Two Rovers players could go head-to-head in international action later today.

Jason Lowe's England side face Josh King's Norway team on matchday two of the European Under-21 Championship.

 

The Young Lions will be looking to bounce back from the 1-0 defeat to Italy in their opening game, whilst Norway are also looking for their first win of the tournament following their 2-2 draw with hosts Israel.

 

Josh is unlikely to feature from the start after playing 70 minutes for Norway's senior side in a World Cup qualifier against Albania last night.

 

Albania led through Valdet Rama's first-half strike, but the hosts were denied victory by Tom Hogli's late equaliser.

 

The point keeps Norway fourth in Group E, three points behind leaders Switzerland.

 

In Group A, Scotland produced one of the shock results of the night with a 1-0 victory away to Croatia.

 

Roberts Snodgrass scored the only goal of the game midway through the first half, as Scotland secured their first win of their qualifying campaign.

 

Grant Hanley played the full 90 minutes for Gordon Strachan's side, whilst Jordan Rhodes came on as a substitute midway through the second half.
