Hewitt's Wales U21s Beat Thorsteinsson's Icelanders
Wednesday, 6th Feb 2013 21:48
Elliott Hewitt’s Wales U21s beat fellow Blues youngster Gunnar Thorsteinsson’s Icelanders 3-0 at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli this afternoon. Bristol City’s Wes Burns, Jonathan Williams of Crystal Palace and Wrexham’s Robert Ogleby netted the goals in the final 12 minutes.
Right-back Hewitt won his sixth cap for the side coached by former Blue Geraint Williams, while Town defender or midfielder Gunnar Thorsteinsson came on as a 62nd minute sub for Iceland to win his first U21 cap.
Elsewhere this evening, Josh Carson was an unused sub as Northern Ireland drew 0-0 in a friendly in Malta, while loan keeper Stephen Henderson remained on the bench throughout the Republic of Ireland’s 2-0 home win against Poland.
Overnight, skipper Carlos Edwards will win his 83rd cap with Trinidad and Tobago, and will be looking for his fifth international goal, when the Soca Warriors take on Peru in a home friendly.

The National Conundrum by Bluetaff
No, not the referendum – although don’t get me started on that can of worms, I mean the constant disappointment of the national team at… well, the national game.

14 Years in the Second Tier But Be Careful What You Wish For by ORomeoZondervan
It is true, Ipswich have spent 14 consecutive years in the second tier of English football. Some would be quite proud of this achievement but others view this as abject failure, point to others' successes and believe a change at top is the answer.
However, I think some perspective is required.
