Sam Scores In Wales Win

6 March 2014

Sam Vokes got himself on the scoresheet for Wales on Wednesday night as four Clarets featured for their international teams.

The in-form striker found the net just after the hour mark as Wales overcame Iceland in a friendly match at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Vokes was able to carry his club form, which has seen him net 18 times for Burnley this season, to international level as he helped Wales to a 3-1 win on home soil.

Vokes’ strike-partner Danny Ings was also in action for his country, with the forward helping England U21’s secure a 1-0 win in their Euro U21 qualification match against Wales at Derby’s iPro Stadium.

Ings’ 67th minute introduction was his third appearance for the U21’s, after the striker scored twice on his home debut against San Marino U21’s in November.

Earlier in the day, 19-year-old Cameron Howieson featured for just over 20 minutes and helped New Zealand pull a goal back in their 4-2 friendly defeat to Japan in Tokyo.

Elsewhere, young left-back Luke Conlan played the full 90 minutes as Northern Ireland U21’s slipped to a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Italy U21’s.

And finally, Danny Lafferty watched from the bench as his Northern Ireland teammates recorded a 0-0 draw with Cyprus in Nicosia.
