'If It's Football, It's Vital'

International Round-Up

Charlie Adam's first game for Scotland since 2007 did not go as planned, as an inexperienced Scottish side went down 2-0 to Japan after two goals by the hosts in the last ten minutes.

However, by then Charlie had been substituted, having played just shy of seventy minutes in what appeared to be a slightly more defensive role than he plays for us.

He was quiet, but that was largely because Japan dominated. On Scotland's rare forays forward though, Charlie showed glimpses of what he's capable of (although a horrible back pass nearly gifted Japan a goal!), and will be hoping that he's done enough to be given another chance to impress.

Neal Eardley played just shy of ten minutes for Wales, having replaced Lewis Nyatanga in the 2-1 defeat to Finland. The full back will be disappointed not to have been given the opportunity to build on his impressive start for the Seasiders.

However, team mate David Vaughan fared rather better. Selected for the first time in a year due to an injury crisis in the Welsh midfield, Vaughan shone on the left of a midfield three and set up Craig Bellamy's goal after linking up brilliantly with Gareth Bale.

The commentators raved about Vaughan throughout, who seems to have transferred his sparkling early season form with the Seasiders onto the international circuit.

No one has ever doubted Vaughan's ability, and everyone will be hoping that he can stay fit and continue to impress for both club and country over the coming season.

The players' attention now switch back to Bloomfield Road where the Seasiders face Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.
