9 September 2014

Full round up of Bolton Wanderers players in international action

Lee Chung-Yong, Medo and Tim Ream were just three of the members from Dougie Freedman’s first team squad to feature for their respective nations over the course of the recent international break.

Temporary South Korea captain Lee started in both of his nation’s recent friendlies against South American sides Venezuela and Uruguay, as they continue their preparations for the 2015 Asian Cup in January.

The winger played 88 minutes in Korea’s 3-1 win over Venezuela in their first match since the 2014 World Cup, before completing the full 90 minutes in their narrow 1-0 defeat to Uruguay.

Elsewhere, Medo played the full 90 minutes for Sierra Leone in their 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Ivory Coast as they fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat, while Tim Ream won his first international cap since June 2011 as he came on as a half-time substitute during USA’s 1-0 friendly victory over Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, Adam Bogdan was an unused substitute for Hungary as they kicked off the Euro 2016 qualification campaign with a defeat, losing 2-1 at home to Northern Ireland.

Youngster Conor Wilkinson completed the full 90 minutes for Republic of Ireland U21s as they lost 2-0 against Germany in their latest UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifier, while Jamie Thomas scored in both of Wales U19s 3-1 and 2-1 friendly wins over Montenegro last week.

Medo faces another AFCON qualifier with Sierra Leone against DR Congo on Wednesday before returning to BL6, ahead of Wanderers’ Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, while Chris Lester is set to feature in Northern Ireland’s European Under-21 Championship Qualifier against Serbia on Tuesday night.
