George Boyd: Made his Scotland debut on Tuesday night

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.

ang on there!! We've only just won the second in a row. Don't we have to win three, like Brazil, to get to keep the Cup permanently at our stadium? ;-)

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
