LUFC International round up - Austin on target

LUFC International round up - Austin on target

Vital Leeds United catches up with how the players did on international duty in midweek.

It was a quiet night for the Leeds United players with only Rudi Austin in action.

Austin scored for Jamaica and he was also booked as they drew 2-2 at home with Honduras in their final CONCACAF group qualifying game.

Austin scored from the penalty spot to bring Jamaica level for a second time.

Jamaica finished bottom of their six-team group.

Ross McCormack played no part for Scotland as they finished their World Cup campaign with a 2-0 home win over Croatia.

McCormack watched from the bench, as former Leeds players were heavily involved. Robert Snodgrass gave Scotland the lead and Steven Naismith scored the second after former Leeds loan midfielder Barry Bannan saw his penalty saved.

It ended a disappointing campaign for Scotland, who are managed by former Leeds midfielder Gordon Strachan. Scotland finished fourth in their group, picking up eleven points from ten games.

Paul Green was also an unused substitute for Republic of Ireland as they finished their World Cup campaign with a 3-1 home win over Kazakhstan.

Ireland surprisingly fell behind before former Leeds striker Robbie Keane brought them level and they went on to secure the victory to finish fourth in their group.

Eric Grimes was rested for Republic of Ireland under-19`s with their group already won after winning their opening two games.

Grimes watched on from the bench as Ireland drew their final group game with Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-1.

Ireland will now prepare for the final round of qualification next spring as they look to book a place in the finals in Hungary later in the year.
