Reds midfielder Grant McCann became the first player in I don't know how long to score for his national side whilst being on Barnsley books.
McCann headed in his first ever international goal right at the death to seal a 4-1 win for Northern Ireland in Liechtenstein last night in Euro 2008 Qualifying
McCann headed in a right wing cross from Sheffield United's Keith Gillespie
to add to Leeds United's David Healy's hat-trick (his second in qualifying) to make it a real Yorkshire night.
The win lifted Ireland to 2nd in Group F so we may yet see Grant in Austria and Switzerland in 2008.
Elsewhere on international duty, on loan defender Lewin Nyatanga played in the full 90 minutes in Wales 1-0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland at Croke Park, goalkeeper Nick Colgan was an unused substitute in that game for the Irish.
Striker Peter Rajczi played 53 minutes of Hungary's 2-1 defeat in Montenegro.
Elsewhere in less glamorous surroundings Robbie Williams scored on his debut for Blackpool in their 3-1 win at Bradford. Williams who has joined the Seasiders on loan opened the scoring just 6 minutes in whilst Dale Tonge had a debut to forget with Gillingham who were thumped 5-0 at Carlisle.
P.S If anybody does know who the last player was to score for his national side whilst with Barnsley please let me know http://www.barnsley-mad.co.uk/feedback/loadcont.asp?cid=EMED and I will put in this article. I've got a feeling it might be Darren Barnard for Wales but Im not sure.
