There were two centre midfielders, two wingers and a striker involved in International football over this break. Here is a look at how they got on.

Oliver Norwood- Northern Ireland

Oli was the most successful of our players on International duty as he continues his fine start to the season. He played the full game in both of Northern Ireland’s qualifiers and he was instrumental in a win and a draw to confirm automatic qualification to Euro 2016. Northern Ireland beat Greece 3-1 and drew 1-1 in Finland and Norwood is one of four Royals that could potentially be heading to France in the summer.

Danny Williams- USA

Williams clocked up the air miles as he travelled to the USA to face Costa Rica at home as they lost 1-0. Danny played the 90 minutes yesterday and may well be rested for Charlton on Saturday.

Paolo Hurtado- Peru

Hurtado played the last eight minutes in Peru’s defeat to Colombia on October 8th. He was then an Unused sub in Peru’s loss at home to Chile last night resulting in a disappointing International break for Paolo. He’ll be looking to kick start his Reading career now.

Garath Mccleary- Jamaica

Like Hector, Mccleary wasn’t involved in Jamaica’s 3-0 loss to South Korea. Last time he did play for Jamaica, he sustained an injured and treated badly according to Clarke so Steve may well be chuffed he wasn’t used.

Hal Robson-Kanu- Wales

Kanu was described as Wales’ unsung hero throughout the campaign and he worked his socks off again in Bosnia despite defeat. HRK then had a mixed night against Andorra as he was injured after 20 minutes, but the celebrations of qualification kept a smile on his face.
