Boyd, on loan from Peterborough until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal, started for Gordon Strachan's side, whose slim hopes of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil ended with a 2-0 defeat.

Boyd's Hull team-mates Ahmed Elmohamady, Gedo and Ahmed Fathi all helped Egypt to a 2-1 victory over Zimbabwe as they stayed top of their qualifying group.

Wing-back Elmohamady and striker Gedo played for 66 and 80 minutes respectively, while defender Fathi was a half-time substitute.

Tigers defender Alex Bruce and midfielder Corry Evans were both unused substitutes for Northern Ireland, who lost 2-0 to Israel at Windsor Park in Belfast.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
