Clarets in Euro 2008 Summary

Clarets in Euro 2008 Summary

Northern Ireland last night moved to to the top of their Euro 2008 Group table as they swopped places with Sweden after beating them 2-1 at Windsor Park. Current hotshot, David Healy scored a brace to compliment his hat-trick in the previous game against Liechtenstein! David Healy is becoming a bit of an enigma, he is struggling with his team Leeds but is raising his profile considerably on the Euro stage. One wonders if the January transfer window rumours of a Healy move to Turf Moor had any substance.

Oh well we can but speculate on that so lets look at how well our own Clarets did on the International Euro 2008 stage last night.

Steve Jones will be the most disappointed.It had been hoped he might have been considered a direct replacement for the suspended Northern International winger, Keith Gillespie. Lawrie Sanchez however chose to keep Jones on the bench and he didnt feature in the match at all.

Kyle Lafferty was maybe surprisingly dropped to the bench. He did however come on to replace Feeney after 79 minutes but didnt therefore have much time to make an impression.

Michael Duff played the full 90 minutes and after 25 minutes was presented with Northern Ireland's first opening chance but headed well over from a Chris Brunt corner.

Our fourth International, Danny Coyne played for Wales in goal as they had a comfortabale 3-0 win against minnows, San Marino in the Millennium Stadium. Their Euro 2008 ambitions though are all but over and despite the win they are now in fifth place with only six points after five matches.
