Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill earned his sixth cap when he lined up for England’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro last night. While England only needed a draw to secure their place in the finals that was all they got. 2-2 was the final score — England’s overall performance was enough but disappointing.
Meanwhile, Ivan Klasnic was probably pleased not to have been part of Croatia’s clash with Greece that saw riotous scenes amongst fans. Greece beat Croatia 2-0, however, Croatia still can still qualify for Euro 2012 and face Latvia on Tuesday.
Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan watched from the subs bench as Hungary beat Moldova 0-2 and unsigned Gabor Kirarly showed the Wanderer how to keep a clean sheet. Hungary take on Finland but neither nation will be at next year’s European Championship.
Wales beat Switzerland in Swansea last night, 2-0. Wales manager and former Wanderer Gary Speed spoke of “nail-biting” match against, “the best team we’ve played.”
