Quintet Could Win Caps
Wednesday, 6th Feb 2013 10:18
Skipper Carlos Edwards is one of five Town players who could win international caps this evening. The 34-year-old is set to win his 83rd cap as the Soca Warriors face Peru in a home friendly.
Edwards, who has scored four international goals, hasn’t appeared for his country since November 2011.
Elsewhere, midfielder Josh Carson is in Northern Ireland’s squad for their friendly in. The 19-year-old, who was a late call-up due to injuries, has previously won four full caps.
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 (Sky Sports Two, 7.30pm).
Two Town youngsters face one another when the Wales U21s take on their Icelandic counterparts at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli in a friendly (Highlights, BBC2 Wales, 11.20, Sky channel 971).
Right-back Elliott Hewitt is in ex-Blue Geraint Williams’s Welsh squad and is likely to win his sixth U21 cap.
Midfielder or defender Gunnar Thorsteinsson has been named in Iceland's travelling party and will win his first cap at U21 level.
Meanwhile, loan defender Richard Stearman could soon join keeper Henderson in Republic of Ireland squads in the future having applied for Irish citizenship.
“It’s in the process at the moment," he said. "I am gaining a passport and citizenship and hopefully that will be not far around the corner.
“All my family on my mother’s side are Irish and I am looking to get on the international scene.”
Elsewhere, defender Tommy Smith, who isn't in action during this international week, says he'd be honoured to succeed the retiring Ryan Nelsen as New Zealand's captain, having worn the armband in the new Toronto FC boss's absence previously: “It would be a great honour to be given the captaincy full time."

So, How Have They Done? by GeorgeITFC24
It's been roughly 12 months now since last year's summer signings have been at the club. There have been some great moments from our new players, and equally a few lows! But how well have they done in their debut seasons?
Who's Next Between the Sticks (Or Be Careful What You Wish For)? by MedwayTractor
Having read so many recent comments about our perceived goalkeeping problem, I have put my own thoughts together on this subject.
Norwich Promotion: A Good Thing Or A Bad Thing? by calumberjack
Now I know what you’re thinking but hear me out. Celebrating the promotion of our greatest rivals seems spineless and cowardly, especially as they were the ones that dumped us out of the play-offs, but as I sat watching the second spectacular goal scored by that **** Nathan Redmond, I couldn’t help but ask myself whether this was really such a bad thing.
Gerken Vs Bialkowski by GeorgeITFC24
Looking back on the season our two goalkeepers shared the starting spot this campaign. Dean Gerken spent almost every match of the 2013/14 in the Town goal as the undisputed number one.
Goals From Midfield by rickw
Looking back on this season and most of us would admit Ipswich reached or exceeded our expectations, but after coming so close to success we are now all hungry for more - and for Ipswich to take that next step and challenge for automatic promotion.
