While most of our squad were getting a much needed rest this weekend, two of our Forest boys were away on international duty. Lee Camp and Chris Gunter still couldn't get away from disappointing performances though as both of their countries fell to defeats.
First up was Lee Camp on Friday night, who was earning his first Northern Ireland cap after finally getting international clearance last month. In typical fashion, he was on hand to produce an excellent reflex stop from an Ivanovic header early in the second half while showing his typical confidence and ability. Unfortunately for Camp, it wasn't to be the dream start he'd have hoped for as Northern Ireland squandered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1. But there was some positive with most reports saying Camp was Northern Ireland's man of the match. Well done Lee!
Yesterday, Chris Gunter then went on to play for Wales against England - a game I'm sure the vast majority of us saw. Despite Wales losing 2-0, I though Gunter had a great game keeping Rooney quiet and being one of Wales' best players on the day. Ex-Reds loanee Aaron Ramsey also featured, as he went on to become Wales youngest ever captain at the age of 20.
It's a relief to say international's are now out of the way until June, allowing both Camp and Gunter the chance to fully focus on the final push for promotion.
