International Reds round-up

Wayne Rooney won his 70th cap for England as Fabio Capello's team eased to a 2-0 victory in Wales.

Early goals by Frank Lampard (penalty) and Darren Bent secured a comfortable success in Group G of the European Championship qualifiers and Wayne was withdrawn with 20 minutes remaining.

"I decided for a new position for Rooney," admitted Capello afterwards. "When we are defending, he and [Aston Villa winger] Ashley Young are staying wide but, when we had the ball, they caused Wales problems."
The Reds striker did pick up a first-half booking that rules him out of the Wembley fixture with Switzerland in June.

Elsewhere, Darron Gibson helped Republic of Ireland to a 2-1 success against Macedonia. Our midfielder's free-kick was spilled by Edin Nuredinovski to allow West Ham loanee Robbie Keane to score what turned out to be the eventual winner.

Mexico striker Javier Hernandez just cannot stop scoring at the moment as he struck twice in the first half of his country's 3-1 win over Paraguay. Chicharito dived to head home a Pablo Barrera cross and netted his second from close range to kill the match as a contest with only 35 minutes on the clock. He was afforded a rest with 25 minutes remaining.

Antonio Valencia was substituted towards the end of Ecuador's 2-0 defeat to Colombia in Madrid as he gets more minutes under his belt following his return from a long-term injury lay-off.

Nani was influential in Portugal's 1-1 draw with Chile in Leiria. The winger's corner led to Silvestre Valera opening the scoring and he played well in his 85 minutes on the pitch.

On Friday night, brothers Jonny and Corry Evans were in the Northern Ireland side unfortunately defeated 2-1 in Serbia with ex-United winger Zoran Tosic grabbing the winner.

Patrice Evra made his comeback to the France line-up in their 2-0 victory in Luxembourg.
