Wickham First Into International Action
Tuesday, 8th Feb 2011 10:39
Striker Connor Wickham will be the first of the 10 Town players away on international duty to get into action when England’s U19s face Germany at Chesterfield’s new B2net Stadium this evening (MUTV 7.15pm). Loan defender Darren O’Dea will be amongst the subs when the Republic of Ireland take on Wales in their first Carling Nations Cup game at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin (Sky Sports One/HD1 7.30pm).
Wickham has previously won three U19 caps, scoring one goal, and made his U21 debut in November, also in a match against Germany.
O’Dea has three full caps for the Republic of Ireland, who will give former Blue Jon Walters his first full international start this evening. Walters, now with Stoke, won his first and so far only cap as a half-time sub in November’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Norway.
Town’s other eight call-ups will be hoping to add to their international caps tomorrow evening.

Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22

Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
The 'Exciting and Unpredictable' Championship! by TimS
Well done to Jolly Journo! I sympathised with much of what you wrote this week, and the some of the vitriol that came in response was embarrassing for this great club.
