Josh King was a second half substitute as Norway and Russia played out a 1-1 draw in Oslo.

The Rovers attacker was introduced in the 72nd minute as the home side came from behind to take a share of the spoils in the friendly international.

Fabio Capello's Russia got the perfect start, taking the lead after just three minutes through Oleg Shatov.

The Norwegian's drew level against the World Cup competitors, Anders Konradsen heading home with 13 minutes remaining.

There's just one more international match with a Rovers representative, Corry Evans' Northern Ireland take on Chile on Wednesday.
