Newcastle United international midfielder red carded on Sunday for his country
It looks like an early return to Tyneside for Jeff Hendrick.
A poor display from the Newcastle midfielder on Sunday and than to make matters worse, sent off in the fourth minute of added time.
The Republic of Ireland were already losing 1-0 to Wales, when the Newcastle midfielder brought down Tyler Roberts when he (Hendrick) was last man.
Guessing this will mean that Jeff Hendrick will be suspended for the game against Bulgaria on Wednesday.
So an early return to the Newcastle training ground on the cards, ahead of Chelsea on Saturday.
Newcastle United internationals:
Wednesday 11 November
Belgium 2 Switzerland 1
A frustrating night for Fabian Schar as Switzerland took a first-half lead through Mehmedi and were the better team on the night, only to lose this friendly due to two second-half goals from Crystal Palace’s on-loan from Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, Belgium’s only two shots on target all night.
Denmark 2 Sweden 0
Emil Krafth and the other English based players weren’t involved due to quarantine restrictions on travellers from Denmark arriving in UK.
Thursday 12 November
Serbia 1 Scotland 1 – Scotland win 5-4 on penalties
Ryan Fraser watching on from home with a hamstring injury, celebrating as Scotland qualify for finals of 2020 Euros to be played in summer 2021. Mitrovic missing the decisive penalty.
The first major tournament for them since the 1998 World Cup in France.
Northern Ireland 1 Slovakia 2 (AET)
A night of drama in Belfast.
Jamal Lewis playing the full 120 minutes but ending on the losing side, whilst the injured Martin Dubravka celebrated from home (watch him dancing with his dog HERE), Slovakia having qualified for the Euro 2020 finals next summer.
Argentina 1 Paraguay 1
This World Cup qualifier saw Miguel Almiron in excellent form at both ends of the pitch.
The NUFC man winning the penalty that gave Paraguay the lead, as well as doubling up on Lionel Messi throughout the 90 minutes and helping to largely nullify his threat. Almiron finally subbed in the second minute of added time after an exhausting performance. A yellow card means that after picking up two bookings in his last two games, Almiron is suspended now for the Bolivia match on Tuesday.
England 3 Republic of Ireland 0
An easy win for England who totally dominated, Jeff Hendrick playing the full 90 minutes.
