Carson Added to Those Away on International Duty
Sunday, 3rd Feb 2013 20:31

Midfielder Josh Carson has been added to Northern Ireland’s squad for their friendly in Malta on Wednesday. The 19-year-old, who has been called up due to injuries, has previously won four full caps.

Also away on international duty this week is skipper Carlos Edwards with Trinidad and Tobago, who is set to play his first game for his country since November 2011 when the Soca Warriors take on Peru, also on Wednesday.

Loan keeper Stephen Henderson could win his first senior cap for the Republic of Ireland having been named in their squad for a friendly with Poland, again on Wednesday.

Two Town youngsters face one another when the Wales U21s take on their Icelandic counterparts at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli in a friendly, once more on Wednesday evening.

Right-back Elliott Hewitt is in ex-Blue Geraint Williams’s Welsh squad and midfielder or defender Gunnar Thorsteinsson has been named in Iceland's travelling party.

How poor must Northern Ireland be to call up Carson?!

I would have thought Edwards could have done without international football at his age.

Good luck to Hewitt, the more matches he can get the better although I can't see him getting in the Ipswich side just yet if Stearman continues to play like he did yesterday - he was excellent.

Yes always weird that a player outside any first team gets in an international squad, especially from a Championship or lower team. Carson needs games desperately though, would like to see him do something for us but unfortunately feel it's highly unlikely at this stage. Fair amount of promise but maybe needs to drop a level and become a regular somewhere else.

Hmmm; Carson is playing internationals whilst we condemn our wide players (Edwards/Martin) for not producing. I have considerable respect for Mr McCarthy and his team and I realise that a relegation dogfight is not the ideal time to introduce kids, but they won't be able to show us what they can do unless they are given a chance.

Oh dear. Cant get a game and when he does he is so so poor even in the Under 21s.

Obviously Northern Ireland are short of someone to carry the water bottles!
