He also played 60 minutes, which hopefully shows he's back on the road to full fitness.

He should have only played 30 but lasted right through extra time too and was still able to knock in his penalty :)

genuine question - what is the most number of Internationals we've had in a first team squad ?

Kyle Lafferty came on as a sub for NI
4th choice striker came on as a sub for Czech Republic
Wood was supposed to play v Belgium tonight but NZ cancelled the fixture due to Covid fears.

If you mean we once had Kieran Trippier at right back and Michael Keane in the centre and now we've got Matt Lowton and Kevin Long, then I fully support your point.

I'm fairly sure that we had 3 in the N. Ireland team at the same time - McIlroy, Elder and Irvine. It could even have been 4 as Sammy Todd also played for N. Ireland around the same time.

This... not that we should be expecting players of Keane and Trippier's current ability in our side, but the strategy was always to have players who can progress to that level.

In Lowton and Long this is most definitely not the case.

Sure that has happened more recently with, Duff, Lafferty & Jones

Did we have Walters, Ward, Long, Brady all in the squad once? Must have been fairly close

I think you could add Hendrick to the list.

You’re quite right - recruitment used to be good.

It’s now either dog **** or non existent.
