had two CONCACAF Group D 2014 World Cup qualifying games against St Lucia at the BMO Field in Toronto last Friday followed by a game against Puerto Rico last night in the Estadio Juán Rámon Loubriel stadium in Bayamón in Puerto Rico.

They won both games comprehensively 4-1 and 3-0 respectively.

David Edgar played at right back for the full 90 minutes for Canada against Puerto Rico and looked to have a good game getting in some good crosses and defending well. He did though pick up a yellow card for a foul in the 20th minute.

In the previous game against St Lucia, Edgar did not feature.

I must admit I have been an admirer of Edgars since his brilliant performance at Old Trafford, unfortunately he hasn't played to much since then. I am hoping that it is about to change

I hope he does get a regular starting place, it will hopefully make Amougou up the ante and improve his effort!
