International round-up

Niko Kranjcar smashed home a 30-yard special to hand Croatia victory in Belgium on Wednesday night.

The only goal of the friendly in Brussells was an all-Spurs affair as Luka Modric rolled the ball wide to Niko, who stepped in from the left and crashed his shot home.

Niko and Vedran Corluka played the full 90 minutes, Luka played 65.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Sebastien Bassong both played as Cameroon picked up a creditable draw against world champions Italy in Monaca. Benoit played the full 90 minutes, Sebastien the first half.

Gareth Bale played 67 minutes as Wales lost 1-0 at home to Sweden, Wilson Palacios put in a 67-minute shift as Honduras lost 2-0 in Turkey while in-form Roman Pavlyuchenko came on for the second half as Russia drew 1-1 in Hungary.

Of our players out on loan, Alan Hutton played 90 minutes as Scotland beat Czech Republic 1-0 and Giovani did the same as Mexico toppled New Zealand 2-0 in America.
