International round-up

13 October 2015

Nine Nottingham Forest players have been involved with their national teams recently.

David Vaughan and Jonny Williams (Wales)

Forest duo David Vaughan and Jonny Williams were part of a Wales squad who qualified for their first major tournament since 1958. Chris Coleman’s side were beaten 2-0 by Bosnia on Saturday, a match in which Vaughan and Williams were unused substitutes, but other results in their group guaranteed their place at France 2016. Williams and Vaughan put in strong performances against Andorra on Tuesday and will return to Forest with plenty of confidence.

Jamie Ward (Northern Ireland)

Northern Ireland qualified for Euro 2016 after a 3-1 win over Greece on Thursday night. Jamie Ward produced a fine display before being substituted with ten minutes to play. Ward was an unused substitute against Finland on Sunday.

Deimantas Petravicius (Lithuania)

Forest Under 21s winger Deimantas Petravicius made second-half substitute appearances against Slovenia and England while away with Lithuania.

Antreas Karo (Cyprus Under 21s)

Following some excellent form for Forest’s Under 21s at the start of the season, Antreas Karo received a call-up to the Cyprus Under 21 squad to help them get off the bottom of their European Championship qualifying group. Karo was an unused substitute in Cyprus’ defeats to Slovakia and Belarus.

Tyler Walker (England Under 20s)

After scoring two goals on his England Under 20s debut last month, the Mercedes-Benz Elite Cup presented Tyler Walker with another chance to represent the Three Lions. The Forest striker was an 87th-minute substitute in England's first match, a 3-1 victory over Holland last Wednesday, before playing the majority of the match against Turkey on Saturday. Walker played the last 12 minutes of Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Germany, which saw the hosts pip England to the trophy.

Tim Erlandsson (Sweden Under 20s)

Strong form for Forest’s Under 18s has seen Tim Erlandsson promoted to the Under 21s in recent weeks and the goalkeeper was rewarded with a call-up to the Sweden Under 20s squad. The shotstopper played the first half of his country’s friendly against Denmark on Monday.

Oliver Burke and Alex Iacovitti (Scotland Under 19s)

Former Forest midfielder and current Scotland Under 19s head coach Scot Gemmill selected Reds pair Oliver Burke and Alex Iacovitti (pictured) to take part in an Under 19 international tournament in Stuttgart. The pair featured in the first game against Mexico on Tuesday, with Burke scoring the equaliser and Iacovitti playing the second half as Scotland ran out 3-1 winners. Iacovitti played the full match as Scotland drew 2-2 with USA on Friday, Burke an unused substitute, and the duo started against Germany on Monday night. Iacovitti played the full match and Burke 85 minutes as their side drew 2-2, narrowly missing out on a tournament victory.
