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."

Has Carlos flown to the other side of the world midweek?

Can't see him starting on Saturday at Blackburn if so

May Sixth- could be a blessing in disguise if Edwards misses out on Saturday as he has been very poor of late.

But please please don't bring Jet into contention.

Just hope they all come back fit and ready for Blackburn away on saturday. Northern Ireland must be awful if Carson gets in their national squad when he doesn't even get into our match day squad!

No doubt Edwards will still continue to play even though his contribution is poor and he is poor, so much for young and hungry players

I have I say I am REALLY getting excited about this Gunnar Thorsteinsson and hope he gets a senior debut soon!
