WEEKEND INTERNATIONAL ROUND-UP

8 September 2014

Wins for Boyce and Kvist in qualification weekend.

• Boyce scores in Barbados win
• Kvist helps Danes to impressive opening win
• Maloney features for Scotland whilst Huws set for Andorra test on Tuesday

Emmerson Boyce’s Barbados secured their safe passage to the 2014 Caribbean Cup final qualifying round with a 4-1 win over Bonaire on Sunday.

Boyce came off the bench to score the opening goal as his side won comfortably despite being down to ten men.

Barbados, who went through in Group Three of qualification alongside hosts Martinique, will now enter the final stage of qualification in a group with Haiti, St. Kitts and Nevis and the French Guiana.

Elsewhere, new Latics signing William Kvist played 74 minutes of Denmark’s 2-1 win over Armenia in Euro 2016 qualification.

The Danes went behind to Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s 50th minute strike before Pierre Hojbjerg levelled 15 minutes later.

Kvist’s replacement, Thomas Kahlenberg, bagged the win after being on the pitch for just six minutes as Morten Olsen’s side lead Group I after the opening round of fixtures.

Meanwhile, Shaun Maloney played the final ten minutes as Scotland lost 2-1 to World Champions Germany.

Ikechi Anya looked to have earned Gordon Strachan’s spirited Scots a point after Thomas Muller opened the scoring but the German striker struck a late blow to leave the Tartan Army with nothing to show for a positive performance.

Former Latics James McArthur also came off the bench as Scotland now prepare for a home game with Georgia in October.

On Tuesday, midfielder Emyr Huws will complete the international action for Latics players as Wales open their Euro 2016 qualification campaign in Andorra.
