Anyone like to hazard a guess as to the identity of the only Toon player to see full international action last night?

Not Peter Lovenkrands or Haris Vuckic, who didn't feature for Denmark or Slovenia respectively.

Not Tim Krul either - though he did captain the Dutch U21 side as they came close to overcoming a first-leg deficit and qualifying for the European Championships finals against Ukraine.

Nope, it was Joan Simun Edmundsson, who played the full 90 minutes for the Faroe Islands as they held Northern Ireland to a 1-1 draw. The 19-year-old forward may be yet to make his competitive debut for his current club side, but he's already (if you'll pardon the mixed metaphor) got seven international caps under his belt.
