King for Country

10 October 2014

Josh King is expected to earn his 14th cap for his country this Friday evening when Norway take on Malta.

The Rovers forward is part of a 22-man squad that has travelled to Malta for the second match of their UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

The Norwegians started their quest to reach the finals in France with a home loss to Italy, King playing the full match in Oslo as they went down 2-0. So they'll be looking to get their first points on board against a Maltese side that started Group H with the same scoreline as they lost away to Croatia.

After Friday's game Norway return to home soil for Monday's qualifier against Bulgaria.

• Meanwhile, both Sam Lavelle and Darragh Lenihan featured for their respective countries on Thursday, but neither were on the winning side.

Lavelle played the full match for Scotland's Under-19s but they could only pick up a 0-0 draw with Lithuania, whilst Lenihan played the first half for the Republic of Ireland's Under-21s in their friendly against Norway, but they went down 3-1 in Drammen.
