Blades trio make world stage
Updated Monday, 28th March 2011
Sheffield United trio Ched Evans, Daniel Bogdanovic and Bjorn Helge Riise were all on international duty over the weekend.
Evans was a half-time replacement for Steve Morrison in Wales' 2-0 home defeat to Euro 2012 qualifying rivals England on Saturday and fellow Blades striker Bogdanovic played the full 90 minutes for Malta, who went down to a solitary last-minute goal at home to Greece.
Blades midfielder Riise, on loan from Fulham, played alongside brother John Arne as Norway drew 1-1 with Denmark in Oslo.
Meanwhile, Blades' teenage striker Jordan Slew is hoping to feature for England Under-19s in their freindly in Holland after being drafted in as a replacement for the injured Alex Chamberlain.
