No international breaks or strains

It looks as though we've got through another round of international fixtures without any scrapes, thankfully. Spidermag made a brief appearance for Argentina against Nigeria in Bangladesh, while Yohan Cabaye put in a 75-minute-long shift as France ground out a disappointing 0-0 draw in Romania. Cabaye had been drafted in following Friday's sub-par 2-1 win over Albania, with the illustrious likes of Samir Nasri and Florent Malouda dropping out at his expense. Tim Krul's exclusion from the Dutch squad that took on Finland was good news too.

Meanwhile, Davide Santon - in line to make his Toon debut at Loftus Road on Monday - captained the Italian U21 side to a comfortable 3-0 victory in Hungary. Tamas Kadar, on the opposing side, was booked for a foul on his new team-mate - taking his frustration out on the latest person to stand between him and a place in our first team, perhaps?
