Gunter and Robson-Kanu start in Wales triumph

28 March 2015

Read how our internationals got on today

Chris Gunter and Hal Robson-Kanu both started for Wales as they stormed to the top of Euro 2016 qualifying Group B with a brilliant 3-0 win in Israel.

A double from Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and one from Aaron Ramsey, who the Royals could face next month when we meet Arsenal at Wembley, was enough to see the Welsh make it 11 points from their opening five group games.

Chris Coleman's men are next in action in May, when they host Belgium in Cardiff, and victory there would give them a superb chance of reaching next summer's finals in France.

New signing Kwesi Appiah started for Ghana in their friendly with Senegal in Le Havre. After having an early penalty appeal turned down, the forward went on to play 80 minutes for the Black Stars as they fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat.

Aaron Kuhl made his debut for England U19s as they all-but secured their place at the Euro Championships with victory over Azerbaijan at Stadium Henry.

Kuhl started alongside Leeds' Lewis Cook in the centre of midfield and went on to play all 90 minutes of the 1-0 success. Rob Dickie, currently on loan at Vanarama Conference South side Basingstoke Town, was an unused substitute for the fixture.

Harry Cardwell played 45 minutes for Scotland U19s in their creditable 0-0 draw with Italy in Lindabrunn. The striker was replaced at half time as the Scots maintained their place at the summit of their qualification group. They are next in action on Tuesday when they take on Croatia.

On Friday night, Garath McCleary got 92 minutes under his belt for Jamaica in his first appearance for the Reggae Boyz since May. They came from behind to beat Venezuela 2-1 at the Montego Bay Stadium. 

Andrija Novakovich's USA U20s face England at Plymouth Argyle's Home Park tomorrow afternoon.
